Back to painting...

Once again, I have been trying to make this house look a bit more like our house. I found this great color that I really wanted to paint somewhere in my house, but I hadn't decided exactly where. I decided to paint our dining/living room area in this great orange/red color.

Before:

After:

Someday we will also have great couches or a big reading chair rather than a white futon, but one thing at a time I guess.

After I finished completely painting both walls (and being so careful that my line was perfectly straight) Ian tells me that he would really like it if the wall that is white was also orange. I told him that would be fine, but that he would have to do all the edging this time. That takes forever!!!

Yes, I used blue tape, but the it is imperfect and my husband hates when he can see mistakes so I had to go back with a tiny paintbrush and paint a perfect line on the ceiling and corners. Now he wants to paint the wall that I was so careful about to make that perfect wall. Oh well. I guess he is helping me with my patience...

It looks so modern! I feel your painting woes, and I did the same thing in my house with little craft paint brushes, touching up everywhere. I now HATE painting and refuse to do it for a long time! Your house is looking great!
