I have been stressing about the tunnels in each bathroom which frame the skylights. The paint is peeling and they need to be scraped and repainted. I don't have a ladder high enough to get into either one. So I figure if I'm going to hire someone to paint the exterior of the house, they might as well do those as well.
And I have a vaulted ceiling in the den with a ridiculously high wall I also cannot paint without an extraordinarily tall ladder. So I'm going to have those folks take care of that wall as well. Then I can handle the rest.
So... konagod loves nothing more than picking out paint colors while doing tequila shots. Hasn't failed me yet. But the choice I just presented txrad for the den elicited this response from him:
"This is not a circus house."
OK, so the color I had selected was for the really high wall -- it needs something to draw attention to the height, and the other walls would be more muted. The room is also north-facing and rather dark.
And the color I picked out may have been a bit too orange. I'll keep working on it.
I want to make a bold statement. For further reference, see The Den Project and tell me that room isn't screaming for something vibrant.
It also needs flooring but I'll get to that later.
