It Was Just A Short Trip Through Lowe's . .

I've been thinking about doing some painting lately, you know, to freshen things up at home. Nothing like some fresh paint now and then. There are some problems, however.

The first problem is choosing the color. See, I want to get it right the first time so I don't have to go back to the store for a re-mix and come back home and repaint the section I started. So I agonize over color choice for a long time! The other problem is that I rent and therefore would have to repaint when I move. Which may be next summer, and while I don't hate painting, I really don't want to do it again that soon!

The next problem(s) is/are my daughters. I want to paint the main living area. They want to paint their rooms as well. If we go that far, I may as well paint my room, too! I don't want to do that much painting (yes, they will help) because it's that much more to re-paint before moving. Maybe we could do accent walls . . .

The last problem is . . . . once the paint is on the walls, the rest of everything will look 'unfresh' and I'll want to re-decorate! That, my friends, becomes costly and time consuming! That's not even factoring in the carpet (!!!) which I will certainly want to cover with a decorative rug to go with the fresh paint.

Funny how a short trip through Lowe's turns into a major road trip through my home!

That's why I don't paint. I need new furniture terribly and if I paint, that will look worse than it already does.

Pick colors that go with everything else!

Personally, I can't stand boring white walls. Take a big breath and just do it! don't worry about the chain reaction. :)

I love the graph!!! soooo true. Speaking as a professional painter, I don't clean the brushes I use for wall color. I include them in the cost of the job. One use and they are history.
