Don't quit your day job.

It's a good thing I've never tried to make a living out of painting. We wanted to repaint the baseboards and around the doorways of the kitchen. The paint needed to be touched up anyway, so we decided to just paint over the existing paint with white (we had previously selected a "latte" color that was not exactly what we had hoped for once it was actually on the baseboards, but wasn't so bad that we absolutely had to change it stayed)

Here is the before with the beige:

And the after, in white (a much cleaner look):

I was really proud of myself, walking around the house all "Oooh, I'm such a good painter! Look at my masterpiece! In your face, HGTV!". My gloating came to a screeching halt when Brian pointed out to me what I had done above the doorway. I was too short to see it before. oops. It's all about the effort, yes?

Chez Instant Family House Rule #347: Never, nevr paint without using 3M brand blue painter's tape.

It is expensive but worth every penny. Don't buy other brands. Only 3M will do.

But apparently Chez Instant Family lacks a house rule mandating spell check. Ooops.
