Nightmare ALMOST Over . . . . .

We've got these 25-foot tall cathedral ceilings, which looked like they had never been painted ever (just white primer). It has taken us 2 1/2 years to find a painter willing to climb up there and teeter on the edge of ladders, risking life and limb, but we finally found one--thank you, Louis. So, our house has been looking like THIS lately:

It was a NIGHTMARE all through Father's Day, and the whole weekend when we had lots of things planned, and it is going to take a few days to put it all back together (and clean all the floors, rugs, etc. ). But it will look fabulous when we are done.

This is some swatching I'm doing to plan for a garter stitch jacket EZ-style. I see why EZ said she loves garter stitch. I'll have to get some other color for accent/trim. Maybe a red?

Check back soon and I'll try to post some "after" paint photos.
