**Do not be intimidated by the free handed painting! Really, I DON'T paint. In fact, it just plain scares me. I'm always so afraid of messing something up. But I could do this, which really means, anyone can. I used a really, really small angled brush and after trying out a few different brushes this is the one that got the best results for me.
So, the living room is coming along. I'll have to wait until next month to figure out curtains...you know, the whole money thing:) Tomorrow it's fun at the lake, so we'll catch up when the weekend is through!
