Painting, Painting, Painting, ...

So when you get down to it, when you paint a whole house - it takes a lot of work. I can't imagine having to do this without all the help that we have had from my family. And all the trim work - wow. It seems like it will never end. Mom has been a painting ninja with her awesome roller. I have been prepping in the corners and around the edges. The kitchen has been my least favorite to paint
because you have to be so careful going around all of the cabinets. I do love the colors that Patrick and I picked out. The house seems much more inviting and warm. The color before was a slight off white with some time of cool purple/blue tinge which always left me feeling chilled. That might be a desirable trait in a place that is so hot in the summer, but not how I want people to be greeted when they enter our home. I can't wait until we are finished because I am really tired of painting - and it is going to look wonderful!
