Ok kids, the painting has finally begun... Of course, not without making an emergency run to my new 2nd home/ the DIY vortex/ Home Depot at 7.30am this morning. Because despite spending an entire hour and half contemplating every shade of beige, tan and brown known to man, I still managed to walk out with a color that looked like barf when I did my stripe pre-test (thank you Joan for the pre-test suggestion). SIGH.
Fingers crossed, it will all blend together from here on in. Get it, "blend"??? Ha.
