There’s nothing like a freshly-painted house — whether you’ve just moved into it or have recently had the painters out to give your house an overhaul. In the days and weeks afterward, however, life happens. The delivery guys bump your new couch into the wall as they bring it around the corner. Your daughter runs down the hallway, scratching her princess fairy wand all the way down the wall until she reaches her bedroom. Meanwhile, your son has taken to bouncing his soccer ball off the wall in his bedroom and it’s left a dull mark.
Ideas and Inspiration
Hello again! My last diary entry was all about finding a new paint color. Today, it’s all about deciding on a paint color scheme.
We all have projects. Some small, some large. I thought I would share my journey as I tackle some of my home improvement projects. I hope you’ll start sharing yours as well. First up, my adventures in becoming an empty nester.
