Many years ago, I swore off painting for the rest of my life. I had painted the entire interior of my condo and Dan’s townhome and was done. When we built our new house, we paid the builders to paint it, but they could only paint every wall the same color. We picked a light grey color for all the walls and called it a day. This past summer, we replaced our master bedroom furniture and bedding and I thought, “hmmm…it might be nice to paint an accent wall in here, too.” When my mom came to visit at the end of 2017, it provided the perfect (and probably only) opportunity to paint that accent wall.
Vivian helped me buy the paint and she helped us paint the wall. I was worried that allowing a 3-year-old to paint a wall would be a disaster, but she actually did very well.
We are very happy with the final result. The project only took one day to complete and it also gave me an opportunity to thoroughly vacuum and clean the baseboards behind the bed, which, if you know me, will help me to sleep much better at night!
