Here’s the truth about the situation in my son’s room…seriously looks like the day we moved in. I literally have not touched this room and my goal this back-to-school season was too give him more of a bedroom that suits his personality and style. The convo went like this…”hey Con, mind if I update your room a bit?…” he’s all…”yes, that would be great…but no “vintage” stuff…you like the old stuff…I like new stuff…” Those were my only directions….I think I can handle that…
The room does not have a whole heck of a lot of space but plenty for him. My goal is to maximize the space and make it a little bit more efficient and put together. The good thing is that I don’t have to paint the walls:) I am going to have a painter come and paint the ceiling White. I do love the Navy but it totally sucks the light out of the room and with only one window, this room definitely lacks light. Here is what I am working with….
Hey yall! Back to school time in full swing here! Bubs started on Friday and peanut starts on Wednesday. Tomorrow will be the last day that I get up and drive my people to school—wow…hard to believe. They will be taking turns driving each other to school. Helps out that their schools are down the street from each other. It is weird though. When they get their license there is this whole new freedom—not just for them…but for me too. It is nice….but at the same time it is just one more milestone that comes and goes too quickly. They are gaining independence…and that is a good thing. I am happy for them….and just a little sad to see another chapter close—but 95% happy…only a tad sappy:) I keep repeating the mantra…I am here to help them be happy, independent people—and driving is just one more step to them living their own lives…and for that I feel very blessed and grateful.
Hey there! How was your weekend? It was a scorcher here…thankfully I was inside this lovely air conditioned house most of the weekend. Thanks for stopping by to say hello:) Hard to believe that summer is more than half way over….we start up school again August 12th. I was hoping to get to the beach house again….seems that summer is so short!
I wanted to continue the tour today of Homearama house #15. I left off last week in foyer…and from that space you enter into the family room. We have heard the nicest compliments when folks enter this room…describing it as “warm, comfortable, livable and happy..” The first thing that will catch your eye is the massive white washed brick fireplace. We used the same technic that I used several years ago on my own brick fireplace. A watered down Pure White paint by Sherwin Williams is all we used…when it dried…the painter wire brushed some paint off to roughed it up more in spots. It turned out to be just the right texture of rough against our more “glam” lighting choices.
Hope your 4th was full of fun and fireworks. Our poor Stella girl was not a fan of all the booms and cracks in the sky all weekend.She’s thrilled that it’s over. Wrapping up Homearama house this week into next….we are on the home stretch! Hubs and I are sneaking away to the beach house for a bit first though. I need a bit of a get away;) The new beach bathroom is complete so I’ll be sharing pics of that real soon too:)
I walked the homearama house yesterday with my friend April who will be photographing the entire house so that I can share it all with you! I cannot wait to show you some of the unique features that we have put into this home.
(A little sneak peek at one ceiling that is a showstopper in our #homearamahouse15 home….I adore this entry space:)
What should I paint this room? Will it go with my other rooms? Will it go with my furniture? These are the TOP questions I am asked on a fairly regular basis. Often times it is the one reason why people do not start to update….they are stuck…very stuck at picking a paint color. I thought that I would share with you my top 10 go-to paint color choices that are super pleasing, play nice with others and all around just great people…er I mean paints:)
