Orange anyone?!?

I have been wanting to paint a living room wall real bad! In november I decided to paint the wall orange. I just haven't had the time to get around to it. On Monday I came home from work at 6 and decided tonight was the night! Rillz and I went to the store and bought the paint and paintbrushs. By the time we started doing anything it was 9. I taped the wall while Rillz made dinner. It only took about an hour to tape and paint the first coat. We ate and then decided to paint coat 2. I love how it came out! Exactly the color I wanted.

Here is the wall and living room before it was painted and re-arranged

We are so ready to rock-and-roll!

Rillz pouring the paint. Oh lala look at that sexy orange color
Of course we just had to write on the wall with paint.

Having so much fun painting. I was pathetically sore the next day from this.

Oh so pretty. I just love it!

This is how my living room is set up now. Looks cleaner and refreshing.

I found those awesome black boxes at ross for $20. I was very happy! I just don't know what to put in them yet.
Love, love, love it! So relaxing to have this project done.

I love that color! It looks really good. I saw a green couch so identical to yours at the thrift store. It made me laugh. You know you can paint over those air vents with the orange. Then they won't stick out so much. They would just blend right into the wall bringing the focus soley to the art. You can just run the roller right over them. Did you ever measure your pantry door opening?

I love how it turned out! I remember on "melt down day" we sat there and tried to pick out a color when we were stuck at the house, kind of funny thinking about it now. I'm glad it's finally done and looks great! I got some boxes like that too (haven't put them up yet) but I found lots of good things to put in them at Savers and DI.
