Painting Adventures

Painting has been WAY more work than we ever imagined! First, we moved a bunch of Kylen's stuff into the living room where it remains to this day. Other stuff we moved to the center of the room. Then, Greg taped borders which always needed to be done first with each coat.

Our first layer was this grey primer.
We kind of liked how the primer looked and actually thought about leaving the room that way!

We followed the primer with three coats of the Glidden Victorian Red. We had a little trouble with streaks, but for the most part we are happy with the end result. We are now in the process of removing tape and doing touch-ups.

The journey isn't over yet!

That's a bold color! I always have only done pastels. I notice a lot of magazines, catalogs show the darker walls lately. It's going to be beautiful Farrah.

LOVE the red, Farrah! It must feel great to be almost finished with it!

Farrah, What a beautiful job your guys have done! Red is a difficult color to make it look good. I bet no one told you that before you started! Job well done! Love,RAchel

I love with you did with Kylen's room. It's looking great. I'm glad to hear that he is enjoying baseball. I had to play that in PE and I absolutely hated it. I was always picked last. (I mean, I would have picked me last, but still...)

WOW! What a great color! I hope you'll be by on 5/2 to participate in the design time carnvial. Clearly, you have some great ideas in this area.

The red beats the gray!
