How was your weekend? Ours was a reminder of why I am not meant for physical labour. Saturday and Sunday were spent painting my parents’ coffee shop that they recently bought. It was a painstaking process because of the time constraint but it turned out beautifully. I realize I didn’t get any after shots so I’ll have to post them at a later date. But the walls were a dark mustard yellow with brown as an accent (nice, eh?) but we repainted it to a beige-y latte colour with a grey accent. My description doesn’t seem to do it justice but it’s much brighter and welcoming than the colours before.
