Beginning the process of painting our house

The whole house is white. It could be worse I guess. When we were looking at houses we saw one that had pastels all over the house done with faux finishing. In every room. So at least white gives us a blank canvas. We aren't in love with painting, but it is kinda fun. Mostly it is my project. Apparently, Kyle would rather let me do the bulk of it than risk making a mistake and facing my wrath. Hmmmm. That's ok. I enjoy it. I especially enjoy that we don't have to remove painted over wallpaper borders, or any other wallpaper. Ugh. So, without further is the almost done (it's done now, but I don't have pics) master bathroom. The window in the bathroom is frosted and the way the light comes through at different times of day makes the wall color change all the time.

This first is what it looks like a lot, mostly blue. There is grey stone tile on the floor and bath surround and it is a good complement.

And this color is more what I was going for. But it's all good. I like it!

Now the kids are excited to get their rooms painted. Ben wants black, Johnny wants bright green and Courtney wants polka dots. We'll see what actually happens!

Looks good! I've been feeling the "painting bug" lately. I haven't painted any walls in about 1 1/2 years.
