Could I Interest You in Some Silverberry?

We’re at it again, but this time in the bedroom… we decided to paint! After painting my office and seeing what $20 worth of paint can do to a room, we just had to take on another project. For some reason I (Ben) have always wanted a purple room. I think it stems back to the fact that I love the purple ceiling at Abuelo’s. Anyway, we went to Home Depot and found the color “Silverberry,” and thought about for a month before we painted this Monday night. We’ll post pictures real soon so you can get an idea of the color.

Here’s how painting works at our house: We go to the paint store after I have been dragging my feet about it and we get all of the stuff. Next, we go home and we both start painting away for a good 30 minutes to an hour. Monica uses the roller and I do the intricate stuff. After that, Monica decides we need to take a break and we get something to eat and she starts watching TV. Now, I want you to notice the change in person—I and I alone paint the rest of the room while my beautiful wife just watches and tells me how she should be helping me. Fortunately, this room only took from about 7 PM-12:30 AM.

Here is what I want you to get from our experience: change something about where you live. We always feel refreshed when we change something we’ve gotten used to and for some reason we get more energy. We are now excited about walking into our painted rooms. Something about making the old new again—seems like something that might be in the Bible (with a slightly different context, of course). Wow, I made it through the whole blog without mentioning Cali!
