Home Improvement Project!!

Without many friends in the area saturday's are often filled with boredom. This past saturday was no different. In the midst of our boredom I became a driving force in throwing the landlord's rules out the door and undergoing a minor paint project in our bedroom. Before Ryan knew what hit him he was standing in the middle of home depot's paint center with me in all my glory among painting tools and samples. After a dozen unsuccessful calls to Mimi, I was forced to make an executive decision on the paint color because Ryan was voting for bright blue glitter paint:) forty-eight dollars later we found ourselves moving furniture and prepping the walls for a nice new coat of paint:) The moment I rolled on the first stroke of paint there was obviously no turning back.

Clothed in the Stephenson Family Reunion 200,000 shirt I managed to paint not only the wall but every part of my body, while Ryan managed to keep the paint on the wall and not himself:) It was alot of fun and took alot less time than we thought! 2 coats of paint did the job just fine. We managed to avoid boredom for atleast one saturday:) Here are some pics of the project.

OoOps, I was commenting on your blog under Aubry and then it sounded like he was a flamer so I had to delete it. I love the color! It's funny what a little paint can do. We have to paint our apartment this week too and I'm not too thrilled on picking colors. I'm not a very decisive person as we all know, so we'll see how it goes. We love you! Good job by the way!
