Elliott's weekend project


We invited some friends over for dinner on Sunday night, and they both have brand new houses, which translates into "clean walls"! Our wall in the kitchen had milk spilled on it one day, and since the builders here use flat paint for everything, the milk soaked into the paint and it was not cleanable. This wall gets lots of abuse anyway, so we decided to repaint with a scrubbable paint (before they came over), and make it an accent wall. I think it turned out quite nice, and now I am ready (for Elliott!) to paint the whole house in exciting colors! It is an olive green color called "Sandalwood".

(Is my kitchen starting to look like Stephanie's or Judy's?)

I love your house, and I'm a little jealous because I've been "talking" about painting something for 3 years and we haven't done anything. sigh.
