I had the day off today (since I work the weekend) and after visiting homearama a few weeks ago I had been thinking about sprucing up the house a bit. I naturally turn to painting 1) because almost every wall in our house is a neutral tan color, and 2) because paint is easy, cheap and if you don't like it you can always paint over it!
First C and I made a trip or two to Home Depot for paint samples and then once we narrowed it down to a color we went back and a purchased small sample of that color and painted a block on the wall.
Next we have before photos, including the "tester" block of new color I painted on the wall.
After painting the front wall I think I will probably paint the neighboring wall seen in this photo as well.
From another angle:
Also, given that Tony and I have been married for 5 years (as of July 21st) I thought I would post a few pics from our wonderful vacation we took to Mexico. We had a great time, and even got bumped up to first class on our way to and from Mexico!! Can't believe we have already been married 5 years! Love you babe!
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
