For those of you dying to know how my painting project is going (in case you tuned in late, husband and I are painting two bedrooms), I am happy to report IT IS DONE!! Kind of involved because this redecorating also involved painting two chests, two doors, two knick knack shelves, a mirror frame... Anyway, it's done, looks good so I'll share a few pictures now and later.
First up is the door to my patriotic bedroom (please ignore the purple wall behind it-- that wasn't painted yet.)
The doors in this house were painted when we bought it (wish they weren't) so to you "vintage patina buffs" out there: it's not my fault!
