I can't stand it anymore!!!

My bedroom walls are what I'm referring too.  I painted the ceiling last year and was getting ready to paint the walls when I had some unexpected company and had to put everything away and then I got busy with other things but as I stated above..........I Can't Stand It Anymore!!!!!  I had to go to the vet and pick up Nitty's "pricey" food....they're so nice there.  They felt so bad about how expensive it is that they gave me a free pet candle!  The vet says he's complained to Hill's Science Diet all the time about the cost but to no avail.  I'm researching to see if I can find a less expensive alternative as I'm not sure I can really afford this although Nitty is doing great! 

Anyway, I spent last night on Pinterest and also on Miss Mustard Seed and was so inspired that I bought paint today to paint my bedroom!  Because I want to sell my house I was just going to focus on cleaning and clearing and organizing and not get involved in major renovations. I've already updated all HVAC, new roof, new washer and dryer...all the majors.  But meanwhile, I have to live here and I really believe in living joyfully  in the moment as none of us knows what lies ahead.  I also had a very "foretelling" dream  last night and when I realized what it truly meant it was like a light bulb that went off in my head.  I also got some divine inspiration which I will share down the road.   Soooooo...needless to say I went to Wal-Mart, since I was close by at the vet, and bought paint and supplies and an Easter ham with all the ingredients for my side dishes and dessert.
 Here's the color, Creamy Buttermilk and that says it all.  It's Glidden flat latex and although I love color I will be adding color in other ways and then whoever buys my house will have a neutral background to deal with and I'll have a freshly painted room to enjoy meanwhile. 

 I don't know if you can tell from this picture but the walls are a pale green and the carpeting is too so it is really ugly blah.  I guess some people want their bedrooms like that so it's calm for sleeping but me....I want sunny, happy, and joyful and this color is just not doing it for me! LOL!  Plus, it's old and dirty and needs a fresh coat.  You can see where I painted the ceiling and brought it down a bit onto the wall.  
 The weather was great today for being out and about, sunny and high 60's but now comes the Spring rains starting tonight through Monday.  We need the rain so I'm not complaining. For Easter, I'll be cooking up a "storm" literally with the weather and also painting my bedroom.  LOL!  I'll be doing one wall at a time since I use that room and tonight I will probably wash and spackle that one wall and paint it tomorrow and then hopefully be done with the entire room by the end of the Easter weekend.  
 I also finished a book for my Embarrassment of Riches Book Challenge of which I am way behind in! 

 This is the 4th in the series of mysteries by Maggie Sefton.  I love her books as they involve a cozy yarn shop and a wonderful group of friends.  She always has a great mystery plot and she's a good writer.  The kind of book you look forward to crawling in bed with at the end of the day.  It takes place in Fort Collins, Colorado and is based on a real shop there that the author frequents.  I'm going to try and see if they have a website.
So, there's my plans for the Easter weekend....what are yours? 


  1. Sounds like you've got a plan and are on a roll. Good luck getting the painting done. I painted our bedroom a sage green some years ago. A friend is here from Lebanon for the weekend so we are busy doing things with her and her husband. All while I'm fighting a cold that my husband had last week and passed on to me. Ugh! Best wishes, Tammy

  2. I would probably like that series of books. I read all the Blossom Street books by Debbie Macomber that were about a group of friends who met at a knitting shop. :)

  3. Sounds like you're all set for decorating. I'll admit it I love painting walls. There's nothing like a fresh coat of paint! If I was just down the road from you, I'd pop round and give you hand :)Spencer would love to pop round too! This Easter I'm hoping to have a quiet weekend. We've been very busy decorating my old house for a new tenant. So even though I love painting, I've had enough for a while ;) I'm hoping to plant some seeds, do some quilting, a little bit of housework and of course take Spencer for lots of walks! Happy Easter!

  4. Hope you have a wonderful Easter. I like nice and sunny and light to our bedroom is a nice sunny yellow so it feels like the sun is shining every morning I wake up, my kitchen is green and although fresh I'd love it to be red, I'm trying to convince my husband that we really need a red kitchen !! For Easter this year we have decided on beef for our dinner with all the trimmings and I'm making a strawberry pavlova as requested by the children, we sometimes have lamb but its quite expensive so we shall see. I've lots of baking to do tomorrow so today I need to press on with housework and get it out of the way. Your book sounds interesting and I'm going to check it out but my already expanding to read pile is huge, I must stay away from goodreads more as I keep finding interesting books I'd like to read lol.

  5. Have a wonderful Easter..I hope the painting goes is a project..but you will enjoy it when it is done! :)

  6. hI sam,
    My goodness, you are sooo busy. I think your bedroom will look great, you can add any colors in there you want to when its done.
    Where are you moving to if you sell your house? Someplace near there?
    Lots of good book ideas on your pile there, I'm way behind in my reading, not because I don't read but because I keep getting more books. Can't be helped, some kind of obsession.
    Still waiting for warm weather here, I want to play outside.
