Mission: Accomplished

For a girl who loathes the process of painting as much as I do, the finished result makes me downright giddy.  This was the first time I had painted entirely without Jeramie's help and I almost threw in the towel when I realized I'd have to climb a ladder.  I did it, though, and I was pretty darn proud of myself by the time Jeramie got home Thursday evening.

I really enjoy what a fresh coat of paint can do for the overall feel of the house.  Even though our bathroom is currently a wreck, the upstairs just feels clean thanks to a shop vac and paintbrush.  And, don't tell anyone, but I secretly enjoy the smell of paint.  And gasoline.  But that's neither here nor there.

I'll leave you with some photos, and then I need to go clean everything else that's been neglected over the past two days.  Ethan comes home tomorrow and - let's face it - even at 30 years old, I still feel the need to clean my room before my Mama sees it.

Happy Saturday, y'all!

Before - YIKES!

Progress...

After - SUCCESS!

That looks awesome! You have totally inspired me! :) Our's is painted, but we sure need to clean underneath it! I also wish ours was upstairs like it looks like yours is... that would be nice! We are always hauling laundry up and down. Makes me hate it even more! :P Lol.

It looks great and very "happy" in there! It's amazing what a litle paint can do.

Your comment on the smell of paint and gasoline made me giggle. That is so me. I enjoy odd smells too.
