I couldn't do it.


One pinkish room is enough!

I mixed up my Pink Swirl and my creamy white  and took a swipe.   :{  I'm not feeling the luv!

Then I remembered the left over paint from the sitting and dining rooms.  If I mixed them together...

 I do like the colour but this is NOT a good quality paint. The difference between good paint and awful is the drop cloth.  Quality paint goes where it is supposed to and stays there.  Hence the need for the drop cloth and wet rag is negligible.  This less than quality paint combines primer and paint and is the consistency of water.  :(   My experience with contractors was not a happy one which is why I am now painting!  To be fair I did pick up a few tips. Difficult area- buy closest spray paint and 'give 'er'!!!   But I will not be intimidated by "we are the experts and so..."  never again.  Never  ;^)

My well luved blanket box has no other place to live except in the guest room.  I think the yellow is a much better fit.  So I embraced the price factor, the watery paint, dragged my drop cloth along, dabbed with a wet rag, and focused on the colour.  :]

Notice the duvet cover draped over the foot board.  I couldn't wait to try it and it just might make a curtain! 

Now for the trim.  I wish I didn't have to do it!  ;^)

Painting is such a thankless job. I enjoy the finished rooms. The prep and actual painting...not so much. Get-er-done dear...
