Since Elise has a bit of a claim to the room, she helped choose the color...purple. So in the color family, I chose Behr's Lavender Bouquet for 3 walls, and an accent wall of Lilac Bloom. As it turns out, the accent wall was just a shade or two darker, so it's not really a noticeable difference unless you happen to paint a bit on the other wall by mistake (ask me how I know).
Elise wanted to help, and she happened to be staying with me for a couple of days shortly after I scraped the popcorn ceiling and got some cutting in done. We got her set up with a brush, and she enjoyed herself.
I forgot to post a picture of a storm cloud that came up on my trip to Arkansas recently. Shortly after I took the picture just outside of Greenville, it poured for several hours of my trip. I've always said that I can count on a rain either coming or going when I go to Sue's. I thought these clouds were amazing.
