1. Today, I focused on “the necessary” first and was able to get a lot of laundry done and 2 bathrooms cleaned and also checked off everything but 1 of my must To-Do’s for the week.
3. Went to the paint store…with 3 young children…today is not Wednesday so I will not tell you about how the baby screamed at the top of his lungs or that the 4 year old put on a 5 minute siren-cry show or even how the ‘responsible’ 7 year old instigated said crying…instead I will show you the paint swatches I picked out for the living room…which I think I’ve settled on setting up as a piano/music/reading room for now. I will also probably put the bookshelves from the office in there to make more room for a bigger homework area for daughter and the 4 year old who likes to do his ‘homework’ while she does hers and there’s just not enough space anymore.
I grabbed a bunch of different samples and idea books for inspiration.
I like these colors but not sure how I will end up using them. The red is from the family room accent wall and also the color of the curtains in the living room. I’m also thinking of using that green on the window/back door wall and kitchen instead of the too-plain color there now. (I have decorating ADD and got distracted from my mind wandered away from the living room)
I got so distracted that I even bought these for our bedroom. I spotted them for a good price at Dillons (I knew I shouldn’t have crossed over the threshold from the dairy section into the fantasy home decorating land.)
