Paint fumes don't bother me too much maybe because I never paint?betty
Ha ha, Betty, that's funny.
A roller's good when you're in a rushBut I prefer the tin and the brush.But......When it comes to painting , I can't get to it.I find it best to let someone else do it!
Oh Bazza! Wonderful poem... and so early morning yet!Loved your post on Joseph William Mallord Turner. (smile).
Love the smell of paint- smells like progress!
Oh yes, me too, Lisa!!!
I hear they have paints that smell like peaches....
Really - I think I might like that.
An all important part of decorarating Dixie..
Sometimes when I'm not sure of the color/colour, I roll about three canvasses and hang them beside each other on one wall. Wait to see if its what I want.
Always makes me think of new houses, just built, and the excitement of moving in.
I inherited my parents' home and there's a lot I want to freshen up. Paint is so easy to change out.
Love the ocean wave! We are in the midst of painting. I've always gone with light colors and now are being adventurous with dark colors. Loving how it's coming out!
I read a blog that talked about painting all inside doors black. It was great looking. That wave will have more teal or turquoise... not sure until I get going.
My white walls give me not trouble, unlike bathroom stalls, where I get out on the double
I love a white wall - got a 25 foot hall.One large stripe down the middle.It's all the paint I had - there's no riddle.
The paint smell does make me feel faint. I've never used a textured roller before. That's neat!
Chrys, you might need extra ventilation then. Last year I made my own roller pattern by cutting it with an exacto knife.
I love to paint ...hate the prep work tho! Enjoying your blog! Cheers!
Thank you, Kathe! Prep takes me longer than the painting.
That wave is cool. Paint fumes can make me light headed. Have a great weekend. Untethered Realms / MPax
The wave is sweet. I'll be using darker colors. Have a lovely weekend!!
Nope, I don't like paint fumes one bit. I like the wave too.
I've got huge windows I open up when I'm painting. Glad you like the wave. I'll be by to see you today!
Whoa, that's awesome! Unfortunately what I see in my mind's eye is not usually what shows up on the paper. LOL. Thanks for sharing!Untethered Realms
Yes, Gwen, but you're interpretation is the 'artistry' of the mural... makes your work unique.You are very welcome, and thanks for visiting. I'm enjoying Untethered Realms' posts.
That mural is just gorgeous.
Check out the website. It's easier than you think to paint one.
I love textured paint on walls, but I haven't ever managed it very successfully….
A friend of mine painted stripes in 'flat' finish pink about 8-10 inches apart. Then she took satin finish pink and painted the in between strips. Simple but very pretty.
Aside from the fumes,Freshly painted walls,Always brighten a room.Your poem on my blog was much better! Good luck with your decorating, Dixie!Julie
I agree - paint works wonders.You know, I kept thinking of Patsy Cline for some odd reason!
Another great homemaking idea, even that first picture looks awesome.
You buy the rolls in whatever pattern you want. It's super easy.
life got a lot easier when latex paint replaced oil based paints.
Definitely, Billy! For my murals I use acrylics.
I definitely do not like the scent of fresh paint and can't be in one for long, but I do like the look once the job is done. Cute little poem. I really like your theme this month!
Best to paint when windows and fans can be used abundantly. My theme involves all the things I've been doing the last couple of years in the new home. Thanks, Cathy!
