Tangled Up in Blue

 So, you may recognize my oldest son, Sam, in this photo; handsome lad, talented,
and an aspiring actor and director.
 The other guy is his partner in crime, Chris. They have their own production company and make indy films that I personally think are brilliant.

Request and I will share a link to their work. Know ahead of time these two employ the vernacular.
However, extensively. Think Kevin Smith. If you are easily offended, it's not for you.
But that kind of creativity requires funding.
And I believe in lessons.
I'll write a check, you guys get started.
Now I know a lot of blogs show you what a simple, neat job painting a room is.
We're going to show you the ugly, ugly truth.
G'head, try this at home.
Magnetic primer requires multiple coats for some serious stick.

Again, NOT my child.

That thing still has to go, but at least I'm no longer nauseated by the ceiling.

...just wow.

Criticism does not go over well... all. Lower that eyebrow.

Eh, so Mom has a little detail work to do.
After a hard day's work, it's time to thoroughly clean your rollers and brushes...
...and your tarps...
...and head out for the Reel Big Fish concert!
Meanwhile, I'll just admire all that fresh color.
I like where this is going.
How about you?

I am in luuuurv with that blue and green.

I am a big fan of big bold wall colors and yours are freaking splendid.

I also love the magnetic door idea. If I ever brave my kitchen door, I'm so on that like white on rice.

Erin said...

I do like it!!! Makes me thing tropical, with a drink of the fruity variety in my hand! So fresh and new! Is he not your kid cause he's covered in paint?lol! Notice Sam's white shirt is either clean, or I am not seeing the paint, either way, smooth!

Alicia, You're going to love the chalkboard wall in the dining room then!

The magnetic stuff is just a primer, you don't have to change the color of your door or anything. Go for it!

Erin, nope, Chris belongs to some good friends of mine, but we love having the big lug around.

Hmmmm, Sam IS suspiciously clean...

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

Can I come visit? Ha! Your house and colors just look so darn cheery :0)

La Vie Quotidienne said...

Looking great! You are lucky to have such nice and willing help (-:

Michelle L. said...

Ooh, the green and blue rooms divided by white trim = beautiful! Love those colors together. Also, I love those shots of the Jackson Pollack on your floor. Yay for Sam and his PIC, hope they get all famous and shit. (Just a little vernacular.) Very cool that they can pay you back a bit for your financing, by prettifying the house under your command.

Brandy said...

I love the colors. But you have to share your secret, how do you get them to help. My hubs hates to paint. It's the one thing he will not help with.

Deb said...

That blue and that green together are AWESOME. And I love how happy the guys look to be painting - and getting their pictures taken!! So when are they making a movie about you? ;)

Unknown said...

I love it! Big, bright and bold. And I LOVE those two colors.

Especially the green. <3


Musings from Kim K. said...

It's so tropical and fresh. Makes me want to pull out my margarita glass and make another snow drink in your honor. Good thing it's Friday!

Meg said...

Arggg forgot to share my great tip yesterday for cleaning your brushes, check out this link, I've tried it and it works GREAT!!

MJ said...

Looks great!!! Love how the other guy is covered in paint and your kid is not hihihi!

Ginger said...

So I took your advice and now I have a hot new area rug in my living room!!! Check it out:


PS-your blue room look neato torpedo!

Heather said...

Wow! The colors are looking great, and your painters are pretty cute too! :)

Heather{Our Life In a Click} said...

I'm loving where it's going!! You really clean your tarps? I'm up for some entertainment, love to see the link.

Granny said...

I love the bright blue. Think I could hire that crew to come paint my place? :)

lisbonlioness said...

Loving it, warts and all. To think I am still stuck with Magnolia... blech!

Anonymous said...
