Free paint

I've been getting so much painting experience lately that I'm thinking about taking it up as my new profession - NOT. After hints and suggestions (nagging) from my children, I have been painting again and the white walls are finally gone in 2 more rooms of this Farmington house.

Here's a view of the extended kitchen area painted a dark sage green. It's a darker shade than the sage green of the main kitchen area. I think I like it.
Notice the white wall behind the TV in the family room in the background and compare to the picture below.
I forgot to take a before picture, so this is
AFTER #1















AFTER #2
Notice the white wall behind the TV is now a nice shade of warm brown.
















Below are two other views of the new brown wall. I think it even makes the fire place look acceptable. I guess the rock fire place can stay now, but the wood burning stove will have to go eventually. I plan to paint the other walls of the family room this color along with the hallway to the bedrooms. I'm just trying to keep up with my sisters who have done recent renovations.

This paint was not free, but right now YOU CAN can get a quart of FREE paint from Glidden by going on their website glidden.com before July 1. It's hard to pass up FREE. I hope they actually deliver on this offer. It will take 4-6 weeks to find out. Anyone else want to try for it?

Like you, I will never take up painting as a profession. It makes me crazy. The worst is a day after you finish when one of your children scratches your pretty wall! (oh yeah- you don't have that issue)

I love your color choices. Your walls look great.

Scratches on paint? What kids would do that? That reminded me of one time when Kevin or Ryan (do either of you want to admit to this, or claim innocence?) was riding a skate board inside the house. They skated over to one wall and put a big hole in it and then skated over the opposing wall and put another hole there. Oops! So, I've had my fun with that type of stuff. Thanks for reading and for your comments!
