The Great Painting Project

We decided that now would be a good time to paint a few rooms/walls in our new home (before any furniture arrives). After many trips to the paint sample aisle of Home Depot, we decided to paint the kitchen a pretty red color called "currant jam" and the baby's room a soothing blue called "sonata" (better for a boy than the pink that was in there). We also decided to paint 2 accent walls in our living room and master bedroom "sage green". Here are some before and after shots (actually, we are still working on the kitchen - it is needing several coats). Oh, before anyone fusses at me, I Missy do solemnly vow that I did not pick up a single paint brush nor climb any ladders. My role in this project was simply to choose colors and locations. Jason did a great job being in charge of the painting and we owe many thanks to the many friends that helped with the decision making and painting process!
