The picture taken from a phone, which is why it sucks. The batteries in the (also-kind-of-suck-y) camera died and I haven't bought new ones yet.
So, here is our final Pre-Paint to do list:
Wait for the TV stand to be shipped and make sure we like it and like the color of wood against a teal wall. Mount our TV on the wall (mounting hardware is already purchased) Install new in-ceiling speakers. Run all of the wires through the wall and install all electronics.
YAY! Now it's time to go pick up paint swatches and see how they look! I am super excited to paint, too! I recently helped a friend paint her living room. It was the first time I had ever touched a paint roller or brush against a wall, so I was naturally a bit nervous to be painting someone else's wall while I was "experimenting". But at the same time I was also happy to be making any first-timer mistakes NOT on my wall. But it turns out that I actually really enjoy painting and I'm not too bad at it. Believe it or not, I like doing the corners and edges the best! Being a Type-A person, I appreciate creating perfect paint lines and actually find it quite exhilarating and "risky" to be painting something permanent right next to something I am not supposed to be painting at all. Is that weird? Maybe. But I am not a risky person at all, so that's about as exciting as I get!
Since I posted my Before and Not-So-After living room post, I have found some excellent teal living room inspiration which I will share soon. Have an awesome weekend!
