The part where I go off on a menstrual-induced rambling tangent...

So, I've painted 2 1/2 walls. I'm off to bed to finish the other 1 1/2. I had forgotten that Patrick always does the top 2 inches of our walls... so our walls currently have no paint up top. Super. Also, I ordered these dressers tonight. I TOLD you that I was in a spending mood! AND I bought 2 new lamps (on sale) at WalMart today. And I plan on getting new picture frames and some artwork. I am SICK of having a crappy bedroom. We deserve a room that doesn't have all of the cast-offs from other rooms and other people's homes. If it doesn't match the room, it is NOT coming back in the house. And if it has a sword or Lego arms or squeaks or growls when you squeeze it, it does NOT belong in MY bedroom. (nothing nasty intended) ALSO, I intend on going totally Trading Spaces and making my headboard. I am thinking of waiting for the big thaw and less mud so that I can traipse through the woods ( ALONE ) and gather twigs and branches so that I can nail them to a frame. Yes. I am going to do it. And I will keep the laundry hamper OUT of our room. I am really liking it in the hallway. If the house is a mess, at least I can get away from it at nighttime, right? Right. And I want candles. THAT MATCH. And I will frame some of our valentine/anniversary/just cuz cards or notes. In frames THAT MATCH. And they will be hung in a purposeful manner so that one does not feel like they are visiting a college dorm room. And I will figure out how to close our closet door (I guess cleaning the closet would be a good idea?) so that the room will be more romantic. And I will enjoy it immensely!

But first I have to finish painting the walls.

WOW. You are gettin' after it, huh? That rocks. I need to do my room SO bad too. I know it is suppose to be a sanctuary, but mine is the furthest from the truth. I long for a room like that.

I love those dressers. And you are TOTALLY going to have to take a picture of that headboard. It sounds cool and I will TOTALLY be impressed if you DO end up making it!!!

LOL I totally hear you on this one. I am wanting to re-do my bedroom too. It's time for MY room to get some attention. hehe I want to see that headboard...you better take some pictures! I want to be ON Trading Spaces..but I'm guessing they don't come to po-dunk towns like mine. Oh well.

Wow! Can you come and paint my room next? Our bedroom is also the room that doens't get done up. How sad. And when that headboard is all finished I'm gonna need some pics because I cannot picture it!

YEAH for you!!! That is awesome, I get more done when I am feeling gggrrrrrrry than at any other time. (mentstral-induced grrriness for me)

ANYWAY......

Pics when you are done!!! Good luck on the headboard thing!!! I made Charles', but just padded and cloth covered a pc of leftover from the remodel. You'll feel awesome when it's all done!!

Hats off to you for starting all these. I've been meaning to repaint for about ... well, two years now.

Perhaps this Spring ... or, maybe Summer.

Hmm?

the dresser looks really nice; I bet it'll look great in your room! Take pictures when you're all down - sounds like you have a lot of good ideas!
