paint it red

Thanks to my parents, I grew up doing various d.i.y. house projects and am known to be somewhat handy with a paint brush. So... it's probably not such a shock to those who know me well that a few weeks  ago, on a whim, I painted our entire living room a deep red. A gamble,  to be sure - but it came out quite nicely. Though, it's still not an easy task to find a decent backdrop for photos in our little house, I asked "the brit" to give it a try (note that the red in the photos is a bit more orange & brighter than the true hue.)
outfit details:
top: xxi
shoes: urban
skirt: vintage (TLO
bracelet: vintage

why thank you - according to by bf, if it has a bow on it, I'll like it. I think that's only half true.

Could you be any cuter? I don't think so - you're such a doll! And well done on your paint job.

 glad you think so! I've never done red before so it was a little scary.
