~ Painting with Cat Help~

 This is EeeBee, she has helped me tremendously in the past few days ...Days that have been spent painting my bedroom  and bathroom...
For a couple of days, everything was a total mess...but getting rid of the original pinkish paint that has been on my walls since moving here has been worth it...EeeBee didn't like it either and with her urging, I finally bought paint and got to painting!!
 We had to gather all our supplies and start taping the moldings and cleaning the room as we went along. Luckily, the whole family helped...or I would still be working on it!!
 I am transitioning from loving  brown to being gray-crazy...I just love gray now!! So it took a solid week or two to find the right shade of gray...Why can't they have just one shade??!! lol
 It is a nice cool tone but I chose more of a black- based gray than a blue- based gray...Yes, it matters!!
 As you can see, sunlight and shadows  do distort the color a little. I think the best photo would be the first "after" pic...It is more true to life...
 This is my adjoining bathroom. I chose a nice vibrant yellow to wake me up in the morning!
Finally, I just want to thank EeeBee for her help and encouragement. She was with me every step of the way and her advice was right on the money...Her help has been invaluable too. Please remember to thank your cat today...You may not realize it but they have quietly supported you all along and they don't hesitate to jump in there and get their paws dirty...for a minute or two! 
Take Care,
Tina
