Wild Weekend Painting

There was a time when a weekend with the entire house to myself would mean I'd do something fun. When I learned that my sister was taking my daughter, and dad away for the weekend, I made a list of projects I wanted to get done. Of that list, I only got paint the living room finished.

I fell in love with a color from the HGTV line at lowes. unfortunately, they require you to mix it with the HGTV paint. I usually love lowes paint. It goes on with one coat but this brand was horribly watery. 2 complete coats and a few spot painting later and I think I am finished. There are still spots that don't have coverage like I wanted but I have to live with it.

I listened to Pandora while I painted and I promise you I head the same songs about 20 times. Is it just me or is the song take your time, the nicest way to ask for a one night stand?

I tried to get the dogs to help. I think they thought I mean lay around and pretend to be asleep.

Anyway, Here is the before of the living room
Here is the after

    That's a great color! I mean, I'm a guy, and I don't know crap about painting or style, but I think it looks better. So there's that.

    And I gave up on Pandora a long time ago. Here's the same song over and over again, plus a bunch of other songs that aren't anything like what you asked for and are terrible.

  2. I'm ok with listening to the same 5 songs over and over again, so I'm good with Pandora. I do hate their ads though. They're so loud! I like the yellow - it looks warmer and more cozy.

  3. I think I am going to have to. It drove me crazy and i hated I have to tell them I'm still listening

  4. It looks brighter which is way better. It felt so dark before. I was listening to today's hits which is apparently only 10 songs

  5. I'm a big fan of the yellow, I just wish the quality of the paint had been better. I don't mind listening to the same sings if i like all the songs, sadly that was not the case.

  6. I really like the color, but that's so annoying that the paint gave such lousy coverage.

  8. Thanks. I hate painting, but love changing the colors of a room. I wish I could afford a painter to come do it all for me.
