How I spent my Sunday…

Saturday night I decided that I would paint my dinning room the next day.  Now this wasn’t a spur of the moment decision this is just one more step in getting the house updated.  So I started moving out as much as I could, played Battleship with my son, and finished moving out the rest of stuff.

Sunday, I made coffee, posted on Facebook what my plan was, gathered all my supplies, checked Facebook to see who commented on what my plan was, gathered all the supplies that I forgot that I needed and them looked to the ceiling.  Yep, I had to paint the ceiling, see why I kept checking Facebook?  I really dislike painting the ceiling but it had to be done.  When we moved in the whole house was the same color. the ceiling and wall all painted some ugly dirty looking beige.  Time for a while ceiling…


It looks so much better now.  I then ran to Home Depot and pick out the wall color. Now this has been the hardest thing for me to do.  This year I have puchase so much paint and had it not work out, and yes I tired out the samples on large patches of walls through out the house.  The first color was perfect but when it went on it had a purple color to it, the second one was perfect to and nice medium brown, but when it went on it looked more battleship gray!  So this color is a beautiful moca color and looks perfect in the dinning room.  This will be the color that I will use though the rest of the house…

Hubby is getting the baseboards down and doing the finishing work.  He should finish tomorrow and I’ll be able to put everything back in.  

The last things for this room will be a free standing pantry and a table. I would like to find a round table maybe counter hight but that seems harder to find then I though.  

I’ll keep you posted.
