Moving On

The move that was supposed to happen in September October November December January I give up is finally happening. In 7 days, I will have a new home. At last, we have closed on our apartment. I have been busy organizing the move and finalizing furniture purchases, selling the stuff we no longer need, choosing and then re-choosing window treatments and stressing over white paint. Seriously, how many shades of white are there?!?

Times like these call for stockinette! Lots and lots of it.

heh, i was going to say the same as HPNY.. eggshell or semi-gloss. i've already washed black newsprinty handprints off my walls. we have a white on some of our walls that has a hint of brown in it. so nice.

glad to hear you've almost moved!!

Criminy, it's white! What the hell could possibly be so different about them? HowEVER, since you do need to choose, I say go for Grand Teton White cuz it has the coolest name. Then you can tell everyone that your walls have big tits!

Good luck with your move. :)

Exciting! Yay! Moving with a little one is SO FUN! Seriously, I hope it goes very smoothly for you. And I'm very impressed, because we didn't even attempt to paint before moving in. Or since we've moved in, actually.

Paint manufacturers must pay someone to come up with names for all those whites. Mind-boggling. I have no opinion on the color, but I've noticed that food flung to the wall is hard to chip off whatever we have (it's a flat, not semi-gloss), and often leaves a blank spot when wiped off with a sponge. I'm just sayin'.

Yes, that surely calls for lots and lots of stockinette. Hope the move goes well.
