He really doesn't like to paint!

No you're not losing it. This post is dated October 17 because that's when the story happened. I actually posted it on October 30. Sneaky, eh?

When we moved into our house, we thought we could paint the whole thing in just 4 days! Okay, now we know that sounds crazy, but we were young and green then. We did give it an honest try though...painting through the nights, sniffing paint fumes, and listening to The Ventures CD on repeat f-o-r-e-v-e-r !

Sure they're lovely memories but we still can't listen to The Ventures! And anytime I mention we should paint something, my husband gets that look in his eye. So when I mentioned that I thought our living room was too dark and that we should consider either repainting in a lighter colour or buying a new sofa in a lighter colour, daddy didn't even hesistate! Okay he did but for like 5 minutes and then we were all in the car on our way to the sofa showroom ;0)

Our old living room furniture...

Our new daddy-really-really-really-doesn't-want-to-paint-again-sofa...

Good to know ;0)

Oh, and Julian approves too...

Thank you daddy!!!


  1. Looks great!!! We live in a really modern house with 12' ceilings and open stairwells. We rented scaffolding to paint - it seemed like it took forever. We still have two other stairwells we'd like to paint but it'll be a while before I buy more paint. Ick. Buying new furniture is definitely a better option!!!

  2. Cutest baby ever! Oh, and the couch is great, too :)
