In our first house, all of the walls were once painted an off-white color, to help mask the smoke smell from the previous tenants. Our master bedroom was painted a nice red color (two of the walls anyway) and the boys' bedroom was painted with various "Little People" animals of all colors. I was quite proud of that room, even though some of the animals never got completely finished. Then the red room was re-painted white so we could sell the house.

"Princess Room" for the girls
In our current home, the office is painted in a blue and tan beach-like theme. Spencer's bedroom is painted in a mosaic-like pattern, with three alternating colors: green, blue, and teal. My sister-in-law painted the "toy room" a nice pink and dark brown pattern, but I did help with taping and edges so I'm counting it. The garage has been 95% painted (a few new sections of sheet rock and part of the ceiling are untouched ... yet) again in an plain white shade. And then I recently completed the master bedroom painting (pictures of which you will see in tomorrow's blog post). And there is more to come as soon as we decide what to do with our main level (the open floor plan makes it hard to know where to start or stop with different colors).

So what's the BEST part?!
Removing the tape!This is the big reveal and it is always gratifying!
Song Of The Day:
When I think about all this painting I realize there are "Too Many Walls" that have taken my attention over the years. Luckily this song by Cathy Dennis puts a positive sounding spin on the presence of lots of walls. Yeah, it's a cheesy tie in but you think of a better spot to use this great 80's song! :)
