(I *did* feel a little Tom Sawyer-fooled by the 15th red one...)
Super paint tip: if you have a little flexibility w/ your color palate, check out the "Oops Paint" selection at Lowes or Home Depot first. (Oops = extra or paint that was mixed but wasn't the color the customer actually wanted, so it's sold SUPER CHEAP! The paint + primer we were looking at was $29 per gallon; each of our Oops gallons were $7!!!) We lucked out and got ALL THREE CANS in the Oops. The purple was lighter than we planned, the red a shade darker, and the blue was more vibrant Carolina blue than Tiffany aqua; but since we had that flexibility, we jumped on saving almost $70!
We finished painting, and JB assembled them on Saturday afternoon:
He added the backing on Sunday, and we carried them all upstairs. Finished in-the-room shots to come...ummm...whenever the kids get their stuff organized. (So, by the end of the summer? ;-))
