Red HOT and Clean!!!

Painting Part Two --

You may think it odd to continue our painting adventure in, of all places, the laundry room! Once you realize this is a mudroom that all five of us trapse through every day, you'll understand why it was next! The walls in this room were getting so messed up and my efforts to clean them removed more paint than dirt. I don't like doing laundry -- in fact, I'd say I pretty much abhore it so I wanted to make the laundry room someplace fun and inviting.

What is a girl to do then, but paint it her favorite color!!


This is a color by Kilz called Red Ginseng. I love the slight brown undertone that makes it seem less glaring and more grown up!

We camped out in the backyard!

Here Jacob enjoys a toasted marshmellow.

Our friend Ben was able to spend the night with us too. He started Kindergarten this week!

Some of James marsh got a little toasty haha

Bye Bye Builder Beige!

Bye Bye Builder Beige!!

We moved in at the end of May and one thing became clear very quickly -- Builder Beige had two problems!

A) It's Beige -- everywhere
B) It is NOT kid friendly. We quickly saw that painting was something that would have to happen sooner than later.

Here is phase 1 -- The hallway and half bath

Miss Suzanne was hanging out in the half bath during picture time :-)
