Polka-Dots Make Me Happy!

Sorry I went MIA!  I didn’t mean to be gone so long but you know how that goes.

Continuing with my mini home makeover, I’m tackling all the things in my house that I have painted black.   After we moved into this house in 2007, if something sat still long enough, it got painted black.  Looking around my house now, I’m determined to brighten things up!

If you love polka dots (who doesn’t) and lots of color you will love the dresser in my entry now!

You can also see in the after picture my new wall color by Valspar which is Gray Silt.  I love it!  Ok I will be back soon with more progress!

I work well under pressure.

Really I do.

I am not showing you the before picture!

Because frankly my kitchen was 4 different colors. It was pure embarrassment!

When we moved in the kitchen was a sage green. Well I have fiestaware and I didn’t really think the sage went very well with it. So I painted it a pea/lime green. Decided that was a bit too green and thought I wanted a warmer color. Then came the Texas Longhorn orange. O did I mention in all of this that I never finished the entire kitchen while painting. So seriously all the colors were showing in different spots.

It was really, really, embarrassing.

Then this brings us to last night. I have had a gallon of “pottery glaze” paint for about a month now just waiting to have a kitchen all one color. We have company coming to see our new house for the first time so I knew that I had to get the kitchen one color at least.

Christmas is what…A WEEK AWAY? OMGoodness panic mode!

I started painting last night around 7 p.m. and like a champ I hung in there and got the job done!

Time to sit back and admire it now….well or finish other tasks that have been waiting even longer to be finished. It is a never ending process when you live with and OCD project started like me.

So lets just relax at work today and admire my new kitchen.

I tell ya there is always something.

I will have some more pictures when I find some art for the kitchen. My theme is really coffee, brown and teal. The pears will go as soon as I have more coffee things.

I have been a busy little bee lately. I am in the process of painting my bedroom, I am 99.9% done. I still have to finish painting my bed and then hang a few more things on the wall.

I’m obsessed with owls lately! I love them! I made this little guy out of paper to hang in the new room.
