Good-bye to the Horrible, Terrible Pink Paint


So, the Fall Open House is over,
just over,
like 14 hours over
and
I have always hated
that
horrible, terrible pink paint. 
 
I picked it out,
it was supposed to be a lovely shade of beige
soon 12 years ago
when the addition was built.
 
I should have repainted it right away.
But, I didn't.
 
For almost 12 years I have seriously disliked the color of that room.
 
Why did I wait so long to repaint?
While all my décor was scattered everywhere,
I decided it was time to paint!
I mean, why put it back just to move it again.
Perfect Timing.

See that pink paint on the right side?

You see, it is a big job.
Starts at the kitchen, through the family room
up the stairs
and
into my paint room.
 
And JWS...he hates things tore up.
 
So, I am painting a section and putting it back.

The things I do to keep that man calm.
The kitchen was finished yesterday
Part of the family room is done...
and
I ran out of paint.
 
So,
I am off to the paint store before work today
so I can make more progress tonight!

This was a before
and
yes, I painted over that hand-painted border.
Am I going to replace it?
 
I don't think so,
I am liking the clean, uncluttered look!

And
LOVING
every inch of pink that disappears!

I hate painting but it always looks so nice when you're done. Well that is assuming that you like the color you end up with :)
