This is how we do it

Getting started at home depot, making final decisions on color:

While painting, listening to this:

Since I was doing minimal parenting, Lilly's room then looked like this:

However, I finished painting a WHOLE room by myself in a day, which is a feat for me.  And here tis:

The Living Room

My living room has been a work in progress for some time now.  For those who know me, it has been a bit of an obsession for a while.  (as with many other projects in my house)  We've been in our house for 5 years now and this room has evolved quite a bit.  Here it is as it stands today:

It's getting there, but not quite where I want it yet.  Sooooo, I have finally decided to quit the procrastinating and do it.  I've been talking about painting the room for about a year now and this blog has inspired me to get a move on!  I've chosen a paint color and now just to take everything off of the walls. Stay tuned....

New to me

Allow myself to introduce myself.  (if you get that quote, I know that we will get along great) I am a mother to two wonderful little girls and a wife to an awesome husband who makes me laugh every day.  I have a passion for the arts, specifically interior design, but we'll throw in a little art, fashion, and music as well.  So bear with me while I get adjusted to this blogging thing (I know, I'm so 2008).  I'm going to give it a try and see how it goes!
