Painting the Living Room! and look who came to visit :)

Mom came to visit!

It was so nice to have my mom here and we got so much done! The living room is the first room to go white on white. There were about 100 holes to patch in the walls but I was able to get all of the prep done early in the week - the orbital sander made it so much faster than the paint prep we did in the small apartment. 

Once the walls were prepped it took two coats of primer and two coats of paint and two long work days to cover up all of the navy blue but we did it! The new color is Valspar Ultra White Base A - basically the whitest white you can get. 

The living room looks so much bigger and brighter with white walls and light floors. We still need to finish up with trim around the opening to the dinning room and the baseboards but we are making progress. I can't wait for all of the walls to be done!

Once we were done mom and I kicked back and had a delicious dinner at Hen of the Wood in Burlington - so YUMMM :) Can't wait for you to come back Mom!
