Extreme Makeover -- Day Two!

I am just beat!! We spent the whole day looking at this:

I wish you could see this colour IRL. It is the most beautiful deep aqua-green, and it is going to look fabulous with the rest of the room when it is complete.

We began at 9 am sharp and painted until 2:30. Clean-up and just enough time to post the progress before Renee comes home from school. My mom is such a sweetheart -- she spent the whole day painting with me. My DD is lucky to have such a super grandma. :)

The good news was Home Depot messed up -- but it worked! I asked for a 25% tinted primer, because we were covering a different tone. But they tinted it 100%...so we only needed one coat of primer and one coat of paint to cover the walls.

Now comes the assembly -- which, if we are lucky, will start tonight. Baseboards, closet organizer, and blinds.

Halfway there!!
