E finally wore her outfit I made forever ago that hasn't been on her body yet.
Today I am taking down all the "stuff" in my dining area so hopefully, it will get painted tomorrow. I'm supposed to tape off the trim so Hubby can paint the ceiling first. It's a taupe color (Desert Sand, I think) and he's painting it white. Then, hopefully he can paint my dining room red. There's only one problem, well two, actually.
1. The very nice weatherman (Hi Mike!) is calling for more winter weather tonight. UGH! I love my kids, but I DO NOT want them to be home tomorrow. We can't paint with four kids running around the house, not even to mention that I have a date tomorrow night with my Hubby for early Valentine's Day and I will NOT be happy if I have to miss it.
2. I CANNOT find a decent red. CANNOT! Everything looks pink. I know the people at Lowe's are sick of me. I keep buying the little sample cans just so I can come home and put a big ole splotch on my wall and it ends up PINK! Three coats and it's still pink! UGH! Why can't I find the right shade? Becca over at Adventures in Decorating used RL Stadium Red and it turned out beautiful. Maybe I'll run to Home Depot and try that. Anybody have any other suggestions?
Isn't that color gorgeous?
Okay, I'm off to start taping. Have I mentioned that I HATE to paint?
