Treehouse paint ~ ~ REVEAL!!!

We crammed sooooo much into the long Memorial weekend, that I wasn't sure which project to blog about first. To be fair to Chris and all his late nights spent with a paintbrush and power sprayer, I decided it was only fair to show off the interior paint in the treehouse.

Don't worry, he did start wearing a breathing mask soon after I shot this picture.

These next shots were taken after 11pm at night

These shots were taken at 7:30am with the morning light streaming though the windows

The toe and door molding isn't up yet, but we're "almost" ready to start moving in furniture and accessories.

The floor paint turned out far better than I expected. It's gorgeous. The pale blue turquoise/aqua is a stunning contrast to the white walls.

I wasn't sure how it was going to come together and it has exceeded my expectations in every way.

Thank you, Chris!!

I know you're growing tired of this project and all your new plants/landscaping projects are calling out to you.

We're almost to the finish line.

Oh my the new cute. I found two stools today..but they didn't measure up. That is the best color of turquoise I have seen in a while. Love how clean the lines are and the contrast...what a great husband to work so hard...He is going to need a super Father's Day gift. Smiles...Renee

That play house is adorable...I always dreamed of one when I was a little girl. We always made tree houses using old sheets, plywood, refrigerator boxes, etc. Love it!

Absolutely amazing, what an undertaking. Your husband is great with that paintsprayer. We tried one of those before once and still use only a brush or roller! The aqua floor is gorgeous. Can't wait to see a further reveal.

PS Love the new blog header with the lanterns, you always have such a great look!

Heather said...

Oh my goodness! I just love the white walls and blue floor. What a pretty combination. I can hardly wait to see the rest!

Thanks for your blogger advice! As you can see, I solved my commenting crisis! Let's hope blogger doesn't decide to pull another fast one!

Hi Kim,
Wow, how amazing! I saw your comment about the crinkly seam binding on Donna's blog. I design for Shabby Cottage Studio and I made a tutorial about how to do it....I went and got the link for you...If you go to it and scroll down, you will see pink crinkly seam binding with my tutorial...hope that helps!

I doubt anyone is getting tired of the progress here, trust me.
