Well, two lovely friends came by, worked with me, and cleaned out that room! Thank goodness I have friends who know how to get a hard job done. I'm the type who can't see the trees for the forest and just shuts down. Teresa and Robyn came to my rescue in early April and spent hours helping me organize, toss, donate, and clear leaving me this lovely, pretty much empty room.
Robyn gave me two of her days off to come and paint! I was so grateful when she offered ages ago to paint with me. Because my husband is such a great painter, I have never really picked up the brush or roller. However, Michael is so busy with other work and home improvements, I didn't want to ask him to repaint the downstairs just because I wanted new colors. Robyn came with supplies and lunch on Thursday, and we primed away. I got great practice rolling with the primer.
Friday, we were back at it, and voila! One step closer to my vintage, shabby chic, robin's egg blue office. My paint choice is Lowe's Valspar Playful Pool - 5005-7C. Actually, I have to put one more coat up, but I was exhausted and have been transcribing all weekend when not doing errands.
Thank you, Robyn and Teresa, for helping me get this much closer toward my new office.
MUST SHOW OFF CHILDREN, CAN'T HELP IT!
My son was asked to the prom by a friend at a neighboring school. I haven't asked if I can post her picture, but I had to show off Michael in a tux!
Camille was invited to a masquerade dance. She happened to have purchased this mask while in Louisiana over the Christmas holidays on a Habitat For Humanity mission she participated in.
