Faux Painted Walls

Please do not ask Bruce or Amanda just how many trips I made to Lowe's and Home Depot. Please do not look in the box of painting tools to count just how many mixed samples of paint I purchased. And I promise I will not ask your opinion on yet another color sample . . . cause I've finally decided and the painting is complete!!!!! Do I hear angels singing the Hallelujah Chorus?

The painting part was really fun, it was just a tad frustrating knowing what color and technique I wanted and not finding it in a paint can with my name on it and a full color brochure with foolproof instructions written in detail waiting for me.

And the paint people giving me contradicting info did not simplify the process.

And then there was the little detail that the new furniture arrived in a different finish than I had envisioned. (It only took about a week for my brain to overcome that glitch)

And when you give a mouse a cookie you have to buy a new bedspread. (tee-hee) And six fun pillows to complete the new fashion statement.

Last item needed are curtains. My wallet and hubby need a reprieve, so that will come later.

For next time I have learned a lesson- When deciding on what color to paint a room go to every paint store you know of and pick up one of EVERY one of those paint chip cards. It will save immensely on time and gas.
