I spent the weekend painting the kid’s room. Now that we’ve rearranged it and they have their own space it was time to get some paint on the walls. It’s never been painted since we moved in. With them having bunk beds and lots of shelving there really wasn’t much wall space showing anyway.
But finally I bit the bullet and decided to get it done.
I’ve always loved bright, bold colours and I am a painting fiend. When we lived in Australia, I would send the King off to work with a beige kitchen and he’d arrive home to a blue one, no mess, no disruption, just blue walls. I’m good at that. I just move stuff to the middle of the room and paint. No fuss, no having stuff hanging around for days. Just get the job done.
So after rearranging their digs on Monday, I promised a new colour on the weekend.
Here’s the comparison pics. It really came out great.
After the move, Miss Gremlin described their digs. ‘Mum,’ She said ‘Grand Master D has the luxury office and I have the military barracks!’
While this is pretty true I did have to remind her that she had the queen bed.
And here’s how it looks with a new coat of paint…….or 3.
And here’s what we found behind the divider desk. I had to snap before I painted over it forever more. Little Miss Gremlin’s mitts.
It was a great days work, very satisfying and very happy children. Our house is finally completely painted.
