foil dresser in my craft room) - well, on a dresser it looks great - on a ceiling, not so much... I wan't loving it - -
So then I thought I'd go bold and use green, because I plan to have green accents in the room. Well, I just mixed some discarded paint and ended up with Olive green instead of a lime-apple green like I envisioned, plus it really overpowered the room (if you're my facebook fan, you've seen this already) - - it was also a no-go - - a whole morning of painting, wasted.
Third time was a charm. I just painted it the gray (gravity) that my other 3 walls are - I surprised myself in that I really like how it's understated. It lets the rest of the room stand out. So you can't leave a comment saying you like the green and to change back, cause I'm not painting it a 4th time!
And just a glimpse behind the scenes, my 4 year old took this picture - - with my ladder, I couldn't quite reach all the way over my bed. And I can't pull that thing away from the wall by self - it's heavy! So I put a step stool on my bed - which is pretty wobbly in itself - and I had my toddler helper bouncing around on the bed while I tried to paint a straight line and hold a bucket of paint and not fall off - tricky!!
