Finally Getting to the Finish Line!!
Hi! I am a Marine Mom, and I'll stop right there cuz I could talk for hours about my boy! Anywho, I was in the cold state of NC when I became disabled. I try not to let it stop me, but the cold weather is a killer. So..dot, dot, dot, I told my son that I had to get out of the cold. I was heading south to Florida. His words to me were "Mom. You've already done your job. You've raised me, and I'm doing
I hated the brown color. Always have. And I found some contact paper on eBay that I just fell in love with. Now all I had to do was figure out my colors.
Off to Walmart I went. I found a Primer/Base that was less than $15, so I grabbed 2 and picked out my color and then I picked up a gallon of white to complement the whole thing. I was so excited, I couldn't stand myself.
And then I got the FLU.
I had already taken the flu shot. But so much for that. My roommate also picked up the bug. You didn't think I was going to suffer alone did you? Silly burd! It took me a month before I got back up on my feet.
Anywho.... Other than the curtains, of which I have yet to get hung, everything is. Done. We have talked about putting a clear coat on the cabinet doors and drawers. Eehh... We just might.
But here's the final finished room. And I think I'm going to sleep in here tonight!!
The red shelf over the stove was brown, but I wanted to add something different. So, there ya go. My son made me the shelf when he was a teenager, and it holds salt and pepper shakers that are from my Grandma and my Great Grandma!!
I can't say total time, because we took that break when we were dieing!!!
Would I do it again? In a New York minute. But for now, we're heading into the living room. One blue wall is already done.
I've been dieing to do a picture wall like the one I saw here a while back. As soon as we get the walls painted in rest of the room (a light gray) I'm going to start on my wall. I'm so excited I could just p in my pants!!
Almost forgot! I finally got my pots and pans hung up and...
My tea pots!!

- Contact Paper (eBay)
