Painting! Give me a cabinet to build, an electrical appliance to install…anything but painting! I don’t know what it is, but this is the one home project I can’t really get excited about.
But, luckily, we have some pretty good friends who helped us out a lot with painting our two biggest rooms: the dining room and the living room.
These were the first two rooms we actually painted (aside from the kitchen). And the walls aren’t normally that shiny, of course, they’re just wet in the picture.
The awful thing about painting in our house is that the rooms hadn’t been painted in years. So everything needed to be repainted. The ceilings, the walls, the trim, the baseboards, the window frames – everything! With six people over a couple of days, though, we fairly quickly knocked out the two biggest rooms (thanks, Neighs and Clarks!).
The new living room color is Cinderblock by Ralph Lauren, and the dining room is Ralph Lauren’s Bleeker.
Great, we’re done! But OH that fireplace…
