First Dormer Gets a Coat of Paint. Part 14

I swear our house was moved here from the movie,
  The Amityville Horror!!
 (remember the fly room??)
  Nice underwear dude!

Sorry no underwear shots here.  Just a few flies.....

Amityville Horror house compared to the Feral Turtle residence.  See the resemblance? 

 Our plan is to phase out the flies and take back our space. 
 Dormer number one is starting to take shape. 
You can start our journey here
 or you can go back to the last dormer post here.

A coat or two of paint.
We used Veil in the dormer Snowfield  in the rest of the room.  It was a CIL paint chip 6R17

And still waiting for a ceiling!
I did phone the United States Post Office and was on hold for this long...

This was the second call.  The first call,
 I was on hold for 22 minutes and then suddenly got disconnected???
 I used my time wisely though.  I was able think about what I
 wanted Mr. FT to make for supper!
My parcel is in customs and has been there since Feb.14th  according to the nice lady on the other end!!    The upside is, we poured some floor leveling compound yesterday which means we will be laying the sub floor today!  But that's for another post!
You can see the next step where we lay the subfloor here.


  1. That is a great shade of gray that you painted the room. I think that is the color I want to do my bedroom in if my hubs ever gets off his ass and starts getting in the renovating mood. This winter has really put a damper on our creativity.

    My guest bedroom looks just like that with the flies, except they are ladybugs. I am starting to hate them with a passion!

  2. It's looking very promising and definitely more serene than the Amityville house once the walls are painted. I think it'll look cosy... once you have a floor!

  3. oh exciting!! I love renovating, it's looking good!

  4. It's SO hard to get the perfect gray, since it can lean toward red, blue, yellowish. But you NAILED it. And it makes a great fly camouflage.

  5. You are making some great progress girl! Love the grey! The flies? Not so much.

  6. Oh no, it does kind of look like the Amity house, lol. New paint looks awesome, what color is that? I hope customs releases your ceiling tiles asap, how frustrating!!! Arghhh

  7. oh geez I would be steaming being on hold that long.not keen on the flies but I wouldn't call it amityville just yet lol

  8. Don't forget the fireman's pole!!! You're pretty fly for a Canadian. :P


  9. It's really cruel to tease about an underwear shot and then not provide the goods. Whatevs. I'm scared that your house looks so amity-ish. Run away! Run away!

  10. Uhgg, now I see why you were talking about flies! Love the color you're choosing! Cannot stop thinking how are you going to utilize that dormer, a window bench, a desk? It's going to be the main feature in this room I'm sure.

  11. I love those shades of gray! That is going to be such an awesome room!


Cheers to great words!
