.....the parents.......ummmmm........have been.......
REDECORATING! Actually, we have been painting. This is a project much easier done sans kids.
So, the white walls in the girls' room have been getting to me for a while. Couldn't think of a more perfect time to remedy that than while they are having a blast at the grandparents' house.
We came up with a color called "Fresh Pears". It's bright and cheery and goes perfectly with their comforter. (This needs a second coat)
My poor husband has a phrase that he uses everytime we try to tackle a task such as this. "Everything is a project." I feel really bad for him. He is right.
A few years back we put up bead board paneling and have regretted it ever since. We should have spent the extra money and purchase solid wood. We were trying to save time and money....and that was a mistake. This paneling is forever coming away from the wall. Liquid nails aren't all they are cracked up to be.
Eric attempted to "fix" the problem and this morning I hear, "You suck! I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!" Not a nice way to wake up.......although, he wasn't talking such smack to me....he was talking to a wall.......not a perverbial one (cuz that would have been me....:) No, it was a real wall that wasn't cooperating. The paneling just doesn't want to obey. So, in Tim-the-Tool-Man-Taylor fashion, this is what the wall looks like right now.......
Finished room pics will come in a few days.....:)
