The Painted Lady

Monday, July 11, 2011

Our guest bedroom needed new paint desperately! When we bought our home, only then did we realize the previous owners painted the room around their existing furniture. wHaT?! Crazy right! Needless to say, this was one of our first projects that needed to be completed pronto.
So I took to the walls! I taped, spackled, sanded, wiped down, and rolled a least a gallon or two of paint! My dad, a contractor, was very impressed to hear I did this all on my own, which made painting the bedroom even more rewarding!

 It took me close to 5 hours to finish, but I am very proud of myself for getting the job done! Chris was also happy/impressed, probably because this meant he didn't have to do it!

Don't you love it! The color is called "tropical tan" and I think it goes great with our white wicker bedroom furniture. Now that this room is done its onto the next!!

(please excuse the crappyness of the pics, but you get the idea ;)
