I got up early and cleaned the house, then decided to tackle the project of painting the dining room. But since it opens up to the foyer, I had to paint the foyer and a hallway, too. (Actually, the hallway became an afterthought, when I noticed how unfinished a certain corner looked without the paint.) I like the final result!
The old paint was a kind of violet, but the new is darker purple and a seafoam green that’s light and nearly blue. I’m loving the difference.
On Sunday morning, I was rushing to touch up a little section on the ladder when I jiggled the ladder and spilled my paint tray . . . everywhere! It’s a miracle it didn’t paint one of my dogs, since they always stay so close to me.
I had to laugh as I cleaned it up–I’ve always thought spilling paint has to be the worst painting mistake you can make . . . short of a fall that sends you to the hospital. So now I’ve made it! 🙂
