Busy day ahead

When we moved into this house three years ago, the previous owners left the walls full of the holes where they had hung up their pictures.  And they had A LOT!  Add to it, our own hangings, plus the damage done (intentionally or not) by the kids.  Pressure mounted baby gates are really hard on the inexpensive paint that was used and a few other things that were done without a whole lot of thought before we lived here.

Today we are having a friend of ours come and help Doug fill in some of the holes and prep the walls for priming and painting.  Although I love painting, one little quirk of this place is that the doors and baseboard trim are painted in a caramel color.  This means that painting the walls any other color than neutrals isn't going to happen.  Note to self... if we ever move, check what color the doors are.  Yes, I know I could paint the doors and trim back to white but that sounds like a huge job and I'd rather stick with painting walls.

Anyhow.  We'll see how the day plays out.
