My niece kindly assisted with painting the kitchen last night. At just 2 1/2, I think she's got a great eye!
It made me sad to have to paint over it, but I plan on giving her a place at the back of the fridge to make-her-mark over the final coat. Of course, I will take pics!!
Samantha and I placed the first coat of paint on the kitchen walls last night and it looks great! (Thanks Sam!) Tonight I am putting a black-and-white tile floor down in the kitchen with Traci. Gotta love progress!
Oh, and I FINALLY got a couch! Actually, Samantha is loaning me a couch until I can find one of my own. It is a really special "Hollywood-era" piece in a goldish yellow that once sat in her grandparents home. It is quite a treasure and very meaningful knowing where it came from. It's got the lines and tufting that I was looking for and looks wonderful with my paint color. Now, I just need to figure out where to place it in the living room!
