What’s a girl to do while the husband is out of town for a long weekend? Why, paint the guest room, of course! (Secretly. Without him knowing.) Here’s a before picture for you (please, ignore the mess on the bed. That’s what happens when I don’t clean up before painting and everything from the floor & walls ends up on the bed). The best I can describe the color before was roughly Benjamin Moore’s Grant Beige but very very flat paint.
I went with my gut and bought two gallons of Martha Stewart’s Fledgling. Here’s a during shot that really shows just how much lighter the Fledgling color is!
This is the best “after” shot I can get with the bed in the middle of the room, so once I arrange all of the furniture, I’ll take some better pictures.
But hooray for painting! And sweet friends that bring over ladders for short kids like me.
And a big hip hip hooray for cookies from the package.
Yep, that’s is what this girl does while the husband is away…
