We survived our first painting project! I really can't take much credit through, since most of last week I was fighting the flu, so I never even so much as picked up a paint brush. Big thank you to Bri for making this happen, and doing such a damn good job! Sometimes when I see how meticulous, detailed and thorough he is, it makes me crazy that someone out there has not hired him yet! I know I am biased- but he's an amazing worker and I'm glad I have him to complete my honey-do lists! (As you'll see below, Betty (kitty) also stepped in to help and supervise a bit as well.)
A few touches before the project got started to see how it looks in different lights...
Betty has approved this paint tray for use.
Gulp! Here we go!
Hmmm, Betty needs to check this out- every last inch of it!
Finished product. We are very happy with the subtle, yet overall dramatic difference. It feels polished, clean and soothing. I'd say it was a success for a first time project!
Another view of the livingroom. We like the "Robin's Egg" feel of the walls and how they compliment the dark brown furniture and dark wood furniture & blinds.
So- what do you think!?! And, do you have any painting experiences worth sharing? Please comment them here! We are thinking about tackling the kitchen next- particularly painting the cabinets/ new harware/ walls. Advice? Dos? Donts? Help us out!
