what i've been up to..

So on Sunday, we were all sitting around the table having a nice brunch after church. My dad asked me what i was planning on doing with my day and i said i didn't know. He's the type who will come up with some horror for me to do just because i said i have no plans... so i quickly asked, "hey can i paint my room today?" completely out of the blue. We hadn't even talked about it before that moment. :D and to my surprise he replied, "yeah sure. you can paint it whatever color you like as long as you have it fully prepared before we go get the paint."

 now looking back on his reply i see that his goal was to get me to clean my room -.- i think he thought that's as far as I'd get that day, but boy was he wrong :)

yes that is a black cat lovingly decorating my white bedspread with her fur. -.-

 *please ignore the mess. i beg of thee. yeah i know it's pretty bad!*

 These are all my before pictures :)

so then i came up with a floor plan and set out on my adventure...

if you want to know how i make my floor plan planners i'll do a tutorial on it soon :)
 So i hauled all of my furniture to the middle of the room completely by myself. i cleaned my trim and removed all the nails from the walls. and i filled the holes and did lots of prep work :)

 Then i cut it all in. twice. :/  haha and yes i did paint i love you on my wall. why? to show all of you dear readers just how much i love you :p

oh yeah and i had to show you my super awesome bun haha it was quite ridiculous ;)

So i'm slowly getting everything back to normal. Starting to decorate and stuff. :D it's been fun... now i have to paint my closet and bathroom O.o

what do you think? Going from bright green to pale cream... haha

I made a floor plan just like that for my office! We had to move all my stuff from a very large room to a very teeny tiny room so I had to do a lot of finagling to figure out how to make it all fit. Those little plans are very useful (and I was glad I had to take drafting in college- made it much easier). :-)

Nice job! Can you come paint my house next? K, thanks.
