One Thing Leads To Another

Hey y'all! Sorry I have been MIA a lot lately! I have been super busy! Of course there is the normal kids, school, house, and job but I have also been working on some other projects as well. The armoire is finally done and has been moved into the guest room. I am still NOT ready for a full reveal though... I know such a tease... because well I did not like the back drop blue walls in there. The walls were totally throwing off the color of the armoire and thus began the process of choosing a new paint color for the guest room. I mean I could have asked The Hubster to drag it out into the yard so I could take pics but I am sure you can imagine how that conversation would have gone!:) 

So last night I went digging thru my MANY sample paints from SW and after three attempts ended up with Hopsack. I really really liked it but it was dark and so I had to wait and see till morning. 

Well morning came and I HATED Hopsack. It just was not the color I was going for and I felt made the space feel too small. So here is the final verdict! After school the boys and I picked up two gallons of SW Antique White and thus I have started the process of painting the guest room all so I can take pics of the armoire for y'all!;) Here you can see also see a few of the goodies I have purchased for the room.

She is one of my most fave items!! Not sure where she will end up in the room but I do love her!

And as if that was not enough I started playing out in the garage again with the slightly cooler weather we have been having all because I started this project! It is to highlight my items for sale for the local folks and if all goes well I may end up renting a space!:) Who knows though where it will lead.

So there ya have what I have been up to! What have you been up to?

  1. You tease!! Can't wait to see the final result. I'm in the process of picking out a new paint color for my new (daughter's old room) craft/sewing room. I hate picking paint. It's like picking comfy undies. Never know till you try it out.

  2. Wow, you are busy busy. Can't wait to see the reveal.

  3. Wow, thank you, Pamela, for repainting the guest room just so we can see the armoire in the best light possible! :) The Hopsack isn't bad, but I know sometimes the color makes a room darker than we want. I like the one you wound up going with. The pillows look great, too. Can't wait to see the full reveal!

  4. good luck with all your new projects! This weather is so nice. Looking forward to seeing pics of the finished armoire

  5. You sound so busy...I hope it turns out the way you want it too.
    Sounds like you are going to be even busier if you rent a space.
    Just wanted to come by and say hello

  6. I can't wait to see the reveal, busy lady ... I'm sure it will look fabulous!

  7. I'm sure your conversation with your hubby about moving the armoire to the backyard went about the same as mine did when I asked my hubby to move the piano upstairs! LOL! Didn't happen!
    You are the paintin'-est gal I know!!! :)

  8. You are a busy bee Pamela. I love the chippy angel too, she sure is pretty.

  9. hmm, those shutters look intriguing! I love the brown plaid blanket with the pillows and white table, i bet the room is going to be beautiful!

  10. I look forward to seeing the finished product! Love the "peak" of the armoire:) ~Kim
