Good morning friends! This morning on #coffeetalk with Brooke & Hilary we chatted a lot about our homes! Have you heard of orange peel and boob lights? Well that’s what we talked about!
Orange peel is a kind of texture treatment they put on your drywall to hide the imperfections. So if you look at the walls in your home and they aren’t smooth, then you may have orange peel on them! That’s just the term for the texture. They spray on texture with the drywall mud and then knock it down with a trowel to create the orange peel affect! I picked orange peel texture when we gutted our house 15 years ago and Hilary talks about absolutely hating hers because she thinks it would look weird with a wall treatment she wants to use! And, we both understand how difficult patching when you have textured walls is!
Then, there are boob lights. Again, 15 years ago when we gutted our home, I PICKED boob lights for a lot of areas in our home! While I know they aren’t popular right now, I really don’t mind them and honestly have never seen anything that I thought I would want to swap them out with. So, they will stay! The next house is getting 1 million can lights and then I won’t have to worry about styles changing!
Hilary is in the middle of a basement refresh with painting cabinets, an electrician moving stuff around for her and an AMAZING paint by number gallery wall. Listen in to hear all about her progress!
And if you don’t know what it’s like to get motion sickness, you are blessed! Hilary and I, not so much. We chat about experiences growing up and in our adult life when it comes to getting motion sick! Believe me it is not fun! I have said it before and I will say it again…I have trained myself to go to sleep in a vehicle!! If you are asleep, you aren’t getting sick! Hence a lot of my family photos growing up are me MIA because I’m curled up asleep somewhere while the rest of the family enjoys the sites!
If you missed it, I was sick this week! Luckily just a 24 hour bug, but I LITERALLY could not sit up. And I never stay in bed all day, but Tuesday I was horizontal ALL day! At one point while I was horizontal I decided to work on the website a bit! That was a MISTAKE! Ugh, I ended up deleting a lot of pictures that I shouldn’t have. Yes, I have a backup, but…listen in to see why that wasn’t a rescue option.
Let’s just say it’s an exciting episode! Never a dull moment with Brooke & Hilary!
Have a great week my friends!
