Painting is supposed to be relaxing, right?

What a crazy couple weeks it’s been. We’re officially nearly a month into living in the new house, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never felt more at ease and happy living in Belleville. I think a huge part of it has to do with the fact that we’re no longer renting. It’s all on us now; which I’m sure will bring a whole new level of stress, but at least I know I don’t have to deal with shitty landlords.

Anyway! Fun stuff.. I’ve been painting a little bit. Literally a little bit each night. I mean I’ve probably been doing cut-ins in my hallway all week. It ain’t going to paint itself, right? Here’s a little before:

This is what happens when you use flat paint in a high traffic area. Tiny little black finger prints EVERYWHERE. (and not washing your walls apparently for 3 years – ugh)

Thankfully, it’s a pretty easy fix. New paint! I picked out Smoked Oyster by Behr Premium. Here’s what it looks like in the can.

AND on the wall.

Slow but steady!

I fully plan on finishing this whole space over the weekend. Wish me luck.

  1. Hi there,

    I just bought the same paint color, and I’m worried that it appears pinkish instead of light gray. Is this what you’re finding in your light?

    Would love your advice!
