I never thought I would write a post about white paint.
Or six of the best white paint colors I’ve found.
Or that SW Alabaster is my new favorite paint color.
But then again….I never thought that I would move to the middle of the country.
Or drive a John Deere.
Or watch a tortoise cross my back yard.
Or wear colored jeans.
Or stop using Aqua Net hairspray.
Life’s funny like that.
I wasn’t planning on posting about the gatehouse until I had a room finished.
So I could post pictures and be all like….can you believe I already have a room finished?
And you would be all like….I can’t even believe it….you are so amazing.
(I love it when you tell me I’m amazing).
But then I changed my mind…..because you would have totally missed…..
….the surprise that we got when we took down the large mirrors.
My husband wanted to leave the mirrors.
I should have listened.
But I have the best idea for these walls…..that did not in any way involve over-sized mirrors.
And when he took the mirrors down and he saw this…..
….he didn’t say anything.
He just looked at me.
He looked at me with a look that said…..I told you taking down the mirrors was not a great idea and the room looked fine with those mirrors and now we have holes in the wall and I’ve got to patch and mud and let it dry and then repaint……and what was wrong with those mirrors anyway?
I wasn’t sure what to do next.
This was a delicate situation.
So I gulped.
And sheepishly smiled at him at first.
And then I winked and grinned.
And batted my eyelashes…..with a look that told him he was the most amazing husband in the entire world.
And then I picked up a paint brush and painted this.
Life is good in the country with an understanding husband…..
…..and a newly mudded and painted mirrorless wall.
PS The whole gatehouse has now been painted SW Alabaster.
It is the BEST white EVER!
PPS I ordered two of these…..
and one of these…..
So much better than mirrors any day!
