Baseboard Update #5

The Office is done! Not only the baseboards, but the WHOLE ROOM is painted! Yes, I'm a bit of an overachiever at times, but that's okay!  I figured that if all the furniture is pulled away from the walls, I might as well paint it all at once. The walls have been something I've always to change, but just never got around to it ... I had the paint all ready to go, just had to put it up on the walls.  Opportunity knocked and here you go!  No more faux finished green walls!!  YAY! I had forgotten to take a before shot, so I had to get creative and go in between the wall and furniture {Filthy!!!  apparently the maid has missed this area!!  humph ... moi!} Even though it's not the very same … [Read more...]

Painting Baseboards … A BIG job!

I don't know what I've done! Well, I do, but I've bit off a huge chunk.  A BIG JOB!!!
