Time for Change

I've been feeling an itch for some change. So what's the quickest, least expensive way to change something? Paint it!! So that's just what I've been doing. I painted the bathroom by the living room and I liked it so much I decided to paint our bedroom, too. Now here's the boring bedroom BEFORE: And here's AFTER: I'm just glad it's done. My wrists and hands were so sore from all the painting. And you wouldn't believe how hard it is to keep 2 curious boys out of this room for a week while it's getting painted. There were a lot of late nights b/c I had to wait 'til the boys were asleep to assure that they couldn't get their hands on anything. I still need to move in the rest of our furniture (which we don't have b/c we are selling our old stuff and buying a new dresser and nightstands). It looks kind of empty. (I found the bedspread/pillows at Kohls! My favorite place to shop.) And yes, I painted the brush on the wall. ?? What do you think?

Oh my heavens that was a project. I can't believe you painted the brush on the wall, I don't have that kind of patience. You did a great job.

You're more than welcome to come & do our house too! (Hahaha!). You're a real trooper to do all of that hard work by yourself. I can't stand painting.
