Ted’s away this week so he hasn’t seen my paint job yet. I figure if I describe it as awful, I’ll prepare him for an extreme and perhaps he’ll come home and assure me that it isn’t that bad..after all, expectations are everything… 🙂

    Thanks for the encouragement! Now I think I like it too…

    The technique is Watercolor Walls. http://www.watercolorwalls.com/
    basically using a rag to apply diluted acrylic over pale latex paint…fun!
