Today I bid farewell to the purple-blue wall. It was a fine lesson in encouraging my young child of six to express his own brand of creativity (and my lesson on not giving him full rein of the color spectrum to do it). Luckily he is now 19 and has refined his choice of color to...red, just red.
This wall was my nemesis. It required two coats of primer and two coats of paint to cover. The lighting is very bright (there's only bare bulbs in here right now). So it's coming along...slowly. I have a lot more to do but seeing progress each day keeps me going.

I know you're probably thinking this room isn't going to be done until next year, but everyday a little is done and I'm feeling very good about it. *thinking positive, thinking positive, thinking positive*.
