What did you paint today? I painted yesterday - all of our closet doors and a table. My legs were sooooore today. (I had them laid out on the driveway since we didn't have enough sawhorses, LOL)

  • My mom and dads kitchen actually. When they moved into their new house, it was this really dark hunter green with a white chair rail. My mom wanted something light and airy. Then she bought this really gorgeous lighthouse painting that she wanted to incorporate into the kitchen.

    So this weekend, I went out and bought a really light sand color for the top of the walls and a light cadet blue for the bottom and I've been painting for the last two days. I'm beat.

    Yesterday was priming over that dark green (it took several coats to even start to cover it) and then today was painting the wall the actual colors. Tomorrow is touch up and trim.

    Wow, sorry for the novel lol.

  • painting is tiring! I bet it will look great when you're all done, though!

  • My legs and back are killing me lol. Standing on hard tile floor for so long really kills.

    I'll be posting before and after pics in my blog in the next couple of days, if you are interested :) It already looks better and brighter, imo.

    What kind of table did you paint?

  • I painted an end table - we've had it sitting around for quite awhile, it has a great shape but was kind of an ugly pine color and was pretty beat up.
