a painted house

We decided to have our interior painted! It looks so nice. I miss the brightness of the white walls, but now that it's painted, it feels like a "grown up" home. It's kind of hard to explain, but if you've ever done it, you understand!

We aren't painters. So many people are--I think most of my friends--LOVE to paint and do fun projects like that. Not I. It is a pain. I guess if I didn't have kids under foot and I could take my time, maybe I'd like it more, but right now it sounds like torture to have such a daunting task. Plus we have HUGE vaulted ceilings, and that would be even more challenging. So, last May (2007), we got a quote, and it was actually a rather reasonable price, but decided to afford it finally when we heard about the tax$$ rebate. It really was worth having someone paint it--I feel like I have a new home! AND--Thanks kids for being alive so we can have $$ to paint the walls that you've made nice and dirty!
(the main color is a goldy-tan & a few accent walls/areas were the green you see)

It looks soooo nice! And I agree, have someone else do the painting for you! I've done it way too many times and always wish that I would've just paid someone to do it for me.

Sara - the colors are beautiful, very warm, soft, and soothing - just like a real "grown up" house!
