Wow, 4 Whole Days? Impressive.

Ok, so the truth? I haven't been "not posting"--I've actually just been extremely busy, and I KNEW that if I sat down to the computer even for a second, my work would NEVER get done. First, I cleaned the house. Not a big deal to some, but for me? a huge feat! Next I unpacked and organized the crap room (aka my craft room). I bought shelves and storage boxes for ALL.MY.STUFF. And then we got rid of the ugly swan and flower looking chandelier. Next up? Painting! Lots of painting.

Goodbye ugly green walls. Goodbye flower wallpaper.
Goodbye pink walls. (and ugly green carpet? and ugly pink wallpapered kitchen and bathroom? You're next!)









*I think the "before" and "after" pictures are pretty obvious, so I'm not going to explain any further.

(And mostly because my kids have been spoiled over the past 4 days of my recoup from nablopomoshmo that they are currently threatening to end each other's lives over an orange crayon and a plastic horse. Seems perfectly logical to me, but I better intervene.)

  1. I would say that you have been WAY busy! Your house looks great. Doesn't it feel awesome when you finally finish a task as daunting as that?

    I love before and after photos!

    So tell me is it wrong I don't want my husbands help painting our exercise room. We were just priming yesterday and I was so critial of how he was painting. I'm pretty sure we are going to hate each other after this project.

  10. Wow - can you come visit me?

    When the new bathroom sink comes in, I need to repaint the bathroom and I'm not sure what color it should be.

    That looks great!

  11. OOHHHHHHH, Did you get the shelves? 'Cause I can see how they go with your AFTER pics.

    Dude. Your couch? Is on my FAVE list. I LOVE THAT COUCH. I've seen it somewhere (can't remember) and begged mr. Flinger for it.

    LOVE the new place.
