Another painting project...

Steve apologizes every time he tells me he has to go out of town for work. All that goes through my mind is, "What room should I paint."

He went out of town and the guest room got a facelift. I taped one afternoon and cut in. I painted the next night once the kids went to bed. Just like that, another room down!

Everyone knows by now that this home is a work in progress. And by that I mean - it will take years to get it where we want it. So although I might get the time and energy to paint a room. That is just a tiny step in order to get these rooms in a presentable stage. Over time they evolve and hopefully one day I can show them in all their glory!

Before: After - two coats of Benjamin Moore Gray Horse: Every room has a checklist of the things that need to happen. It's discouraging to see how long that list is!

  1. What a difference a little paint makes!! That bedding is SO pretty. I have to know where you got it. :)

  2. Thanks for letting me vent to you yesterday...I so needed that!! It was a rough day, and it felt good to talk

  3. Looks great! It always takes so long to get a home the way you want it. But you have to start somewhere. Love all the updates!

  4. How about an old paneled door as a head board? I want to build one someday. I saw it done once on a DIY show. Everything looks amazing, even with the mauve carpet. Whatever you do, don't try to match your walls to the carpet!! Miss you guys.
