These Green Walls

I popped the cover on the can of primer and began painting the hallway of our apartment today.  He didn’t want me to paint, I knew it.  But I’ve been on Pinterest a little too much lately and was determined to give our home a facelift. “Ugh, I hate painting.” Which he totally does and […]
