this weekend i learned that painting is the worst

I learned some lessons this weekend. On Friday, we paid to have our living room painted. I felt guilty paying someone to do something we technically could have done ourselves. But she moved the furniture, puttied all the holes, washed the walls and painted the walls, ceiling and trim. So worth it. And I'm so much happier to be free of our previously pee yellow colored walls. Here are some after photos - ...more
