Before (or Rather During) & After

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to pull the bird decals off of my kitchen wall. They'd been up for several years and I'd finally grown tired of them. Unfortunately, when I went to pull the first bird off, the paint came with it. Uh oh! And, of course, the paint under the top coat of paint just had to be a different color. Double uh oh!

Once I got started, there was no turning back - peeling the paint was SO addictive! If you've ever had a sunburn peel, you may know what I mean. I pulled the other birds off with the same results - a mixture of fear and excitement filled me with each large sheet of paint I removed. Well, I decided that if I was going to have to repaint the walls, I'd add some color. Enter Behr's Hallowed Hush (love, love, love this color!!). After two days of scrapping, sanding and priming, I had finally finished - and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Without further adieu, here are the results:

P.S. You can see more of my apartment over at Apartment Therapy, where it's a contestant in the small, cool contest. If you feel compelled, you should vote for me!!

I'm in Curtis Park - it's a great hood. Close to midtown, but not too close. :)

The fresh coat of paint made it look like a whole new room. Very nice!
