A Sneaky Peaky

The day has finally come!
I am thrilled to say....
I am going to start painting the front room!
I don't know if you are like me but I don't feel like a house is mine until I get to re-do every room "MY" way.
We moved here 4 years ago.
The walls were all off white!
No offense to you girls who like that look
BUT, for me I need color, fun and pizzaz in my life!
Really, I thought when we moved here that I would like that style,
all white cottagey shabby chic!
I even painted most of my antiques white and shabbied them up a bit!
But .... It's just not me!
I am not feeling it!
So after much convincing I got hubby to let me do "my thing"!
He did agree to plaster and sand the walls for me.
Thank you hunny bunny....

I snapped these pictures real quick while he was pulling things off the walls!
I needed to show you before pictures!

Grab a paint brush and come on over!
Painting party @ Dollys Cherry Cottage!

See you soon with new pictures!

P.S. Update on mum......
Her kidneys are at a 2.5
Good if we can lower that number or keep it from going higher!
A 5 means dialysis.
She has gout in her foot.
Over all she said she feels great!

Painting my living room is a winter project (I hope I can get to by myself).. The colors your picked would be perfect for my room too..would that not be nice to copy??? I'm one of the boring off white/ white walls Gals and do not take offense at all LOL.
Again I can't wait to see you do your thing.. Way to go girl!

Good Golly Miss Dolly!
You are into a big project before the holidays! If your photo shows your paint choices, they are the same as my house! My house is mostly greens and shades of burgundy with off white trim. I knew I liked your tastes! Wish I could come up to help paint sounds like you could use a big hand! Hugs,Jan
