Im starting to believe that someone could suffocate in the number of paint swatches Ive managed to accumulate over the last couple of weeks. That someone will probably be me, but Im holding out until after the long weekend.
While theres so many other projects I could be working on, Ive decided the holiday weekend calls for something more relaxing. Which means Ill be texturing the drywall and painting at least three rooms in the house.
Here are some of the colors Ive been considering

Most folks will use wood but Aaron went with concrete. In the end his home should be much stronger for the extra effort but I wonder if he’d make the same choice next time?
By day Aaron is a web developer and works from home, which is currently a small trailer he shares with his wife and baby girl. Their property is located somewhere in rural west Texas (I think), has a pond, garden, and lots of blackberry brambles. They’ve
