My Dad, the Rockstar

My Dad is a rock star.

Not this kind.

But the kind that would spend 3+ days transforming this hot pink bedroom


into a very pale mint green bedroom in my rental house that is for sale while I transformed the yellow room with the blue, cloudy ceiling into a pale mint green room with a white ceiling. We puttied the screw holes in the wall, sanded, put up blue painters tape, and got busy. While he put on 2 coats of barrier paint on the pink so it wouldn't bleed through, I put 5 coats of white ceiling paint on the clouds. After that the mint was easy. The decision to paint these 2 rooms had to do with the fact that the "average" home buyer might not appreciate cloudy ceilings or hot pink walls. Yup, sad, but true.

So, here is my public shout out to my Dad, the Rockstar. Not too many people would have helped me out like this and I mucho appreciate it.
Love you, Dad!

I love the pink too, but can see how toning it down would help sell.

Nice job, Daddio!

I actually like the pink, but I guess it's not so good for renting. What is with us this week and KISS?
