I spent some time painting at my brother and his fiance’s condo last weekend. They wanted their living room color scheme changed just a little bit.
Here’s what it started with
But here’s what it looked like in the end
(please excuse the little bit of red at the top. I wanted to move the TV out so I could wiggle myself back there, but after Adam took a business call he didn’t have enough time before they had to rush out to make a flight. I told him I wouldn’t be able to get it ALL done then, but he said no biggie. So I’ll get that last little sliver some other time)
It’s not too much of a difference. The blue is a more vibrant, slightly purple-y color, and the brown is a chocolate reddish shade. After two coats and allllllll the cut-ins because of the strange shape of the room it took much longer than I anticipated. But I got ‘er done. And the entire time I marveled jealously at how close they live to Home Depot – you can literally see one of the entrances to the store from their living room window. Lucky bastards.
