Week #3: Just paint it

Week #3 of Home decorating projects "Get Them Done" starts now!  In weeks one we learned how to accessorize that giant empty wall using things we already have.  I also shared a super simple way to hang your wall (without even measuring!). See that post HERE

Week #1 came to a close with a customer story and reveal of her new gallery wall.....You can see that full post HERE

Then in week #2, (Old Furniture, New Purpose) I shared ways you can use your old furniture and totally freshen it up by making simple changes, like I did with this dresser...

From this: 

To this....

And now for week #3.....

Painting!

Have you ever started painting a room and never finished?  Ever dreaded starting?  I'll admit that I have left patches of unfinished wall sit for a year (or more!) before finally tackling them....

That patch even made it to my photo shoot last year.......ug! Totally forgot about it....thankfully it isn't too notice-able! 

It was a big celebration around here when it was completed.... 

We're only human.  We all need encouragement, and that's why I created this home project series. (I also love interior design, and helping you find ways to make your home one you love). 

How about a little inspiration to help jump start our wall painting endeavors...

Wall on left:  Smooth Stone (Sherwin Williams). Wall on right: Ultra White (Behr) & Hale Navy (Benjamin Moore).  Since our area doesn't have a Ben Moore, I had the paint color matched to Hale Navy at Sherwin Williams.

Just Paint it! 

Painting  our walls can be fun, too.  Though it's not all fun and games while you're taping off all that trim, breaking a sweat to reach that far corner, or running out of paint mid-project, I think we can all agree that the result in the end makes us happy.  And that's what your home should do for you!

My hope is that the home projects I share help cultivate your relationship with your home.  Like a plant, you have to care for it, and love it.  Then it becomes beautiful; something YOU created and something to be proud of!

Here's to getting those wall painting projects DONE! 

Week four's topic (the final week of this series) is yet to be determined....any ideas you have are welcome!!!
