A lot can happen in a year

Can you believe that a year ago this week we moved into our home?  After all the tears, and all the money, and all the afternoons walking through strange houses, we finally found one to call our own and have lived here a year. 

Over the past 365 days we have made small purchases here and there to make this home our own.  And today the painter will be here to repaint the stairwell, guest bathroom, our bathroom and the red wall in our master bedroom.  While red may be one of my favorite colors, it is also one of the least neutral colors on the color wheel.  We have opted to keep the wall the dramatic focal point of the room, but in a greenish brown tone that will go with virtually every color.  Except for the Barny purple in the guest bath, and that just needs to go away.  

I'll take some pictures when he's finished.  If it looks as fantastic as I am expecting it will, I am going to be over the moon excited.  And probably planning the next painting project for him.  He's fairly cheap and I absolutely HATE painting a textured wall.  And I've tried.  Twice. 


  1. Can't wait to see the finished product. Bye Barny purple! I'll bet Abby is shaking in her boots.

  2. You are a very smart women. You know your strengths, and if painting ain't one of them, so be it! The new color sounds great.

    Can't wait to see the results.
