Well, thanks to some encouragement from a couple of bloggy friends, I forged ahead on my plan to make the front two rooms the same color. I just had to get mentally prepared, and that was easier said than done...
See that up there? It's a 10 foot wall. I stood on the next to the highest ladder rung to line out the wall with my pad painter - shaking and sweating the whole time. I had the living room "nook" done, complete with moving furniture and putting decor and curtains back in about 6 hours.
(Notice the newer paint looks yellow-ish now, but it dries darker, and softer.)
The pad painter is great for edging around stuff, like the built in shelf above the couch.
My newly painted room and I LOVE the color! Thanks for the encouragement, Melissa!(The Inspired Home)
Oh, goodness, Day 2 - more tall walls. Muscles sore and yet I have to get back up on that ladder.
This was a real pysch challenge for me, afraid of heights.
(Goodbye forever, minty green!)
At this point my painting clothes were drenched and I was talking myself through it out loud while listening to Parliament on Pandora. Listening to music while I paint helps me forget that I could fall and crack my skull and no one would find me til the afternoon...just breathe, Gina.
Stay tuned - newly improved front rooms coming soon...
