You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, and training them
up in God’s fear, and minding the house, and making your household a church for
God, as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of
hosts. Charles Spurgeon
Eight years ago, I painstakingly hand stamped and painted these bees on the wall. (Picture is after I sanded them a bit). It has been known as the "red bathroom" for 8 years. The den had a red accent wall, and decor. Two years ago, I got to buy new den furniture, and re-do the whole thing-----but the red bathroom remained---RED.
Until this week. I painted it, and the master bath. The blue is not as bright as it looks.
And the rest of my week was spent painting the cabinets. Before, they were 25 year old, beat up oak. One coat of oil-based primer.....which I paid for with an enormous headache the next day. Then 3 coats of the brown; NOT oil based. New hinges and pulls.
Hopefully with the new faucets, this will improve our chances of a sale!
