Project #2

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:

And here are some after shots:

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!

Hey, what are sisters for if they're not there to remind you of what a slacker you are? :-D

What do you have to say?

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
