Paint by Numbers

So having just bought a house, we are in the throes of painting. We are basically re-painting every room except the kitchen and it's definitely harder than I thought. Painting is not really physically hard (other than your hand cramping) but it's exhausting! I think that the ceilings were the hardest...our living room and dining room have these beautiful coved ceilings that I LOVE but man are they hard to paint!

I'm still a little apprehensive about color - don't get me wrong...I love the colors we've chosen but they're bright and bold and it's quite a chance we're taking here! Especially because paint is NOT cheap and I don't have the time or energy to repaint!

This is our basic living room colors in a sample room...I think the red is a bit more red than in this picture though:

Our dining room is also the same red...the first coat of the dining room went up last night so I'm anxious to see how the first coat dried...it was pretty bright when we left but not as scary as I thought it would be!

Last thought: Why is it snowing in April???
