A long time ago in a land far away when I first started writing this blog….

…..my farmhouse bathroom was featured on a really really big website.

I couldn’t believe it.

I was so excited and told anyone who would listen and called my mom and my sister-in-law and several random neighbors to tell them the news.

It was the best thing to happen since sliced bread….

….and spray-on self-tanning lotion. :) Continue reading

5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Paint Color

5 Tips for Picking the Perfect Paint Color

 

five-tips-for-picking-the-perfect-paint-color

I have wanted to write an updated post about the paint colors from the house for the longest time.

Truly.

And I have been remiss.

So in a vain attempt to make up for the complete and utter lack of paint color discussion…..I thought I would provide completely unsolicited advice on the ins and outs of choosing a paint color.  You know I couldn’t just write a post about paint colors…..I have to offer up a big opinion.  However…..I preface any and all big opinions offered here with the disclaimer that……I am not an expert.

I don’t work for a paint company.

I have not gone to paint color school.

What I am…..though…..is so much better.  I am the person who has painted and repainted and repainted rooms because I couldn’t figure out the answer to this simple question,  “Why did the paint color in the store not look like the paint color on my wall?”

If you are a paint color expert….this post is not for you.

What’s A Mom to Say?

 

If you are a member of the anti-wood painting club.

This is not the post for you.

If you have a visceral reaction to white, painted wood.

Cover your eyes and look away.

Quickly.

And don’t be a hater.

 

Oh wait.

I forgot.

The last time I said that on the blog, my son told me not to say it anymore.Continue reading

I Am So Over It


I am so going on Facebook and unfriending the plumbing in our house.  Then I’m changing my status to “disappointed in you.”

Plumbing….you are on notice….this relationship is officially over.

I just don’t think I can be friends anymore.

At this point, I am so over it.

Really.

I am so over leaking.

I am so over drain pipes and wet drywall and water where it shouldn’t be.

I am so over this.Continue reading
