A Whole Lotta Paintin' Goin' On

I have painted three rooms plus a bath and a ceiling in the past few weeks, plus single-handedly copy edited an entire magazine. So that's why I haven't posted in awhile.

First of all is Heinz's office. Don't adjust your screens. Yes, it's bright purple; it's Benjamin Moore's Amethyst Cream. I didn't post the second room I painted. It's cream. I didn't think it would photograph very well.

This is the main guest bedroom. It matches some fabric that I picked out to make a quilt and some accessories. No, I don't know how to make a quilt. But if other people can learn to make awesome quilts from online tutorials, then I can too, right? The walls are Benjamin Moore's Providence Olive, and the ceiling is Icing on the Cake (a bright, light blue). I think it's really relaxing.

I painted the guest bath Benjamin Moore's Dill Pickle, which I found out is a lighter version of the dining room color (Jalapeno Pepper). It also matches the fabric. Stay tuned for guest bedroom updates!!

Everything looks awesome! I can't wait to relax in the guest bedroom. And I'm a big fan of the Dill Pickle paint--that's the color of the hall bath in the condo. (At least it was last time I was there.)

Is there a surface left in your house that you haven't painted?

It all looks great. Can't wait to see it in person! I'm only a little disappointed that we don't get to see Heinz's swords.

Heinz is still in the process of organizing his office. And there are actually some rooms I haven't painted yet.

Still is! I love Dill Pickle. The paint and the edible kind.

You are doing such a great job, Leah! I should follow your example and finish my own bedroom.
