So here I sit again in a warm condo while I watch little white stuff coming out of the sky. . . can it be done yet??? This is now 6 weekends in a row!!! Hard to believe. . . so with all our time in our warm condo Nick and I decided to paint. . .

First we had to pick a color, we did that by mixing paint that we got at Walmart from matching the little 1 by 1 inch pieces of color, very difficult to tell, what it’s really going to look like, so we just painted, then one was too brown so we got a purple that really looked like blue to mix, then we got red to mix and etc. . . so by the time we were ready to actually paint there was a huge chunk of white that was this rambled mix of paint.

Our kitty was very helpful in getting into the paint smelling, wanting to taste and just being her curious self!! The squirt bottle (punishment) was always close at hand.

So finally, here is the finished product. . . WE started with the brown base then rag rolled the “purple which looked like blue” mixed with brown to make a better purple and some red. The red then looked like splatters of blood so Nick rag rolled brown over it again. So about 4 coates later we were done. It looks good, even with the orange couch and the black frames still stand out with our wedding pics. Yea, some color in our home.
