Well, life has been busy! Full of regular busy-ness like school, soccer, dance, errands, and self-imposed busy-ness like home improvement. Last Saturday I had three projects in the works for Russell (hey- someone's got to supervise) including but not limited to the following:
- adding a panel of some sort to the bar to take away the church-podium appearance
- adding another shelf to our coat closet so we have more space for coloring supplies
- painting the laundry room, because I see it a lot and it is one room in the house that hasn't had the Erin touch since moving in
We accomplished # 3. Yay! I really wanted to paint something dark brown because it's a color I haven't used yet. Our laundry room is our entrance from the garage and it triples as a pantry, coat room, and laundry room. The previous owners had painted the whole thing sage green (not offensive in any way) but the trim was also green and there was a border that was starting to fall off. So I painted the trim white and Russell painted the room "warm brownie". How can you not like a color with such a name? I wonder who gets the fun job of a paint color namer. They get to be so poetic and fun. "Lava falls", "apple frost", "fresh water" and "lover's kiss" are some of my favorites.
It's in no way a beautiful room, but it serves its purpose! Is it a nasty brown or is it okay? Whatever you think, we can't change it for at least a year....so learn to like it! (I was able to convince Russell after all!)
I collect paint strips. So many fun colors!
Yay for projects!
