Do, Do, Do, Another Stripe Bites the Dust!!!


No more stripe painting until I buy heavy gel medium for nice, crisp lines. But it's a start.

I call it- WONKA FLAGE!!!







I allowed Ivan to pick out the colors of his camo wall, and you'll see the paint samples in the last picture. The purple WAS going to be my bedroom color, but I may change my mind. I'm proud of his selection, and think they are strong selections.

Hey Shorty, it's my Birfday!!!




The Beginning of Ro's Stripes


More colors will be added, but this is what I was able to get done today. I like it!!! I really do like the crispness of the white, but NOT EVERYWHERE!!!

Fun at the Park, Happy 8 Month B-day, Ro!!!

So much for having a sunken family room, Ro found the escape route.

More Slowly but Surely Work... Next, the Boys Rooms!!!











Vegas Vic had to get a lil rehab to not look silly with his primary colors against my nice, mature colors.

More Zen


And the Winning Color is... Zen




I loved the other 2 colors, but the orange reminded me too much of the brown of the sofa and carpet, and the yellow green you could not tell the difference at night. So Zen is the color, it will also be in Ro's room eventually.

And the Fan Won...


Ro is the more... Adventurous, of the two boys. Ivan was my "watch and learn" kid, like me. And I'm guessing Ro will be the skateboard down the hill kid like his daddy. Well, he met the floor fan today in our bedroom, and the fan sort of won. Right as I went to get him, he brought the fan down. Yeah...

Mr. Toothy Grin


The Final Three


Here are the final three color selections. I will get all three, the teal will also be used in Ro's room, the orange in Ivan's, and the green yellow maybe in the diningroom. I have learned I hate ladders, so I really don't know what I will be doing in the future for painting some nooks and crannies here. The orange was a color I wanted in my bedroom, but decided I hated it up there. Now what color will I use in the niches? I have no clue, it'll be a surprise. I might just eeny meeny miney moe it.

Daddy Finally got his New Chair

Is that Your Final Answer!!! I Think So...


Oh My Goodness... Narrowed to Four


UGH!!! I think I'm ready to decide, then it's like AH!!! I like the light yellow green, but then it's like, the blue is so tugging at my heart strings, but then there's the teals. Ohhh... I'm hoping Home Depot has a paint sale Labor Day weekend. Five dollars off would be AWESOME!!!

Ro Scratch Fever


This is how we woke to find Ro, undoubtedly another fight club night in the crib.

The Apology


Ivan was laying next to Ronin, cuddling, when Ro accidentally stuck a toe into Ivan's eye, I think. That's what Ivan told me. I reminded Ivan that Ro is little and doesn't know what he's doing, so Ivan went to hug Ronin and tell him he knew he didn't mean to be mean.

Paint Jobs Today- Mantle and Wet Bar Wall




Better Pic/Tile Comparison


I took the paint chips down to 6 and placed them next to tiles to see them together. Today I'll be painting one wall of the wet bar the taupe, I am trucking (I LOVE nap time).
