A Paint Party - The Perfect Girls Night

Here are a few pictures from our paint party last weekend. I don't know about you guys but my desire to go out is getting smaller and smaller as of late. Lame I know. But when we were out one night, at a bar, I announced I was shipping Matt off to the casino, and in exchange I'm painting a stripe wall. (It took me 4 days to convince him). Then the ggirls were down too! I promised to provide the wine and food and voila! A paint party was born.

So about the taping - Kristen and Rachie came over used the "strip by strip, level method" which is just like it sounds. Marking points, then taping from point a to point b using a level to make sure it's straight. It was pretty tedious but it worked out. The only problem was we started at the bottom and the top stripe was uneven, which was kind of the most important stripe in my mind. We all agreed it needed to be redone in the am .... So I started allll over the next day. But more about that all the nitty gritty tomorrow! And pics of the finished product! It was so worth the trouble.

Love - Tessy ...Ps. I'm writing from a dirty cab in Chicago... So excuse the uncentered pictures :)

My desire to go out is almost zero anymore.

A paint party is awesome - you get work done, and get to hang out in lounge attire and drink and eat with your friends. Winner!

I can't wait to see the finished walls. You've inspired me to do something creative when I paint my bedroom and bathroom this coming spring.

As I was reading this, I glanced at my bathroom wall which was supposed to be finished 2 years ago! There is a big patch of white surrounded by 3 sides of brown. The middle is supposed to be orange. Never got around to it! lol! I can't wait to see the finished product!
