The project has begun!
I have long wanted to paint our living room (it is currently the flat ivory paint put on by the builders -- yuck! -- see the 'before' picture to the left), but I've just never gotten around to it. Well, there's no turning back now -- I've started cutting in all the way around, so I have to finish it! I am a terrible procrastinator, so I work much better under a deadline -- and I need to have this done before we put our Christmas tree up...which is the day after Thanksgiving. Actually, I plan to have it done much sooner than that, because I can't stand the mess that the living room is right now! Here is my plug for Sherwin Williams paint -- this is the first time that I've used it and I am very impressed. It goes on beautifully and with hardly any mess (which is saying a lot with me painting!). The only problem is that they did not include a warning on the label saying that if, while painting, you stand on the entertainment center and then lose your balance and fall off backwards, it could really hurt. Guess how I figured that out!!!
