paint du jour
my husband did something with my iphoto, so i can't post a picture today. it is too bad because things are really happening around here. last night i started painting my old pottery barn malabar chairs. i have been thinking about this project for a long time, and i admit i am a little nervous, but i'm diving in. i also bought four quarts of paint from martha stewart's sherwin williams collection yesterday. i have painted a strip in every room to be considered. i am changing my bedroom, my bathroom, the laundry room and my dining room. everything but the dining room is still builder beige, so i am excited to get some fun cheery colors on the walls. the dining room, well, this will be the third color since we have lived here (just over a year). it is my husband's idea this time, he wants it to be carolina blue. we are hokies, but even he knows better than to paint it orange or maroon. i am getting nervous that my whole house is turning blue. i just can't help it, what else is there? and now my husband seems to have caught the blue bug. nothing is safe here.
