I accomplished my goal. The bedroom is done and I never want to paint again! I have to say I wasn't sure about the color until I got the first wall done. I have to say that I LURVES it! I just wish it was done. Completely and right now.
i HATE our furniture. It's Blake's grandmothers and it's old. It's really old but as much as i hate it, we are stuck with it for right now. At least until I find furniture I want. Here is the catch. I want something specific and something cheap. (I want a vintage-like dresser. Moreover a white one.) Then, I was going to order the duvet cover I found at West Elm.
Well, looks like I won't be getting that anytime soon. It' back ordered until the end of March. Wonderful. I feel like our room will never be done.
I also feel like we have 9,000 projects going on right now and we need that many things done. We need new floors, new cabinets (half of them are water damaged from the previous owner, as is our bathroom vanity) and new carpet. I am still waiting on a new fridge because we need to decide what to do with the cabinets since they put them too low. We either have to remove the cabinets above it or keep the current fridge we have. I am not sure how it will look without cabinets. The best thing would be to get all new cabinets, but that is not cheap and we have a gazillion other things that need to be done. Decisions. Decisions. Nothing is easy with this damn house.
Oh, I painted the bathroom too. I painted it 'Bitter Chocolate' and the man at Depot told me, 'um, you know this is going to be dark?' Thanks, but I am not a dumb girl who doesn't know what she is doing. I happen to think it looks fan-freaking-tastic thankyouverymuch!
I am working on a little project I hope works out the way it does in my head. I have a paper to work on tonight, so hopefully I will get to work on it tomorrow! It's one that is a little special in so many ways.....i hope it all doesn't go to waste! Wish me luck!
I am off to pick up a little birdie I fell in love with. No, not a real one but a cute little ceramic one. I'll snap some pics of it soon!
