back home + this week's project

well, we are home sweet home from the big state o' texas. it was awesome. i love, love, loved austin. we played outside a lot, ate chips and salsa every meal (not an exaggeration), and did stuff like this:

(i will not get on the scale for a week after this trip. eeks)

this week, i am painting the awesome baby nursery to look like jenna lyons' baby nursery. im super-excited for how it's turning out. i actually did get the first coat of yellow on today, but i thought i'd just save that for the complete "after" pic! here is the before (she'd already had the walls painted white, and the black accent wall painted before i got there)

and here is after a WHOLE heck of a lot of measuring and penciling and taping!

  1. I can't believe you are doing stripes on the ceiling. That is going to look awesome, but I can't even imagine the work. I can't wait to see the finished product. I am hosting a party this week-My Favorite DIY. Come join if you like.
