For the love

I am going crazy with everything that I am doing. I am trying to paint, trying to survive in life, trying to help my kids survive. Homework, Laundry, Dishes, mopping, cleaning up after the little one drawing on everything (theres another paint project right there) carpool, sports, ok I could go on and on, but I won't. I just find how do I fit everything in. So I know that it takes me quite a bit of time to put new things I've done on here, but it will happen.....I PROMISE. Don't give up on me yet. mwah!

Loving Pinterest

My sister introduced me to Pinterest. I like having my inspirational pictures all in one spot. Here are just a few.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011


I'm a huge fan of Vintage rooms, but the way that my children are I don't think I could pull it off in a childs room. They would destroy it. Maybe a guest bedroom, or my bedroom. But on my bedroom my hubby said that he would rather have a room a little more masculine than girly. I agree. He doesn't want to sleep in a room with pink colors and lace and flowers. I get it, I get it.

But I still can't get over these rooms.

On a side note. The painting is coming along nicely. Hopefully soon I will have some finished projects as well as the whole room. Mwah!

Ok Today is the day

The hubs doesn't know that today is the day that I will be picking out paint. HEE HEE. It seriously drives him insane that I like to paint and change colors. I promised him when we lived at our other home and were moving into our new home that I wouldn't paint for 5 years. Well that time is up baby.

Here is my dilemma. I have couches in my front room. Not my first choice of color, but they were cheap. :) They are a hint of orange leather. Ok who am I kidding they are orange. Not a bright orange, just an orange. So I have two walls that I want to put the stencil on in this room. One before you walk into the room and one on a wall when you come in. I am trying to decide the color that I would like to put on these walls.

These aren't my couches, but I am lazy and don't want to go take a picture. But this is pretty darn close to the color of the couches.

Now I was thinking maybe a brown.

I looked on the color wheel. I

know so nerdy, but it's quite helpful. And in all reality these oranges and browns are very warm colors. I love me some warm colors. To accentuate these colors though you go across the color wheel to the Blues. It makes both colors stand out a little bit more. So now I am even more confused. I don't want my house to look like you are going into Cafe Rio for a salad, but I would like it to look like "wow that is so freakin cute" You get me dog.

I am going to choose today and get some crap done. It's coming almost winter and I have to park in my garage. You say what does parking in your garage and painting inside have to do with each other. Well I have so many projects in the garage. I need to get them done and out. Plus I need to be a little more organized. HEY A GIRL CAN DREAM RIGHT? MWAH!!!!

NO Mulah!!

It is really hard to decorate even if you are decorating cheap when you have no mulah. It is rather frustrating, because I have a million ideas, but no money to pull them off. Well I want to do a stencil right when you walk in my house and then one in the living room. Here are some of my favs. Which ones do you like. Go check out Tons of stencils. Love them. It would be awesome if someone wanted to go in with you on them. Let's be aren't doing the same stencil all over your house. So share them or you can always make your own. Click right here and you can see how she made her own. Well worth the time. Mwah!

I hate it when I have a million options. Two I could choose from, but a million it makes it a little harder. Here is what I am having dilemmas with. My 11 year old's room I have painted her desk, dresser, side table gray. Then she has accent piece of turquoise. So freakin cute. Here is my dilemma. Do I paint the walls gray, gray striped, gray diamonds, or a totally different color. Blahhhhh Then I have to choose a yellow for my little ones room. I like yellow with orange, but there are sooooo many that I am getting bugged by all the colors. For the love just buy the paint and get it done. ALRIGHTY, ALRIGHTY!! sHEESH.

If you are looking for colors and looking to see what it would look like on your walls go here. They have a cool application to upload a photo of yours and then paint it. Mwah!!!

DI finds

You know how I love DI (deseret industries) These are a couple of things that I found. So excited. OH THE POSSIBILITIES.

This I want to cut off the bottom part, paint it white and put it on the wall as a book case.
In the process.

I love this. I have no clue where I will put it or what color, but I love it.

Now this is an Armoire. It has a matching dresser and two end tables. I wanted to put it in the little girls room, but A dresser and an armoire might be a little too much for their room. I don't know yet, but isn't it adorable. The girls room, coming along. Slowly, but surely. :)

Inside of it. Until next time. Mwah!

Monday, August 8, 2011


Ok I have a couple of birthdays to celebrate today. My daughter, one of my dear friends, my brother in law, and then a cute little baby girl that came into the world on Saturday. I promise I will post a bunch of DI finds tomorrow. :)

Alrighty I am so back in the swing of things. As of right now I am in the process of getting all of the kids rooms, perfect. Yes I know that things will never be perfect for a family of 5 children, but a girl can hope right?

As of right now this is the planner baby. Yellow, White and Black and White for the little girls room.
Gray and Turquoise for my 11 year old girl's room (that accent color of turquoise may change I don't know yet)
Boys room is black and Red
Then so far I want to do a black and white and pink (black and white polka dots) for the girls bathroom. We will see how all of this goes.

Here are a couple of pictures of inspiration for some rooms. I will definitely post when I am done.

I know this room has colors that are labeled as drab, but I love it. It seems so mysterious. I want to have a room like this. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
So girly.
I love the paris part.
Very sophisticated
I don't know if this one is too busy for me or not, but still love the colors. I mean I am using those colors for my girls. HELLO

Alrighty so get freakin inspired people. I've got a project coming that I hope works out because it will be AMAZING. Mwah!!!

So sorry

Ok The summer has been crazy. From Family Reunions, to Birthdays, to Scout Camps. UGH but ohhhhh so fun. So I will be back in action at the end of July. I just don't want to miss all the fun with the kids. See ya later, but I promise I will be back.

First....something is wrong with my camera. What the. Oh I hate this. I hate it because when it rains it freakin pours. boooooooo Second. This is another thing I have realized a ton. I love doing all these little projects and sharing them, but sometimes I feel a little overwhelmed. Why? Well let me just tell you that I always want to get stuff done so that I can share it, but then at the same time....well for example this week. This week my Daughter is preparing to be in a pageant. Yes I said pageant. I am soooo not a pageant mom. But I felt like I should be supportive of something that she wanted to do. It's kind of taking all my time so all of my extra stuff is shoved to the side. Then I feel like well I haven't showed any projects yet. So I did some projects, but now the camera doesn't work so how in the heck am I suppose to post. I am getting uber frustrated at this moment. booooooo, but mwah none the less.

Ok I promise pictures to come

I swear the summer is going to be hard to get everything done. Why? Because I have 5 cutie patooties that I would rather spend time with. We have been partying like it's no other. I also thought it was a good idea to save some money on my Kilz and bought a big gallon of it. Well then I realized that My compressor wasn't working. So the spray on isn't working yet. I have to borrow a compressor. So I have to prime 5 projects then I have to paint each different colors. Love it, but hate it too because of all the clean up. That is why I love the spray paint out of a it out...yep then toss it. Boo on clean up. Be patient the items are coming. I will post pictures tomorrow of all the items I have and what I want to do.

Ok I am sooo far behind. I know I know. It just seems like when it comes to the end of the school year, the little thing called "My time" gets thrown out the window. Booooo on that crap.
Back to the fun stuff. I went on a little vacay for Memorial day and we did go to some garage sales. Can I just say....That is so much fun with my sisters and mom. We do some drive by shopping. You know what that is. Driving by and seeing if there is anything you can see you want and if not, outta there. Well there were some great finds. I will be redoing some furniture as well as some small decor. Stay tuned.

Apartment fabulous

More stuff from the apartment. Ok This stuff is so cute. It just shows you that you can take something so basic and make it just what you want. Ok check out this cute desk. Now I don't have a before of this desk, but it was just this horrible green color with silver knobs.

Just painted it with the Bahamaus Gold from Krylon and then the chair just black from Krylon. So cute. Ok then I love the new craze of the empty frames. Look how cute this turned out.

Then she bought this basket at DI. Well she need some color. So we painted it. All I am saying is that you can turn anything into some pop of color in your house.

Also this was a blackish color. We bought it at DI. My sister decided that she would paint it orange and look how cute it is. She glazed it as well. Turned out good. Make your home what you want. Now there is a whole lot of color in her apartment. But I do love it. Mwah

I know this is a newer blog, but I need to get the word out. This beautiful human being is my sister in law. I love her oodles. She is battling MS. For the past 10 years she has been completely dependent on others. I remember she had gotten to a point that she needed help right after she had got married. All the sister in laws took turns going in and helping her. Helping her to get into her wheelchair, help her eat. Help her grab things. This was at the beginning stages of it. All the little things that we take for granted. It seriously broke my heart. She continued to get worse and worse. She has her mother caring for her every day. If someone doesn't help her eat, then she doesn't get to eat. If someone doesn't help her bathe, then she doesn't get clean. Her mother is the researcher of all researchers. Her mother heard a certain diet could help so she put celeste on it. (mind you I would try and sneak stuff for celeste when her mom wasn't looking) Her mother has researched this and found this new treatment. They need help because it is so expensive. Donate. Donate anything you can. Celeste and Matt deserve to have this moment. A moment where she can walk, a moment where she can do things on her own, a moment to be a mother. Be a part of this. Help her get there. DONATE!!! MWAH!!

Go to here to read about her and see the video (so inspiring) or here to donate.

This is what I feel like today.

I have way way way too much going on. This is what happens at the end of the school year. YOWZA!
Ok back to furniture redos. So this is one of the latest and greatest projects. Now my sister get these colors. Some of them I am like OH yes!!! Then others I'm like Oh NO!!! She chose a lime green. When she was done with it, it was like neon green. We had to go back and get another color and this is what is came out to look like. I actually uber love it. Thats the great thing about paint, you can re-do. :) mwah!!!

Serious need of Window Treatments

I am in some serious need of window treatments. In every room. Now I have the shutters which I love. But I think to dress it up a bit more Curtains would be lovely. Here are some ideas that I love love (but could I really pull this off)

This last one is over at All things thrifty. I am being super lazy at this moment and not giving you a link to just click on. Just type in Window Valance on her site (where you search) . The first one will show you how she did it. It is rather inspiring. Mwah!!

Apartment AMAZING!!!

I promised to show you some of the projects that my sis and I did in the apartment. I love how it all worked out.
Check out this cute cute table. We finished all the chairs. I love everything about it.
I was a little worried of how it would all look with the Red wall, but I just think it looks absolutely adorable.
This Turquoise scared me a little. I just thought with the red wall that it would look like a del taco commercial. NOPE. Once she had put the decorations up and let me just say that this picture does not give it justice. It is freakishly adorable. I love it.
To my sister...You seriously inspire me and secretly make me want to have a little apartment to decorate. :) Mwah!!!
