White Flag

As it turns out, we don't know popcorn ceilings as well as we thought we did.
On Thursday we scraped the first layer (yes, I said first layer) and there was still texture. We hadn't seen this before, but after talking to a few professionals (including Justin, who we now have on speed dial) it turns out that the entire ceiling is going to need to be mudded for me to have a smooth ceiling in the living room.
Mud masks, I know.
Mud puddles, I know.
Mud on ceilings, heck to the no!
So....we are waving the white flag for the weekend and waiting for Justin to finish it out.
On the bright side, Grandma camp work weekend turns weekend!
Have you heard about the new blog Favorite Paint Colors ? I am LOVING it. Real people are posting pictures of their of favorite paint colors. This is a gift to me, and seriously delightful since there are still many rooms to paint at my house. I love the color search option, too. Looking for the perfect gray? You can weed out everything else and see what has been submitted. Behr, Sherwin Williams, Ralph Lauren, Martha Stewart...they are all represented. La-la-la lovely!

Okay, gotta run.
My date is waiting.
Have a good one.
