Decorating by the Bay

 What do you get a man who has everything for Father’s Day? Well, you paint the interior of his summer house of course! No? What -that’s not the normal Father’s Day gift? Well, that’s exactly what the hubby and I got my FIL and let me tell you it was a huge P.I.T.A.! The ceilings were insanely high and we had a ladder that didn’t quite make it to the top.

Thank god for extension poles and duct tape! The hubby did an awesome job and reaching them and making it look professionally done! I gotta say it looks great! I still have a few craft projects that I am doing for the shore house, and we are also planning on getting my MIL new “beachy” side lamps. We hope that this “gift” goes over well, because my FIL has been wanting this done for a loooooong time. I think major brownies points were scored-BIG time!!

Before – all white walls (excuse the mess
After – the color is subtle for sure

Just for the record, those fake flowers are not my idea of decorating.
This was after I threw away 3 baskets of them! ugh
We did manage to stop painting just to sit on the deck and enjoy this view
