I will start by showing you our playroom. Now, your first thought will probably be, 'Oh my gosh! I cannot believe she would show such a picture!' However, my first thought is that if you see what this room looks like now, ANYTHING I do will be an improvement. Don't you agree?
My cousin, Lauran, always posts blogs about the home projects she is working on and I so want to be her when I grow up. (Let's just pretend I'm not older than her.) She has the greatest ideas and does the cutest little collages to show them off. You can check out her blog at The Ellis Nest. But back to my room, I'm going to share my vision with you. The colors will be white, black and lime green. Yes, that red curtain, is going to GO! I have a bookcase that was my Dad's that I am in the process of spray painting lime green. I worked on it today but I'm going to have to buy some more paint. It makes me think of Kermit everytime I see it. I haven't decided if that is good or not. I will talk more about this room in another post and give you before and after shots. I hope. Please let there be after pictures!!!
Overheard in the backyard of the pastorium:
Your friendly neighborhood preacher says,
This china cabinet won't even be recognizable when we're done! And I really, really hope I mean that in a good way....
Stay tuned for after pics. Our families are coming to spend Easter day with us and these projects WILL be done!
