Let's see...where were we? Oh, yes. Now I remember.
Well, I am here to tell you that my paint picking streak has been broken. It has taken me several days to fully accept my fate, but I will be re-painting the room. Boo to the hoo. The color I used for the top half, despite going on rather mint green-ish turned out lovely: a nice greige, if you will. The bottom color was a different story: instead of gray with green undertones, I got green with green undertones. Wahhhhh! **picture me cycling through the following emotions: denial, patience (that the color would dry gray), hopefulness (that the Painting Fairy would again visit), anger, acceptance, resignation**
So, even though I do hate the color, I did snap a few shots to share with all of you.
In attempt to complete a nice, easy project yesterday, I attempted to swap out the boob light in the kitchen with a sweet semi-flush mount light that matches our pendents. Long story short, I wrestled with the electrical, jerry-rigged the mounting bracket (because if I know anything about electrical it's that what you have in your wall/ceiling never works with what comes in the box), hung the fixture, and patched and painted the ceiling since the new footprint was much smaller than the old one. Then, I stood back to admire my hard work and decided that I don't like the fixture. All I could do was laugh. At myself, of course. So, I suppose some night this week, I will undo all of that and put the boob light back up. Meh. Worse things could happen. At least it's my own fickleness that is causing all the extra work. :)
And, because I hate to leave on such a negative note, behold the cuteness that I enjoy every day:
