Progress. We finished painting "la buanderie" (the laundry room) last week and it looks so much better.
Alas, house projects are a little like makeovers. You gussy up one thing (new glasses, lipstick, tummy tuck) and suddenly you start seeing flaws in all the other parts. That was the trap we fell into. The laundry room looked so good that we decided to paint the upstairs toilet and the shower as well. Once those were done we noticed that the kitchen looked pretty bad so it was off to the hardware store for more paint and so on and so forth. At some point we will need to remember that "le mieux est l'ennemi du bien" (better is the enemy of good) but not just yet.....
Here is what the laundry room looked like before painting and below are a few shots of its new look :
Bathroom is still in progress (and now the kitchen too).
