I promised myself when I started this blog that I would not miss a day, but today is a toughie to say much about. That's not to say I didn't *do* anything, I just don't have any lovely pics of my WIP room to show.

I got most of one of the big walls covered and wouldn't you know I need a second coat for this round. Sheesh! That's the heartache of choosing a color that's very similar to the one already there . . . At least I got enough done that I can stand back and say, HMMM, it looks kind of pinkish to me . Cornered Mr. K when he came home and it doesn't strike him that way, so we're okay. Not that I have anything against pink, it's just not on the top of my list and not what I was looking for for the first impression when you walk into the house.

Also, tonight is band practice night. I know, I'm a geek if I'm still doing that after all these years. So sue me. It's Mom's night out once a week and don't you know I go skipping out the door on Thursday evenings!

I've got until Friday evening to finish that one wall and start working on the rest, as Mr. K would like to move some furniture into the room so we're all not suffering from claustrophobia any more. Did I mention that our house is about 1,500 square feet? And I've moved an entire room's worth of furniture to various points within the small confines so I can have some room to work? I'm sure you're starting to get the picture now.

With that, I should have some more pictures tomorrow of great progress because I know that's all you're interested in: results!

Don't forget to feel free to chime in at any time with your success stories . . .



  1. I know exactly where you're coming from. We are in the process of doing the big repaint of the whole interior of our house too. Of course, it all started when we painted one room and realized the whole house looked yellow and we didn't like it. So, here we are, moving furniture and doing floors and yada yada yada......Good luck with yours!!!!

  2. @Rachelle - isn't that just the kiss of death for your spare time/money? Painting is like potato chips; you can't do just one. If you take pictures and don't mind publicity, I'm contemplating having guest projects (since I know quite a few of us ladies who do things like this).
