I believe in miracles

I won't even tell you how long I thought it was going to take me to paint Jet's room. It's embarrassing.

This was Jet's room at 8:15 this morning:





Eight hours, two trips to Home Depot, two trips to my parents' house, and one lunch with Knight later, this is what we have:
I can hear you now. "Damsel, did you get any paint on the walls?"

Why, yes...

Yes, I did...


I'm really happy with the results. It's a fabulous color. I hope Jet likes it, too!

I'll admit that, at about 2:00, my post was going to read, "If I ever say that I want to paint a room again, I give permission to anyone reading this post to come over and slap me silly on a daily basis until I come to my senses" among other unpleasant things.

My body may agree with this sentiment, but I'm pretty proud of myself for getting it done.

I have some great ideas for decorating. I'll post more pics tomorrow after I get the touchups done, the furniture back in, and the stuff on the walls. For now, I'm off to get Jet and meet my Dad and Knight for Mexican food at my favorite restaurant. Yay!

That's a gorgeous color - great job! I haven't been a fan of colored walls, but seeing your results makes me feel a bit more adventurous.

It felt a bit like stepping off a cliff -- as in "I really hope I like this but it isn't permanent if I don't". I'm really glad I did it!

It's a gorgeous colour.

I really love painting walls. Weird, I know, but I find it relaxing. The last time I did it, Diva Girl was nearly 5, and I let her both pick out the colour--a deep, vibrant pink that I ended up happy with, but initially feared would dry the same Pepto Bismol shade as it was when it went on--and help with the actual painting. I figured the odd streaky spot was worth the memories.
