I'm going to paint my walls!

I finally decided to do something about the dreary walls in my apartment.  The light comes in only one side (from the West, so it's brightest in the afternoon), and the place needs a total facelift ... starting with paint.

On Sunday I went to the Home Depot and picked out Behr's Paris White, which is actually more white than the above swatch would suggest.  (I realize different screens show the same hue differently, but on my screen it's more pink than it is in real life).

It's the lightest shade of ballerina pink mixed with a bright white.  I want the newly painted walls to have the effect of casting a bright, rosy glow in the room without standing up and saying "Hi, I'm PINK!"  The small swatch I've painted so far from the sample jar suggests that Paris White will do the trick.  Exciting!!

I am going to have this place looking like a grown up girly girl lives here, if it takes me a year or more (and it might, on my budget).  But I've already been here nearly a year, so time passes, and what's the huge rush anyway?

Just want to do it RIGHT.  Right for me.
