Minty Fresh!

I wasn't planning on doing much today, my throat is still sore and dry, and the "get up and go" is gone, BUT my SIL called and wanted to help paint one of the rooms at the "new" old house. So I ended up bringing lots of liquids and talked myself into energy... If I were by myself doing the painting I would have thrown in the towel and only worked on one wall. We actually painted one entire room, minus the trim and closets, which require a different paint color and type. I chose a very pale mint green for the walls. The color sample looks almost white with a hint of green. After we painted the entire room my SIL says "It looks like tooth paste!" This is one of those wall colors that changes with the time of day. When the first wall was painted it looked more on the white side, but as the day progressed it looked more like mint flavored Crest.... I hope I can live with that... So, for whatever it's worth, painting was my workout today....

I always get a good workout from painting. I'm sure the green paint looks great. I love green walls! When you start filling up the room with furnitures and decorations, the mintiness may not be as noticeable.

Chantal,
Today it looked less intense, and with furniture it will change things, I'm sure. :) I was tired of white and wanted to throw a little color into the mix.
