Decorating Disaster

A word of caution: if you own a rental house and the tenant asks, “Do you mind if I sponge paint the kitchen?, be sure to ask, “What color?” Evidently I forgot to ask about the color because when we arrived at our rental house in Bellingham, we were shocked to see a bright orange kitchen…with gold accents of course! The renters had lived there for three years, so we weren’t sure what to expect. We didn’t expect a pre-school inspired version of orange finger paint on the walls. At first Allan and I were overwhelmed at seeing the dirty oven, stained carpet, and orange paint. Yet four days later, we have an immaculate house with a sparkling oven, new carpet and boring beige paint.
