Blogging used to be a daily thing for me. Wake up, wash up, blog. Somewhere along the line I got out of the habit. I thought life was busy when the bigs were little. Shocker, I think it's busier now.
This past weekend we updated Kenzie's room...for the last time...Since we have lived in this house (13.5 years) we have painted Kenzie's room 4 times. Her little kids room, which was a soft sage, her 10-12 year old room which was brown and blue (because that was what I liked then), her tween room -- apple green and purple -- and finally her mature teen room...a soft silver gray. Love it. By far my favorite! What did we do before Pinterest? I let her look through my neutral color palettes and she landed on gray, and then Stoneington Gray. Which, I'm sure, had my father spinning in his grave. I wanted to be sure there was no color issues so rather than what I normally do and have a batch whipped up at Home Depot I bought the real thing - Benjamin Moore. At Ace Hardware. For about a zillion bucks a gallon. I was shocked. I've never spent so much on paint. And I KNOW my father never did.
Kenz and I had so much fun painting together. She was such a help. My dad, a painter by trade, would have rally enjoyed watching us. Hey, and I only stepped in the paint tray once! ;)
Kenzie is over the moon with the results. After painting and putting her furniture in, we draped white Christmas lights across the walls. She is so happy. I'm glad. You should enjoy your space. Now, of course, I'm wanting to redo my master bedroom in the same color. Pretty sure that will wait until next year. I'm going to need some time to recover.
Below is the finished product, at night, with lights all aglow.
On to Christmas celebrations! Cathy arrives Wednesday and Topher is joining us on Tuesday. Should be a good time!
