Getting Started

Last week I was invited via email to Budeke’s (local paint store) Benjamin Moore Color Workshop on new spring colors.  I had been to two similar workshops and had a great time.

  • They have food when you arrive.
  • The seminar is well-planned and presented by a pro from Benjamin Moore corporate.
  • They give you a gift bag with gifts and coupons when you leave.

The actual seminar was last night but before it began I was ready to purchase my paint for the little bedroom project. I bought a gallon of “Head Over Heels” with a $5  coupon from the last seminar and a free sample pint of “Meditation” for a special project that I have in mind. Both of these colors are from the Affinity Colors line which, by the way, fan deck ($25 retail) was included in the gift bag.  The Affinity colors are special because any color of the 144 in the deck goes with any other color in the deck.

 So today I can finally begin this long overdue project.

Are you getting started today?  What’s the project?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
