Carter and Julie are outside working on a box of some sort when he realizes he's attached a shelf on the wrong side of its supports. But he's just all sort of cute and adorable about it, like a puppy who knows he's not supposed to be chewing your slippers. He doesn't start bellowing and destroying it with a sledge hammer like some people we could name. Not that that isn't just adorable in its own warped way, I suppose.
Laurie unwraps a Van Gogh print she's had framed. MPDP is completely overcome by it. It's an infrequently seen one, I think -- I'd not seen it before, anyway, and neither had Laurie and MPDP -- called Emperor Moth, St. Remy. It's all in shades of mossy, olive-y greens and greeny-yellows. Right up Laurie's alley, other than not being abstract. I quite like it. Everyone oohs and aahs. Laurie's all excited over the colour coordination.
Carter decides to try to pry off the misapplied board.
MPDP rummages through Styrofoam peanuts for the rest of Laurie's stuff. She comes up with a little dark yellow tin vase that's similar in colour to a bubble-wrapped plate she's already holding. MPDP squeals. It's a funky-looking little vase, but I don't know that it's squeal-worthy. But MPDP says she's really jealous. Laurie got this stuff at a flea market real cheap.
Frank has decided to do a "decoupage technique" with paper on the fireplace molding. He's using the same paper he used on the lamp bases: it's sort of an indistinct mottled/marbled paper that kind of looks like a Kleenex box circa 1983, or the wallpaper in the washroom at your dentist's office. And it seems to be in soft greenish tones with maybe a little yellow. I really don't see how it connects to anything else we've seen for this room so far.
Laurie's painting the celadon stripes and telling her team that it will definitely need a second coat, so they may have more homework than they expected. Now Laurie calls the turquoise colour "sage." I suppose it's more sage than turquoise, though.
