This weekend we painted an accent wall in the living room and put up a mantel! Blaine's dad is painting his house and asked us if we wanted his mantel and we said sure. At first we were just going to paint the mantel but then I decided that I wanted to paint the whole wall AND the mantel. The color isn't perfect is any of the pictures. It either look way too light or too dark. We got all of the painting done on Saturday then Blaine's dad came over on Sunday to help us put up the mantel.
After I moved everything and before we painted
The drop cloth is so fun and crinkly!
But they both soon got sent to the spare room.
I was in charge of edging
Blaine's job was to roll
Some of us don't need step stools. (How do you like Blaine's hair? I've taken over cutting his hair, I think I'm more nervous than he is!)
Ta da! (the wall looks REALLY light here)
Stood next to it for height reference
This picture does the best in showing the "true" color of the wall. We love it!
Painting is exhausting
