Paint paint and more paint.

It seems that spring is nothing but busyness and the blog has taken a back seat. I've painted 3 rooms in less than 3 weeks. This is one of them. My laundry room was a sage green with a vintage boarder. Liked it for a while but decided to lighten things up.

Getting the boarder down was a nightmare. I've put up and taken down plenty of wallpaper but this came off one small piece at a time. It took longer to remove the boarder than it did to paint.
I love the soft grey color. It has a hint of blue in it.  I'm not done with accessories as I took these pictures real quick. I use what's called a paint roller. The paint goes into the roller and it never drips or splatters so you don't need drop cloths. I love it. Saves time going up and down a ladder to get more paint.

You can see the color a bit better here. I keep my memo board in the laundry room so I don't have clutter on the front of the fridge. I'll show you the entry and living room in another post. I just realized I've painted 7 rooms since last October. That's almost the whole house! I'm considering the kitchen and master bedroom...just gotta find the time.

Thanks for coming by and the nicest comment. I am getting ready to tackle a wallpaper border in my laundry room, too and paint it again. I hope mine comes down easier than yours did.
