Painting, painting and more painting


BEFORE/AFTER



I know I posted about putting my in-laws to work while they were here on vacation. I am very thankful they were here to start a project that we have been putting off for a long time. They just lit the fire under our rears to get started. After we had the living room, kitchen, and hallway painted, we decided why stop now. I have had so many projects to paint and never had the motivation to actually paint them until the last week or so. I painted a dresser I bought for Lucy's room over a year ago, an entertainment given to us by the Shelley's before they moved back in March and finally decided to get guttsy and paint our mantel over the fireplace. It is so fun and I am amazed at what a new coat of paint can do to anything.
