Before and After

Before and After

My stuffed animals My brother, Brad, and I spent almost the entire day painting my room. It turned out wonderfully, and I'm very pleased with it--not only are the walls a different colour, but it gave me a chance to clean out my room and reorganise. ^_^ Of course, a lot of prep work went into the endeavor. I had to remove all of my stuffed animals from my room ... and I have a lot. They aren't going back in, because I'm not putting the spare bed back. They will instead be relocated to a new tenement located in the family room.

Before painting So once we had cleared stuff out and set up our gear, we cleaned the walls and started to paint.After painting It only took two coats with some touch up before the baby blue turned into a rich "sapphire glow". (Don't ask me how they come up with these colour names...). After it dried, we cleaned up and I started to move stuff back into my bedroom. I just finished, and I've left most of the little stuff out for tonight because I'm exhausted. It's a good thing exams are over. :D
