Maybe my poor painting abilities stem from my coloring book days and the fact that I wasn't very good at staying in the lines? Or it could possibily be the fact that i almost passed out twice while painting my room this past weekend. Yes ladies and gents, i painted my room. My small 8 x 10 hole has now been transformed. Ok, not really - but to me is looks so much better. My walls were a light tan color that actually looked peach in some light. I was not a fan. However, for the past year and a half I have just been too lazy to do anything about it.
That is until my roommate Brooke painted her room and I decided to copy. I should have taken an actual before and after picture, but of course i forgot to take a picture before I moved everything.
I bought this nifty tape gun that made taping my room a breeze. Took me 30 minutes max to tape my entire room. Good thing i wasn't trying to impress someone in my paint clothes - because that sure wasn't going to happen when I looked like this!
Ok, so my walls look great - but my ceiling is another story. I probably got like 10 paint spots all over the ceiling, PLUS, when i took the tape off, some of the ceiling came with it. Shown in the big spot in the following picture:
I hung drapes and used my manly power tools to drill in the rods. Who needs a man when you have a power drill all your own?
My room has come together nicely. Or so I think.
