New Paint in the Living Room and Dining Room

The painters are here!

    My husband and I have been painting the interior of our homes forever, and I bet we've painted miles of ceilings, walls, and woodwork in our time. (You might remember I painted our craft room and guest room just last year.) But when it came time to paint our living and dining rooms this spring, we were able splurge and hire professional painters for the first time ever.

It's such a luxury! 

All I had to do was pick a color and pack up our stuff!
And as I sit here writing this blog post, the painters are on the other side of the plastic working their magic. They'll accomplish in two days what it would have taken us a couple of weeks to do.

No spackling and sanding. No climbing up and down ladders balancing a paint roller to reach ten foot tall ceilings. No tedious cutting-in of box beams, picture rails, wide moldings, and wainscoting. And my very favorite, no daily cleaning of paint supplies.

It's truly wonderful! 


  1. The only place I had professionals paint in my home was the kitchen and it was divine! Can't wait to see the finished rooms Laurel!

  2. I'm so glad you get to treat yourself to this!

  3. I never painted a Wall in my time, ever, lol! This is a great treat and luxury for sure, as it must be tiring too!
    I can't wait to see how beautiful and perfect is gonna look!
    Have a fun week, menawhile.

  4. It's going to be fabulous!!!

  5. Yay - can't wait to see how it turns out!

  6. Hi, Laurel! I can't wait to see how the paint turns out. I just saw your home featured over at Town and Country Living blog! How exciting. I hope that you and your family had a lovely Easter. ~ Jamie

  7. Oh....I so so hope I can do that some day....I have been painting my whole adult life I think!!!!!

  8. Hi Laurel,
    How wonderful to have painters to do the painting. It will be beautiful. I love the color samples and cannot wait to see which color you chose.

  9. Professional painters are a wonderful treat! Can't wait to see what comes next!

  10. It's going to look so nice, Laurel. We do most of our painting ourselves as well so I can definitely understand splurging this time!

  11. Hi Laurel, it is nice to get some help if possible. I had painting done one time and it was a luxury. My hubby happens to love to paint as a stress reliever so we do our own too. It is going to be so nice. Enjoy and have fun decorating again and putting the rooms back together.
    Have a great day!!

  12. I am glad you get to sit back and let someone else do the work.

    Congratulations on the feature at Town and Country - I will go check it out.

  13. Good for you Laurel, It will be so much better with someone doing the work for you guys. Enjoy and I can't wait to see.
