Not a whole lot.
Normally when I go at a room, I don't stop until it's done.
This time, I was more like...
"Eh. What's the rush?"
I mean, it's not like we've been doing this for over a year or something.
I took a break from the 2nd coat of paint on the trim.
Painting walls and trim just doesn't do it for me.
Give me a chair any day!
And if you knew how much I hate painting chairs...
But we did get Eva's new light fixture hung.
OH MY GOSH!
I'll just tell you what I told Eva after Scott put it up...
"Sweet girl, I just want you to know that
I am going to be so jealous of your room when we get it done.
Do you think I could just come in here and sleep with you,
so I can wake up in here?"
She just grinned at me.
I think she liked it.

Since the kids had a three day weekend,
I decided that I would just chill on the painting
until they started back to school today.
Saturday, I indulged my desire to make a few things for her walls...
And that was FUN!
Sunday, I taught the Pre-K class at our church and then spent the afternoon glued to the computer watching Ian and Noah wrestle at Regionals, since I couldn't be there.
(Shouting at the computer just isn't the same as being mat-side. LOL!)
Monday, I spent the entire glorious day with Scott -
which doesn't happen very often...
(Running errands, grocery shopping, and bidding jobs
counts as quality time right? LOL!)
And we made a trip to Jo Ann Fabrics for something I am so
super excited to try out, that I can hardly stand it!
(NOTE: Do not buy 30 yards of fabric in the presence of your husband. That's one errand best left when you're alone
because NO amount of explaining will make him understand
WHY you need so much. Believe me, Men just don't "get it". HA HA HA!)
2nd coat of paint on the trim...
Priming and Painting the floors...
(That's today and tomorrow.)
Painting her new-to-us bed and desk...
and FINALLY I will get to start putting it all together...
I'm hoping for a reveal on Friday... Hoping.
So, that's where I'm at.
But, I have a quick question...
Eva wants her desk painted a color
that's not in the color scheme of the room.
Technically, it wouldn't clash, but I'm debating.
Should I paint it the color she wants it
should I stick with the other colors in the room???
Any advice would be great!
And I know I can always count on you guys
to give me some GREAT advice!
P.S. If you don't hear from me during the next few days,
you'll know that means I'm making LOTS of progress! ;)
