That's how I spent most of the day.

I took the day off today since the kids had off due to a teacher in-service day. Woke up to a dreary morning and I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the projects I've got on my to do list that just haven't gotten done lately.

I finally decided to bite the bullet and tackle the biggest project on the list. You see a few months ago we all decided that the playroom really wasn't getting used that much as is. So we are doing a little shuffling and redecorating. Fritz will be moving into the old playroom and Becca will be getting Fritz's old room. This is good because her room is on the small side and the girl has collected some stuff! Even though we are planning a major "tossing" when we move her room I'm sure she'll only collect more "stuff" in the future.

Now last spring I redid Fritz's I'm just recreating the look in his "new" room and he is okay with that. Today I put one coat on all the walls. Hopefully I can have this room done by the end of the weekend. Then I can move on to doing a new room for Becca...we already have the sheet set. Just have to get new carpeting and pick a paint color.

After everyone is settled into their new rooms I will have an empty know where this is heading don't you???

Yes finally it will be mine! This valance will be my color inspiration...

I plan on painting the walls the same shade of green as in the valance. Then I will be pulling the other colors as accents. We will be putting one of those "sleeper" chairs in the room. It's like a chair and a half that has a twin bed that pulls out...that way it can double as a guest room when needed.

I figure I will be working on this project most of the summer. Stay tuned for up dates.

Ooh, I LOVE moving rooms and re-decorating, how fun! And even better you are getting a room Jen. Really like these colours too. I plan on painting my scrappy room in the summer too, but I can't decide on the colour! Sue

Theres nothing like your own scrap room!!! We are at the very beginning stages of looking at new houses and MY room is the criteria for whether the house gets a second look!! Have fun and hope you get it done fast!!
