Painting ~

My granddaughter and I have been painting her room - it's been interesting (as you can tell by the paint can) and quite messy but we are having fun doing this project together. She has turned out to be a good little painter. We are done with the first coat . . . tomorrow we will put on the second coat . . . it's looking great  . . .  the room was in great need of painting and I think I was well over the sage green that has been on the walls for over six years now. We went with a soft white which to many is boring but to us, it's refreshing and my granddaughter wants to paint some sort of design on one wall . . . it's only paint right!?!


  1. Gini - Like you said, it is only paint. So if she does it and you hate it, you can always paint over it again without too much expense.

    I've always dreamed of painting a room but since I've always lived in apartments, I've never had the chance. One of these days.

  2. Elyse, exactly, I wanted her to feel she had a part in this and she really did well. I expected a big mess but instead, she was very careful and detailed. It's been a very good experience for both of us - who would have thought painting a room produced some grandma/granddaughter quality time and fun! Maybe we will get the whole house painted now!
