Are you wondering how Chicagoland is faring with -40 below windchill weather? It’s annoying and requires a lot of preparation – car in and out of the garage, water dripping at a trickle in the faucets, texting the kids to see how they are managing, worrying about Harry-Beast when he’s let outside to do his business, etc.
BUT tomorrow the temp is supposed to get to 24 degrees and everyone’s very excited about this forecast!
During this deep freeze I had offered an E-paint Sale. For a low low price, anyone could send me a photo of their space and I’d recommend up to 3 paint choices. Well my daughter’s landlord took me up on that sale!
My daughter and her fiance have been living in their apartment for 4 years now and it’s really nice that the landlord thought it was time for a refresh. She always compliments my daughter on how cute my daughter keeps the apartment. The Victorian home was built in the 1800’s and the once single-family home from long ago was at one time turned into a two-flat. When they first moved in, the apartment was painted a not-so-great yellowy beige. The landlord told me that it was not necessary to give her 3 choices of paint color, just one was fine as long as it was through Benjamin Moore. Here’s the room before the new paint job ….
My choice to improve the space? BM’s “Gray Owl”. My daughter sent me these “after” photos, they’re taken from her phone but you can get a little bit of a feel how much better the room looks ….
A lovely improvement, right? Gray Owl is cool and fresh. There is only one window in the living room (and, as you can see, there’s that cute little foyer right off the living room) so this fresh color in a darker room is perfect.
The landlord painted every room, even my future son-in-law’s home office ….
and the kitchen is painted too but it’s in dire need for new cabinets and flooring so there’s no need for us to visit in there today ….
So thank you Dear Landlord for taking me up on my Epaint Sale and for having my daughter’s apartment painted. It looks great and this young couple couldn’t be happier. What a difference a good paint color can make in a room!♥
