Alas, we did no painting whatsoever over the weekend.
Why? Well, the paint we got turned out to be a smidgeon too dark for the room, especially when compared to the medium brown couches. Instead of a light camel color, it was kind of a light milk chocolate color.
Unfortunately, my mom had already painted an entire wall by the time we (by which I mean "she") decided the color was just not working. Thing is, the paint looked a lot lighter when there wasn’t as much of it–like on the little sample card, for example.
So I’ll have another chance to paint, and will have more time to practice my technique before I start on the real thing.
