Ok...Can I have another drum roll........Please

Ok, I literally worked my rear off all weekend doing this...And when I say my I mean once again Christina did the whole room alone..Well hubby did help me hang the border last night..Does that really count as helping though??

Ok this before shot was taken shortly after we moved here last November..But you get the idea..The kitchen really is small..So work with me here folks


































Now here she is now..Mind you..This color green is the 3rd shade I had painted it..First was pepto pink..Then mint green pepto...But I love this one..And I also had to paint my ceramic tile on the back..The brown didn't go well with the green..And let me tell you that was a project all in itself..Took me one whole day..And it still don't look right...Anyway..This is it




















































***********************************************************

so there you have it folks...Ok now here are some random pics of my new dining room..I decorated for fall...This is the perfect room for fall...Christmas isn't gonna look so good in my new room..But hell..It fall anyway..Right??...LOL





















and the things in the center I painted..Some of my Halloween things I have done over the last few years..I know you cant see well..But hey..My camera sucks too..




















































ok there ya go...Enjoy

Cliff Morrow said...

You've got the touch C. Now about your husband helping on the border. That certainly sounds like about half of the work to me. I'm backing him up on this one.

Jamie Dawn said...

Christina, you are working yourself to a frazzle!
Good job! It's like watching a one-woman home makeover, with a little help from the hubby here and there. You should be proud.

Peanutt said...

Very nice job! Its the same at my house I work MY butt off and hubby does some random, easy task and says he helped! Ugh!

d said...

Umm, how shall I say this...while I think your rooms look really great, could you just stop now because your making me feel very, very lazy and if my husband happens to peek at my blog and follow the links he's gonna have confimation that i am one laaaazy woman! ;)

Please, for the love and peace of mind of all SAHM's....go eat some bon-bons and watch a few soaps!

(The rooms really do look great. Good job!)
