When the husbands away...

Last week when I was cleaning out Carson's room I got the crazy idea I'm going to paint it. He had coloring on the walls, dirty hand prints, you name it. It was gross! This weekend Ryan went out of town, so I thought it was the perfect time to paint he would be out of my way, and not here to tell me how he thought I should do it. 
Covering up the beautiful artwork he made when he was 2. I love it, but it had to go. 
These I took before painting and rearranging. 
This is after. I still need to hang a couple things back up, yarn art his letters, and get a valance for his window over his bed. (It used to have a panel curtain there.) It feels so refreshed in there. I still eventually want new bedding and wall decor, but for now this will do. 

While I was on a roll of painting rooms I thought I should look for the paint that matched the living room to do a little touching up. I found it up in the attic, but it didn't look too good.

Yuck!! I called my fil to ask him what I should do, and he told me to take the paint and they could probably match it. The next morning I headed up to Sherwin Williams and got a gallon of paint. When I brought it home it was too light. 
Eek! Not a match at all. I went back and they tinted it just a little darker. 
We had a match. As soon as I got home Ryan had called saying he was on his way home. I freaked and got busy painting. He is so weird about painting. He wants it done professionally, so I never told him I was doing the living room or kitchen. I thought it would be fun to do it, and not say anything to see how long it takes him to notice it. 
Like new. 
I started on my entry hall, but ran out of time. And, he hasn't noticed. Seriously! This stands out. Men.
Kitchen wall. I didn't get a before shot because I was painting like a crazy woman. It also had black hand prints, water stains, and peeling paint. Ryan needs to hurry and notice so I can finish what I started. I did a little painting while he was in the shower, and when he went to bed. Sneaky.
This is my next project. I'm hosting thanksgiving this year so I'm trying to spruce up the house. It's a little addicting I must say.
