Paint Paranoia

I am preparing to paint my living room, entry and hallways all one color tomorrow. I get so stinkin' nervous about painting! I have a really light yellow kitchen I love, and a blue dining room I adore, but I think this room makes me especially nervous b/c it is bigger and will take a LOT more work. I know it is time b/c I am so tired of the cream walls, but the idea of colored paint everywhere just kind of overwhelms me. I will post pics of the results when we are done. It has taken me 3 days to just pick the color (we have settled on a very neutral brown called Cafe au Lait from Restoration Hardware--we will just do a color match) and now tomorrow morning I will slap it up on the walls. My dear friend Kristi is coming to help so I can get a lot done before the weekend. Whew, I'm nervous! Ok, I'm going to stop babbling and start taping for tomorrow.

We had a special weekend with family--I'll post pics and details soon! Off we go to paint!

I'm ready to see pics of the painting project! ALL my walls are neutral, so I get excited to see other people be creative with paint!

It is taking us forever! We are finally done edging, and we are rolling today, so hopefully it will be suitable for pics soon. I had no idea how much work this was, ha! But I too love neutral colors.
