The Wall

Yesterday we went to Home Depot to pick out our dream home appliances(a ritual we do weekly)
and I just had an inkling to stop by the "mis-tint" paint section and I found a quart of the exact dark chocolate brown paint I have been looking for! It was $1 so I bought it and IMMEDIATELY started painting my wall. 
What I didn't realize is that we don't have a tall enough ladder or a long enough extender to reach the top of the wall. We have a split entry home with vaulted ceilings and I kinda sorta went off half cocked on this one.
 Dave was so mad at me. 
Anyways, long story short and three hours later the wall was finished. 
"Don't ever do that again" was all Dave could say to me. 
Forget the fact that I had tons of other things that needed to be done, I wanted that wall painted dammit!
THIS is what it looked like before.

And this is after:
I actually prefer an eggshell or a satin at least, but this was semi-gloss and for a buck, I can't complain:)
