Color wars

 The purple drywall

The purple drywall

Ok, I promise that this digital archive  (I cannot stomach the term "blog" anymore) has not jumped the shark, or lost sight of it's original direction.  But one thing that I have realized is that it has become a very unexpected platform for me to have a dialogue with my late mother.  There were so many things I shared with her on a daily basis, and this remodel of our favorite room in the house would have undoubtedly been the topic of many conversations, so with this in mind, I am giving myself the freedom to break from clothing et al. for a moment and focus on this exciting project.  To share with you what I would have shared with her.  

Drywall is UP!  Not Green board, but purple (As I learned from my amazing contractor as he sent the first shipment of green board back to the supplier)  Purple drywall is the gold standard of drywall (insert ironic color jokes here) And is apparently far better for wet conditions then even green board, which apparently makes white board a jokey joke.  This feels real and exciting, next to the pantry, in honor of my mom and Julia Child, I will have good old fashioned peg board for my pots and pans.  Cant wait to post more pics!
