Can you say exhausted?



Today, I painted Tayler's room...finally! He picked out his colors before we moved in over 18 months ago! The colors are the Patriots blue. You can buy team colors at Home Depot. I painted the room once in only two hours and was quite impressed with myself. When I went back up to check on it, it was obvious it needed two coats! I was pretty frustrated! Oh yea, I also knocked over about 1/4 of the paint...nice.

But, other than that, it was alright. I am satisfied now that it is finished. (with the exception of the trim as you can see) We are going to do a mural of the Patriots symbol but that will be about another month or so. We have two rooms down and four more to go before the baby comes. I can't wait until the day that I can post pics of our bedroom actually getting painted along with a new bedroom set. Did I say new? I mean FIRST bedroom set. We have never had one!! I have never had one period! I hope we can get one before the baby comes...b/c as we all know, once the baby comes, all attention and money goes towards the baby! (which is a good thing, I just want my room done first...is that selfish?)

So, here are the pics...hope you can make them out.

Looks great, Karin! The top pic turned out good... the bottom one is dark.
And no! It's not selfish at all to paint your own bedroom before the baby comes :) We are soooo glad that we've painted ours. It makes it such a relaxing "retreat".
