We are now 18 months away from our lease's end and we finally decided to do something about the walls. While we painted what was supposed to be JR's room - it never really became her room and although her clothes, books and art supplies are kept there, it is still "the office" - almost 3 years ago, we never really bothered with the other walls. We figured we would just make do. But with so much time still left for us in this four-square enclosure and with JR and I spending a lot of our time in it, we bit the bullet.
And, for the past two days while JR napped, I painted. Below is the result. While it is not perfect, it is better than what we had to start with. And while I would certainly have preferred more even streaks, better coverage, and straighter edges, I will settle having a couple of non-yellow walls. We are living in color again!
