A new adventure: painting! I haven't done much painting before, but I'm game to try new things, so here I go! Yesterday (Friday) I painted my guest bedroom red--it's a pretty unforgiveable color for a first paint job, let me tell you! My sister Sarah said she'd come live with me if I painted her room red, so...here ya go! The pictures are before, during, and after. I'm basically done now even though I'm not very happy with my trim job--but it looks good from a distance!
I am planning on painting my living room this summer, too (legend tan), but after this job, with my aching back, I'm not sure I want to. There is a painter in my church with 3 high school sons who may be available to help, though. And if he can come over...maybe he can fix my floorboard trim job in this room too. We'll see. I think I'm a pretty messy painter. But overall I was very pleased with the color (good pick, Sarah!) and the amount of paint I had purchased (used about 2 and a quarter gallons for 2 coats).
