Well, it’s 12:30 p.m. and the first coat of paint is on our living room walls. I went with Behr paint, a color called Riviera Sand. It’s going to require 2 coats for even color, but so far I really like the outcome.
Over the weekend my mother talked me into stripping the dining room of it’s awful floral wallpaper (a project I intended to hold off for a couple years). So last night we went to work. Within 30 minutes I was pissed off. I hate wallpaper, and I hate stripping it even more. Thankfully, Denis chipped in and began working in the dining room, allowing me to begin painting the trim in the living room.
So now I’m taking a break for a bit to get some lunch, check emails, surf the net for a bit. Then I’ll go back and begin putting on the second coat and fixing the trim where the taupe paint dripped. Tedious, yes, but worth the effort to have a nice coordinated living room for the first time since I LIVED AT MY PARENT’S HOUSE.
