Before...

My oh my, have we been busy! Lots of showers, thank you notes, planning and cleaning. Every day (did you catch that, June?) we have been blown away by our friends' and family's generosity! Thank you, everyone! Here is one of many photos from our shower at Kendra's on Saturday...I can't wait to use my gift card to My First Kitchen!

This weekend, I decided to start the overhaul on one of our guest bedrooms. You know, in all my free time. It is definitely going to take some time to get it just right, especially since I threw my original plans for the room completely out the window. So, here's a shot of the before... it is so ugly, I couldn't bear to be close to the room...


Yes, electric lime/yellow walls with a fluorescent orange closet. You have to believe me when I say I love my house... We loved it so much that we could quickly overlook this putrid room. Stay tuned for "Almost After" photos!

Oh girl, I know. We bought our house despite it's lime green/purple motif throughout. Yikes.

Yay! Thank you for your correct use of "every day."

Why would anyone paint a closet orange?

Kimba said...

Hey girl! You guys are so adorable! I'm excited for you.

I can't wait to get back down there so I can take one of Kendra's classes.

And I'd be tempted to leave the closet orange. It's good for a laugh. :-)

The floors are really nice! A little paint can change any room - I love paint! I know you have made it beautiful!
