2 days and 3 coats of paint later...

Tadaaaa...


I'm finally finished painting the living room. It took 2 days and 3 (in some places 4) coats of paint to cover the yellow and brown/gray orignial paint. The new colors are tan and white. I learned some lessons in painting, this being my first time painting a big room. The main lesson learned: Always use primer, no matter what the guy at Wal-Mart tells you! I was fortunate to have Lo come over the first day and help paint the first coats. The rest I finished up yesterday. I'm glad to have it done and I think it looks much better. I will post more pics of our place once we get it decorated!

looks good!!! i always leave the painting up to damon. our house we sold we had painted every room in colors we liked and the guy who bought it re-painted which is understandable because he probably did not like our colors, but... he painted everything white. in other words all that hard work for nuttin'!
