It was so much fun yesterday morning meeting another blogger. I can't tell you who it was until she gets home from her trip but I can tell you we had a great time talking 'quilt'. Her husband checked out the fair and was impressed with the size of our fairgrounds. After they left I got out my helpers, super sliders and started moving furniture away from the next wall to be painted.
I'm going to show you why I hate my carpeting. I had it put in 17 years ago and painted the walls the same shade of taupe and was very happy with it.......until the carpeting started changing color. The pink area is where furniture was sitting. The carpet has a green cast in some areas and some areas are still taupe. The dark area near the wall is the rust from the bleeder leaking earlier this year. The only good news in all of this is that furniture will always cover the rust, and the carpet doesn't look as sick with the new contrasting paint color. I got the ceiling line taped on 20' of this 30' wall and I need to move the roll top desk before I can finish it. I will have to take all of the drawers out and then I can lift the corners just enough to stick the sliders under. I have moved the desk before so I know I can do it.....it's not fun, but I can do it.
