Paint It Your Way

When we bought our first home, I told my husband that I wanted to go all out -- I didn't just want colored walls, I wanted art painted directly onto those walls. But the minute he bought me the paint, fear set in. I told my husband about my fears and he replied with “Then you start over. You paint the walls with a primer and paint the walls again—until you get it right.” How freeing was that?!

If you've ever let fear get in your way of painting ... whether it be your walls, a canvas, or some other project ... I'd like to encourage you to put aside your fears and just get in there and paint! If you don't like it, you can always start over.
