Wow! As my sister so kindly reminded me, it's been 5 days since my last post. What a slacker!
There are many things that I can blame my lack of posting on but I'll spare you all the details and blame it on the fact that I had another kid free weekend (you can see the first one here) where I worked on redecorating projects around the house. (Remember I mentioned that here).
This go round, I was redoing my oldest daughters bedroom. Here is what it looked like before:
It's amazing what a little bit of paint can do for a room. And my daughter absolutely loves it - she feels so grown up. One of her favorite parts is the chalkboard. As you may be able to see, I still need to finish the trim around it, but that will come eventually. And I still need to get some tie-backs for the curtains and hem them up but that too will come in time.
Of course my oldest son is a little jealous now and while I'm pretty sure I'm done painting for a while, it looks like he's in store to at least get some new bedding and curtains.
**Sorry about the lack of picture quality. They were all taken with my phone. I just grabbed my camera to go take actual pictures...opened the door and went right back out because it's a disaster already and I refuse to clean it!
