So, I had a good idea.
The idea was to repaint the family room and kitchen walls.
But if I painted the kitchen walls, I would want to paint the cabinets white. But if I painted the cabinets white, I would need new kitchen chairs and barstools to match. If I got new kitchen chairs, I would need a new hutch. But now the new colors wouldn’t work with the sofa. And of course, the rug would feel out of place and would need to be replaced.
So, I did what any normal human being would do.
I sold it.
I sold it ALL.
I literally mean all of it.
Sofa, rug, coffee table, artwork, kitchen chairs, barstools, hutch.
Gone in less than a week.
Not my brightest moment
because we now have nowhere to sit
Looking good, huh???
We went to buy a couch and picked out a fabric
and that is when we found out it will take 8 weeks
to arrive. Yep, you read that right… 8 weeks.
So, the next 8 weeks will be spent on beanbag chairs and Pottery Barn Anywhere chairs. Thank goodness for those
I am very lucky to have an understanding husband. He is just shaking his head about this entire situation.
Everywhere you go, there are paint samples on the walls.
Best part? I didn’t label them, so I forget which ones are which.
Smart, Hayley, really really smart.
Have you ever read the kids’s book
“If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”?
Yep, it kind of feels like that around here…
And it all started with some paint
Okay, lots and lots of paint.
And no, I still haven’t decided on a paint color….
