I need to mention that I decided to do this Halloween weekend. The same weekend we planned Waylon's birthday party. Sometimes I really wonder about my thinking process. Who does DIY projects with 3 little turds running around? Especially ones who "LLLOOOVVEE to paint"! "Please, mommy, please, I will be weeaalll careful." Every 10 seconds.
Don't be fooled. He maybe did 30 minutes of the painting. I did everything else. The taping, the priming (beautiful isn't it), the mixing, etc. He did help clean up after though and kept the turds out of my hair for a while. When I saw that primer I was almost in tears. When I started the first coat one about fell from my eyes. I HATE painting. I am a "want to get crap done" kind of girl and don't have patience for all the nitty gritty details that take so much time to do the thing perfectly. I am so impatient.
Some day I would like to put up some Wainscoting and some bigger pictures on the wall. If you want to see my dreams check out my board for the house on Pinterest. That site is going to ruin me and my finances even if I do find cheap ways of doing things! Redoing the trim is something we will want to do soon!
I think I might have been in denial for the last couple years on just how bad it looked.
But these? These are pretty much "knock your socks off" with my little ham and his many faces.
