I was up early this morning, another beautiful sunny day. Kevin worked on the tables for the community center and I got my brush, roller and tray out. Another day of painting for me... more accurately priming. I primed the other three walls. Now the walls look white... no more peach/flesh sponge effect. Kevin brought up the scaffolding so that I can reach to the top of the 10-foot walls (in case I've never mentioned it before, I love that scaffolding... it comes apart and folds up neatly, and has been incredibly useful in our renovation in Burlington... and now here... one of our better buys).
Our house is a complete mess to say the least, but that's all part of the process... in a few days, this great room will have gone through a transformation... I live for transformations, so I'm happy.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
