We have been painting the walls and they look so good. It feels like a new house.. and We are not done yet.. We are going to paint the rest of the inside,making each section a project.. I am so excited.. It's a lot of hard work, but we are so glad we did.. The kids are excited about our new look.So am I.. Maybe, I will sneak the office camera one day, when I'm done and take some photos..lol




I hope all of you have a good week. It's actually been very pleasant outside, as far as the weather.. The kids are enjoying school.




Bunches of hugs......

What a sweet Maya Angelou saying.

Isn't it amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do?

Oh, doesn't painting make you feel so differently about your home? I love a fresh paint job! Makes me feel like it is sooooo clean! I started painting my bedroom a couple years ago....still have one wall to do yet! LOL That's the way it goes when you get old and are alone. I'll get it done someday! Your home will feel so good with new paint. There's just something about fresh paint! You guys are so ambitious! Send some of that ambition my way! LOL

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Steph,

I love to paint and look at a brand new paint job. It is hard work, but doesn't it look sooo good when you are finished?

Color matters and gives a home it's character.

One time, my sister painted her kitchen pink. Then she put up trim border where wall meets ceiling. It looked good at first, and then after about 4 years, she decided that it looked like 'crap'. lol

Now it is a antique white.

Goes to show how our personal tastes change, probably about as often as we need to paint.

Have a good week..:)

Yes new paint is a definite mood lifter!

Hey Stephanie,

After you do Laura's house, you can come and do mine, too. lol.

Actually, we did paint the kitchen recently, and it looks so nice and fresh.

Our weather has been beautiful. There is a hint of fall in the air.

Have a wonderful week!

Hugs,

Renie
