It’s done – I’ve sent the great big pumpkin room to a room in the great big sky! Gone forever, although I have to appreciate that the great big pumpkin served it’s purpose for my need of bright colour at that time of my life. I now want something soothing, relaxing a place where I can breathe – think I’m getting old. I posted So Inspired as I was inspired by the Schmitt house. Cara does deserve a medal though she did all the work herself. I was all set to paint the room and trying to figure out how I was going to fit it in to my already busy weekend schedule and then my girlfriend told me she hired a painter. Got the painter in to give me a quote and hired him on the spot. I’m not use to hiring someone for something I can do, but have to say it was worth every penny – done in one day! Would of taken me two weeks! Here are the results – I’m still trying to get the room back together:
Pumpkin – gone, gone!
Still trying to figure out what pictures to bring back -has to be the right one!
Gone is the lego battleship!
Not Better Home and Gardens but it works for my family. My son’s artwork framed – can’t get much cheaper than that!
Bought this baby at Salvation Army for $24.00 – painting it white – I’ll show results when it’s finished! Good productive weekend at this house!

I’m considering hiring someone to paint. What price range would you suggest for a large lvg/dng combo? It looks awesome, btw! I’m in love w grey right now for paint.
The pumpkin room is a pretty big room – I’d say it’s equal to three bedrooms and I paid $300.00 – I gave him $325 -that included the paint. I did find someone who works under the table as an independent – I think if I paid a company I would of been looking at $500.00 – I will say – this is Canada and we tend to pay more for everything compared to the States.
Thanks! I’ll have to ask around here too, but gives me some idea.
