Grand reopening of redecorated Chez Paul
June 10, 2008 | It's been 3½ months, but the renovations Chez Paul are finally finished! Patty and the Paintbrushes finished up on Thursday afternoon, Réal helped move the furniture back in on Saturday, and on Sunday we held an inaugural brunch in the newly decorated digs.
I was like a little kid, running around hanging up pictures as soon as a wall dried, just to savor "the look." Miraculously the new paint made the old kitchen cabinets and old wall paper take on new life. Of course, Don the color consultant would say it was no miracle!
On Sunday the usual suspects arrived for brunch and their first glimpse of all the new decor. "Ooooh, I love the colors!" said Bob. "The tile is just great!" gushed Phil. "I'm not so sure about that orange in the den," ventured Ken. "It's not orange, it's harvest time, and besides, I love it and that's what counts," I rejoined.
Brunch was pot luck, and the pot was very lucky and tasty indeed. As usual, there was enough to serve at least a dozen people.
Take the slideshow tour to see pictures of the new and improved Chez Paul.
