She's At It Again

Our hallway has not been painted in over 20 years so mom says that this will be the next project!
The walls will be antique white and the trim color will be different - bye bye blue!

It's coming along!  The walls are no longer yellow - they're white!
Do you think we can talk her into more Airedale stencils?

It's very boring at our house. All mom wants to do is work on this stoopid hallway! She says it's fun!  Our idea of fun is a whole lot different!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Maggie and Mitch-
Now you will have a clean slate to leave Aire-dirt. Our walls, especially by the doors, have Aire-dirt (why stencil, heehee)

Wow, we have a whole lot of fun projects here for your Mom. Almost every room needs painting.

Bocci said...

Yes, we'd love to hire your Mom out for some painting projects...fun? Parental Unit is a compulsive cleaner-that's what she considers fun! So she will happily clean up after you paint...:-)

Teddy said...

Yes, moms have a weird idea of fun. Real fun is running outdoors and playing. Maybe our moms need to change their priorities :)

Faya said...

Maybe you could help your mom. Use your paws as a brush....

Humans never seem happy with things just the way are, especially moms. I have found the best way to deal with it is simply lay on your bed and sigh a lot :)

Sherry said...

If the first photo is the "before," the walls are amazingly clean for a doggie house. After only 3 years, lots of my walls need repainting. I think walls just suck dirt off the dogs and that's why so little dirt comes off Alanis when I bathe her.

Maybe if you keep throwing a ball for her to chase she'll lose interest in the hall.

You Mom has been bit by the re-do bug - Mom wishes it would bite her too as there are many areas here that could use some new looks. Let's hope your Mom needs to take a few breaks from her work and give you two some attention AND some treats.

Nelly said...

Oooops! Your Mum is giving our Mum ideas. We have rooms that need a coat of paint too. Looks like it's going to be a busy 2011!

Hi Maggie & Mitch,we gave up ever trying to understand humans.
We suggest you look for a nice contrasting colour and dip your paws in.
Then go along the wall pressing your paws against the wall.
We can assure you that will look wonderful andyour humans will thank you..........not at first.......but once they come to appreciate your artistic talent.
love

That looks really pretty!! So white!! This house we have hasn't been painted in some rooms for 10 years and it looks bad. The white is yellow looking from that "clean" gas heat we have! I would have to hire somebody to do it though...the last time I painted somebodies walls, I had more paint on me than the walls!! Don't forget to stop and have some fun!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Mack said...

I just know you guys are helping big time!!

Sam said...

Hi Maggie & Mitch,

Our house is the same color it was when my mom and dad moved in, some 13 years ago. We weren't here yet but our great uncles were. We came along about six years ago. We don't really care what color the walls are as long as it's home. But your mom is always welcome to come up for a visit to do our walls :)

Lorenza said...

Now you know how I feel around here!
good luck!
I am sure it is going to look pawesome!

Thor said...

That's a great project! Don't let your mom work too hard, though! Call her to play!

Remington said...

Looks GREAT! I don't know why they seem to think that is fun....I say football is fun!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Doesn't your mom know she is supposed to entertain you two at all times and that a hallway is not your form of entertainment? Heehee! We love the color white for the walls and we hope she adds some Airedale stencils soon!

NORWOOD UNLEASHED said...

I think dale toe prints should go along the border. Tell mom I think that's boring too. Not a fun way to start a new year. Sigh
and the snow is gone!

The airedale stenciles are a must, darlings! Oh, and I think you should leave some paw prints on the wall. It's a whole lot of fun, I tell ya. ;)

Kess And Her Mama said...

It's amazing how a fresh coat of paint can transform the hallway! Looks beautiful. Did you manage to convince your human to put in the Airedale stencils?

Mango said...

Gosh, could she possibly choose a more boring project? What are you supposed to do? Watch paint dry? Might as well watch the snow melt.

Slobbers,

Penny and Patches said...

We think you need Airedale stencils in ALL the rooms! Now, you have given our mom ideas!

Sammy and Andy said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch, we are so very happy to meet you. We are also happy that you took a break from watching your mom paint to come to our mama's birthday party today.

Our mama says thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.....and she thinks you are both total cuties.

Ina in Alaska said...

Pirrozzolo/Pizzolato...what an amazing coincidence!!! Some people call me Pizz to this day! I always knew there was something about you that clicked with me.... especially our affinity for pasta!!! Maybe we are cousins...xoxo

Life With Dogs said...

That's the best looking 20 year old paint job I have seen in any dog lover's house. Impressive!

But it is fun to change. :)

The Rocky Creek Scotties said...

Moms are all like that. They think the strangest things are fun!! BOL!!

Somebody else said this too, but I really think you need to help paint.

Paws make nice paint brushes!

Jazzi said...

rottrover said...

Hey, better you than us. Sheesh. What are we supposed to do when they are "improving"?!? At least it looks nice. :-)

Thanks for visiting us!!

Priscilla said...

Never try to understand hoomans! They are far too complicated that even their own breed don't understand themselves!!!

Green Jeannie said...

First of all, I came over to wish you all a Very Happy New Year! Secondly, can your Mama come over here and help me? I have a new year project which is rather daunting to say the least.......the whole of the upstairs of this house here. And I have never decorated before.

Your hallway looks good in the before pictures to me!

Oh M & M,
We are sorry your Mummy is having an entirely different type of fun-time than what u would like.
And all your Aire-smells will also be gone...! We can sense much much hard work for u ahead. Can't u just start by putting some Aire-pawprints on the walls?
wags, Buddy n Ginger

Sally said...

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Happy New Year Maggie and Mitch!
We wish you a lovely good year filled with good health and good laugh.
PeeS: Yeah, our idea of fun is a whole lot different too!
Cheers!

GAIL said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, M.O.M. has been into the painting thing a lot lately too. And of course when she is on the ladder I don't get much walking activities or even very many doggie biscuits.
Speaking of doggie biscuits...the ones you guys sent in my Christmas gift exchange were sooo wonderful. But for some very strange reason they have all disapeared! Hmm, I was sure I didn't eat that many. Well, Maybe M.O.D. snuck me a few when the boss lady wasn't looking.
Sheez!
Hugs and wags, Mistaya

tula said...

parlance said...

Yeah, I say go for more airedale stencils!

Gus said...

We think airedale stencils are appropriate for any occasion. As are WFT things.

Rudy said...

Haha, I giggled at your last remark...you're right, our idea of fun surely is not painting!! Your mom is so crafty, I'm sure the hallway will be stunning.
Happy New Year Maggie and Mitch!
Love,
Rudy

Stardust said...

Airedale stencils please! And make them look like running up or down the stairs?

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

Your Mom is so talented. But we agree painting is really boring. Kaci and I like the idea of the airedale stenciling but what would be better than muddy paw prints on the walls?!?

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
