One Down, Three to Go!

Greetings, Sprouting Sunflowers!

You may recall that in an earlier post from Budapest, I listed four resolutions to complete upon returning home. One of those was to add some bright orange or yellow to our already overly-painted house. So, yesterday I wasted no time in racing back and forth to the hardware store three times, dropping more cash than K needs to know on paint samples and supplies, and getting to work.

I could have paid extra for the toxin-free paint, which is something responsible Mommies and Knocked Up women might do. But since I am neither, I said screw it and went for the good old fashioned, braincell-killing cheap stuff. This whole messy, expensive endeavor was my idea, not Kevin's, so he stayed out of it.

Before: Green and dark, like a forest filled with depressed trolls.

After: Happy yellow, like a sun-drenched meadow filled with butterflies on Ecstacy!

After I hung up our paintings from Ecuador, I felt so giddy, I momentarily forgot about dead babies!

Tebow helping.

Hey have been reading your blog for a few days now and really enjoying it.

Love the overhaul, makes the room look SO much bigger :)

Can I just say though - it's not natural to have that much energy, lol.

Seriously though, good job!

Wow - that makes such a difference!!! I feel happier just looking at those pictures - I can only what the effect must be in person!

Oh, I just love that orange. It's so happy. It does remind me of some places I've stayed at in Ecuador... good times. : ) I want to paint our walls orange too now! (even though I can't since we're renting our apartment)

Thanks all for the feedback! Sweetpea, you should do it - pick a wall and paint it orange. u can repaint it white later when you need to.
