Why 5 days you ask? Well....the room used to have a purple Faux Finish that I didn't like along with a border of stenciled flowers. After finding our colors at a local Benjamin Moore store, I decided to buy my paint from them. I'd done some research comparing the two paint brands and found many people thought BM performed better and was worth the extra $8 a gallon. Normally we are Behr people. Never had a problem with Behr. I wish we had gone with Behr or decided to prime the room first.
After the 4th day of painting, 3rd coat of yellow, 2nd coat of light pink and realizing we would need another coat of each, I was done. I was crying while rolling on the 3rd coat of yellow and profusely apologizing to Josh for choosing a different brand of paint.
Our friend Jessica assured me all the work would be worth it in the end and it is. I love the colors. I have loved them since I chose them and now each time I walk into the room I smile.
