I love paint... my office

 Hi friends, so much going on here. We had a great visit with my parents and we were all sad to see them go. I will post our pictures soon. I know everyone is busy in this world but it is crazy at times. With moving and remodeling going on that puts a fun twist on things let alone normal stress. I have read a few articles lately about parents being over the top with projects and school parties. School is defiantly more fun then when I was a kid. Lauren loves holidays and this week she even put out a snack for the leprechaun so of course he had to leave her a treat and note. Then both boys had major projects due last week before spring break so that was fun. Life is good though and I am trying to take each day as a gift. 
Onto the house!!! I really could not take this office another day to be honest..The color caused me deep anxiety and every time I walked into the room my thought went to "I hate this color"
 The funny thing is a long time ago this was a great color or was it ever, ha ha!! I actually painted my office this color in my old house back in 2006 it was bad back then and only lasted a year. I was in a Panera Bread color phase. Dear lord who would ever think olive poop green was good, apparently I did at one time.

Can you believe this? I absolutely love paint colors and if truth be told I study them for hours before I make a decision. I really love paint!! I love this color!!! It's Silver Stand by Sherwin Williams. I am totally impressed with their paint too. With a coupon it is comparable to any other paint. It went on so smooth did not drip and had great coverage. I can finally relax I found the perfect shade of blue/gray.
 It makes the molding just pop 

 I love this bird painting. It's really it just a piece of paper with birds on it I bought from a framing and art store for $4. I happened to have a frame and I just used spray adhesive and put it right on a existing frame with no glass just a cream colored matting. It worked great.
My mom and I went and visited Laurie's while she was here and right outside on clearance she has these lamps for $50 a piece you can see the original price below. They are so heavy and nice. I do need to open up the bottom and clean the glass it seems some dust got in there hence the great price. I was so happy thought because they are so me.
I have so much to share!! We have a big renovation going on with our stairs so excited for the final outcome. It is going to look so beautiful!!

office sneak peak

The changes are coming and I am loving it. It is starting to feel like our home. Each week I like to tackle at least one project. When I am all done I can go back to a little relaxing and projects here and there. This wallpaper came off very nice unlike the mudroom area. I could not decide what to do with the book shelves but decided stay with the darker wood. Sometimes when you paint wood and you use it a lot without lots of polyurethane it still chips. Rob uses his office about 3 days a week so it had to be durable. I love white but I figured the dark would not show dirt and I love mixing dark wood and white together. All the molding took a long time but I am happy how it all turned out. I will post more pictures soon when I actually clean it and decorate it up a bit more.
I can't tell you how great it feels to rip down 80's wallpaper

I love this stain! This is one of my favorite stains ever!! It is so nice because it goes on like a gel. You can use it thinner or thicker. It makes any pieces of old furniture look fresh again. It is a pain to get off your hands but I have found that orange oil or Goo Gone works well to get it off the skin. I will never be a poster child for nice nails. I see so many girls with pretty nails and It will not work out for me and all my endeavours I am afraid.

Still messy but much better!!

Things have been crazy here. We are working on re-doing our whole kitchen. What a project!! I have meet with so many different people and have looked at so many pictures. Next week I have another appointment so I will blog about some of the plans. I am hoping things start to come together and we can find a design we just love.

Have a great weekend!!
