I’M YOUR DIY QUEEN

As the summer is coming to a close and we are all preparing for the fall, I moved… upstairs.  Not the most drastic of moves I have ever made, but it still happened.  I successfully dibs-ed the nicest bedroom in the house: hereby named “the nicest room in the house” because of its THREE windows.  The only real problem I was facing was the wall color: best described as a baby lime who happened to puke itself all over my new abode.

Jordan and I equipped ourselved with Walmart’s cheapest paint ($7 a can) in the colour of “Tea & Honey” which I imagine to have been created thusly:

… and we commenced to paint.  We even got really serious and painted the window frames and doors.  Our efforts endud up being an all day affair- we just stopped to make a quick run to the Home Depot for more door paint and huge plants- and yes, we showed up to the depot in old man shirts and painted hair.  Despit looking like swamp witches, we have fun:

And, if you care to make your own pathetic-sounding drumroll…. HERE is the finished result!
