Painting/decorating/being a mommy

Painting, decorating and being a mommy, all three at the same time is pretty interesting! I won't even tell you what happened with Ava Beth and the paint! Thank goodness we were in the kitchen! No, I am not finished yet! But, I decided to go ahead and start hanging pictures. Jeremy will flip out when he finds out I did this without the laser level. I would not be surprised if he re-hung them while I am not looking. Oh sure I could use the laser level but why not do it the old fashion way and just use my eye?! Of course I won't be able to do this with some stuff but I will wait for his help on those.

So here it is! The kitchen paint is done and the color is "Gold Coin" from Wal Mart. The Living area and the half bath is "Hoot Owl" from Wal Mart. I've used Lowe's pain and Home Depo before and Wal Mart is just as good (But, don't get the cheapest. Get the middle brand)! I am really loving the brown. This weekend we are going to make some cornice boards for the windows (Jeremy won't mind. He gets to use his table saw! Any excuse for him to use power tools in the garage!) so, now I have to find some fabric. Oh but this is fun! I love doing all this stuff and I know I will feel a lot better when it's done. For the past two and a half months I have had a huge pile in the corner in my living room filled with pictures and decor that have yet to find their place. Finally, I'm getting it done.

I'm so excited to see it all coming togather. I know it's going to look beautiful!
If you need any help or just a second opinion on where to hang things let me know.
Hope you have a great day!

Ummm... are you for sale?! Seriously, I wish I had an eye for this stuff, especially since we're getting ready to move into our first house. =) (Are you up for a trip to Colorado?!)

You have an amazing job! I love the colors and the wall prints! Beautiful job!!

Good job! I love the colors. I painted my kitchen (in the house we are renting)the same color and it makes me so happy! It is so bright and cheerful. And I have some coffee pictures hung on the wall...looks like we have similar taste. Painting really helps make it feel more like your own place, that is so important to do!
