Painting!

After a year of living in our place we finally decided to paint! If it hadn't been for TJ & Alan we never would have gotten through. Alan did all the trim work on the ceiling by hand! We worked from 10am-2am and finally got it done. However, we did have our share of paint issues. We wanted to paint the kitchen yellow but it ended up looking sunshine yellow, instead of more brown/gold so we just did the kitchen green, which meant that we had to go back and get more green paint. Josh got the right color but for some reason it wasn't the right shade. So, after 5 hours at 3 different Home Depots we finally ended up with the right shade to finish the 2nd coat! We only did the downstairs, so next we have to tackle the upstairs....but I'm a bit burned out on painting so we'll have a little while before that happens.
