Room Painting

In July, before we had the floors installed, we painted a wall in the kids rooms.  The rooms aren't huge, so we'd decided that one wall of color would be enough and we chose to paint the lowest wall where the ceiling starts at 1.60 m.

Despite the prospect of a brand new house, the kids had a hard time dealing with the whole move. All throughout the process we tried to find ways to make the whole situation easier and more appealing. One thing we'd promised from the beginning was that they could choose the color they'd like to have in their rooms. We spent a lot of time collecting paint chip cards and debating colors, but when it came down to it, both Chiara and Devin went for their favorite colors. And not the pastel versions of those colors, as you will see below. Hot pink and bright orange were duly purchased and we got to work.

After we'd taped everything off, we got to work and the kids had their first graffiti experiences. I know the colors look pretty bright, but in real life they aren't quite so bad...really.

Oh, and if anyone was wondering about Finley's room, he was away at that point. We had still planned to do his room, but he still hasn't decided on a color and I think he is actually enjoying the plain white.
