Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my guest posts over at Type A and All Things Bright and Beautiful! Tuesday was not the greatest day, but your comments definitely brightened it.
Why was Tuesday not a great day? Mainly because I was painting the trim in my bathroom. I am a terrible interior painter and I get so frustrated when my DIY projects look super-DIY instead of professional.
That's why I need your help...how do you paint trim to make it look good? My trim was left with visible brush strokes (ugh!!!) and I can't paint a straight line to save my life. So, despite taping the bathroom like crazy, I can never get the nice, crisp lines that I want. Do I need to use a special brush? Should I use an angled brush? How do you not get paint on the floor? I used Behr semi-gloss paint, but maybe I should have used an oil-based paint to leave that nice super-shiny, smooth finish?
It didn't help that I was exhausted. No, not just from crashing from my sugar high. My six-year old spent the night in the ER after not being able to breathe in the middle of the night. She is much better now. She has the croup mixed with asthma and all of the coughing sent her into a bronchial spasm. It was very frightening!
Lesson learned: do not attempt house projects on no sleep! I would have been better off cuddling on the couch with my daughter and watching a movie with her. Instead, I let her watch a movie on my laptop in my bed. When I came in to check on her, there was gum all over the computer. In fact, my hand is sticking to the computer while I type this. Surprisingly, she has "no idea" how the gum got on the computer.
Here's a little peek at what I've been busy working on this week. It involves my new favorite color, gray.
I'll have the full reveal for you next week.
