Much Needed Touch Up

Our townhouse has needed a little TLC after 4.5 years
of normal wear and tear ... scuffed walls, banged base boards,
and this lady finally had enough!!


I was on a mission to touch up the walls (random)
AND had a sudden desire for it to be like new.
Gabe's response, "What made you think to do this?"


I only rubbed up on the wall once, splattered on my pants twice, and flung it on the carpet three times!!!  I call that a success for a rookie.

Thankfully, paint comes out pretty easy ... and it was only white.
Happy weekend to you all and cheers to being domestic!

Yay for home improvement! If it's just a scuff and not a chip, the Magic Eraser works wonders :) I love them!

Painting is super fun!

Our house definitely has some bangs and bruises, too! Feel free to stop on by! Haha. Hooray for you being domestic. Isn't it so nice to get things like that done??

Can't wait to see the finished product! PS - Will you write a post soon (and maybe you already have) about the best places to eat/ go do in Seattle? My family and I are going on vacation there for a few days this summer!

I love changing things up with paint! Good job on being pretty clean (I usually am covered in paint! He he)

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I see all kinds of spots that need touching up too! Glad you didnt make too much of a mess :)

I would be such a disaster doing any household painting! I'm impressed with your limited "oops" moments, I'd be covered from head to toe. =)

Great job!

Annie said...

I need to do that too!! Not looking forward to it though :(

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

Yay for domestication...Wanna help me out in that area?

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

I despise painting! Every time I do it, I say "Next time we are hiring someone!" And then low and behold find myself doing it again.

And I have to tell you, everytime I open your blog I may or may not swoon a little over your husband. He's quite handsome!

Jax said...

Definite high five on the domestic goddess status! And um... the minor paint flinging is TOTALLY a victory! The first time I painted, I didnt realize you needed to tape between the wall and the white crown moulding. Let's just leave it at that... oops.

OceanDreams said...

ha ha ha you go girl with getting that paint everywhere! i bet your house looks amazing.

Neha said...

Painting the house sure will be fun. Waiting to see how the work went :)

That's great that you're getting it taken care of. I hate having stuff like that hang over my head!
