So...did you get some paint? Huh? Did ya? Yeah, I know, flat paint sucks. I have my own theory on flat paint I'll talk to you about soon. I did buy some paint to repaint our den -- one gallon of flat for the ceiling and another in eggshell for the walls. I have a growing obsession with painting ceilings and I'll show you that soon too!
I hope your Valentine's Day was GREAT! Hubby was out of town, but sent me these:
Awwwwww! I know! The problem with roses, plants...any live, green, growing things in our house is this guy:
The little poop. I swear he was supposed to be a bunny. He can't get enough of leaves. And lettuce. I can't have a plant in this whole house because of him. Good thing he's cute. He also likes to eat these:
This cat has about 35 lives instead of the regular nine, I swear to you. He loves to eat ribbons and hair ties. Gah.
I did a quick project in our den over the weekend, in between breaking my neck painting the ceiling and destroying my back painting the room. I recently moved most of my son's toys to another room in the house, and I'm thrilled with the change. (I'll show you that soon too!) Since I am enjoying having our office back so much, I've been trying to think of easy ways to update what we already have in there, and my first project was these shelves:
Ack! That fabric! I could just DIE. I. love. it. I have gone back to Joann's TWICE and it's GONE!!!!!!!!!! Who out there took it?? Who? I will find you. I must have more.
The foam board was three bucks for three boards, the fabric was about $5 for a yard of the fabric. Try it on your shelves or built ins! I love to make the back of built ins pop by painting them, but I think I may like this fabric idea even more!
P.S. Actually, the title of the post is a little misleading. It will probably take about 40 minutes. But "Forty minutes and ten bucks!" doesn't sound nearly as good.
P.P.S. Ah! I haven't forgotten about the questions! I'll answer them this week, I swear!
