So, we've been painting at our house. Here are some things I've learned about painting:
*I do not like painting
*The color on the paint chip never looks like you think it will
*Steve does not like painting
*You will not like color you chose
*Never paint your walls with flat paint--It is impossible to clean. Our whole house was painted in flat paint when we moved in. It also kind of gives you the willies when you touch it or rub it.

Here's proof that we did the work ourselves, if you can't already tell by looking at the paint job:)

Now that Mitchell is 5 months old, his room is finally done! Even though it didn't turn out quite like I imagined, it is now no longer flat and its actually kind of cute, if I do say so myself.

Here's the best part of the room...adorable sleeping baby!
We are still working on Miranda's room. We have part of it pink, but she now says she wants it seafoam green--I don't think so!
