Painting is… uhm… fun?

So today I painted 2 of the walls in my room… Now that I am done (well, except for the places where I need to put a second layer of white on the molding because I got blue paint on them) I think it’s great. But while the sun was beating on me and in my face while I was trying to unstick my feet from the plastic and my arm hurt and half of my body was blue… yeah it was fun lol I made a mess of myself and my clothes but the walls are a solid color and there is no paint on the carpet.

Success!

I got “bird’s egg blue” paint (oddly enough, the type of paint was eggshell.. hmmm! it’s the halfway between flat and satin I guess) and the other walls are… cream. With white molding. It all matches my bed! I have the Hedda Band bedspread from IKEA and so the blue is the same as the lightest blue on the bed… sort of. Close match anyway. And so my bed has dark blue sheets and bedskirt and decorative pillow, and I have a cream chair (also from IKEA, I can’t seem to find it on the website though) and a little red dot rug (Ringum, also from IKEA.. like I shop anywhere else!!), cause well, there’s red dots on the bedspread! I think now that the wall with the window has color, I can just get white curtains and not worry about it being boring. My neighbor can see me right now.

So now I need to figure out where to put all this stuff that’s on my bed, cause I’d kind of like to sleep tonight.

    That color blue is supposed to be very calming.  That’s good.  You need some calming :)

    Looks pretty good! Painting is always fun if you do it with friends and have pizza!

    That’s a good color.  I can empathize with getting things off the bed for sleep, after building furniture all day my bed was covered in stuff as well…
