So remember this morning when I mentioned that whole living room revamping thing?
Well, it appears as if we were a little more antsy than we realized to get the ball rolling! Earlier today, the two of us headed to Home Depot, stocked on some paint, some new floor trim, and some accessories, and got right to work on our new project.
When we first moved in to this house, we had painted the walls but it ended up being much lighter of a color than we expected. We were too annoyed at the time to go back and paint over it, so we’ve just dealt with it for the past few years…but not anymore!
We moved all the furniture away from the walls and out of the room, cleared the walls of their frames, and started taping.
Ughhh, I cannot STAND taping. Talk about a tedious task.
As usual, Cody wasn’t quite sure what to make of the whole situation, so he’s been creeping around all day.
Or watching the chipmunks out in the yard.
Of course, if I’m going to have a day full of painting, there’s got to be a little wine involved.
Alright, there doesn’t have to be wine involved, but it definitely makes the process more bearable. You see, painting just isn’t really my thing. BUT, I love the end result, so, ya know. I deal.
Once we had the first coat on all four walls, we decided to take a quick break for dinner, which consisted of a bunch of leftovers and randomness from the fridge.
For me, that meant a leftover piece of my summer squash galette, some leftover zucchini & squash, a handful of garden cherry tomatoes, and a few slices of rolled up deli buffalo chicken.
Now that I’m finished with that (and with writing this post!), it’s about time to get back to work…here’s a little preview for ya so far.
It’s looking SO good – I am loving the colors we picked out earlier (the pic definitely does not do it justice) and can’t wait to see the final product. Eeeek!
Hope everyone’s weekend is winding down nicely and that you all had a great one!
