(Pardon the mess. Redecorating in process..)
I've mentioned before how much I detest the faux finish in our living/dining room. It has been a thorn in my side for two and a half years. That's way too long. Don't mock my pain. It's very real.
I mean, check this out:
What color is that? I named it Effervescent Poopstain.
Well, we finally got permission from the landlord to paint. My mom was there in about five seconds with her painting clothes on and yards of plastic drop cloths.
And thanks to her and my sister, Jenny, this is now the beauty I get to daily behold:
These bookcases are totally on their way out. They were like 20 bucks at Target ten years ago. On the lookout for super cool/vintage bookcases to paint!
I adore it. Before the walls were painted I had begun to question my decorating style. I was all maybe I don't know what I'm doing with my decor. But now, I'm like THIS is what I was doing! It makes sense!
The next project to be conquered was the nursery. First we kicked the 33-year-old out. Seriously, we love you, Megan. We also got permission to paint these walls! Wahoo! Once again, Mom came with her plastic drop cloths and paint rollers and painted the heck out of that nursery.
Yep, cat's outta the bag! This is bubba's name.
We got the stroller and car seat and the baby shower is next weekend! I am almost 37 weeks so this is all a bit by the skin of our teeth! But as of next Sunday, baby can come!
