Busy... Busy.... BUSY!

I'm still around. (no pictures in the this blog - coming with more detail soon).

I've been Working in the yard - and it looks fabulous.

AND..... if working in the yard is not a big enough task... I've decided to paint my living room - which will end up painting most of the house.

Now, I totally hate choosing a paint color. The first paint color I loved and still love... but when Jason and Sharon came over Tuesday night they said it was awful *Sigh* and the whole living room was painted. With the living room painted I still have 2 1/2 gallons of that color left because I purchased 4 gallons. (I think it will be the color I paint my bedroom with and maybe the bathroom).

I decided to bring more paint chips home to compare with the fireplace rock. Brady and I put them up and choose another color. I went and purchased it (only 1 gallon) and put it up on a small wall by the fire place to check the color against the rock. I think it has too much pink / peach in it. Something I always get that same type of color. I just couldn't paint too much with that color.

I decide to go get another color - and paint the other side of the fireplace. I don't think it has enough color in it.

I come to the conclusion that the paint color Brady chose will end up on the walls. To paint the whole living room is before me again... Sigh...

The reason I am doing this is I purchased a new sofa and love seat over the weekend. RC Willey had it on sale for $399 ($570 off regular price). Yes, $399 for both - I am excited. I stood in line for 2 hours to make sure I was able to purchase it. It will be delivered on Saturday.

I just need to get the living room re-painted. OH! and I purchased new living curtains at 50% off this past weekend. I need to get them up too.

It will be a whole new living room. I can't wait until Saturday. Stay tuned.

Put your boys to work to help paint!!! I actually don't mind painting, but cutting in is sometimes difficult for me. We have painted almost our whole entire house, and I am sure that we will be painting again in the future! Good luck and I can't wait to see pictures.

Goodluck with all of the work!

OH Sondra, I'm in the same boat. To bad we can't help each other paint our living rooms. It's so much work!!! I get so nervous picking out paint. So cute your son can pick out a great color.

Good luck with all of this. Have fun in your yard.

Love to have new paint on the walls! Don't like painting, though. You have to paint your living room twice! So sorry.

Hope you post pictures of the finished room!
