So, we've been painting at our house. Here are some things I've learned about painting:
*I do not like painting
*The color on the paint chip never looks like you think it will
*Steve does not like painting
*You will not like color you chose
*Never paint your walls with flat paint--It is impossible to clean. Our whole house was painted in flat paint when we moved in. It also kind of gives you the willies when you touch it or rub it.

Here's proof that we did the work ourselves, if you can't already tell by looking at the paint job:)

Now that Mitchell is 5 months old, his room is finally done! Even though it didn't turn out quite like I imagined, it is now no longer flat and its actually kind of cute, if I do say so myself.

Here's the best part of the room...adorable sleeping baby!
We are still working on Miranda's room. We have part of it pink, but she now says she wants it seafoam green--I don't think so!


  1. It's very cute! I am contemplating painting. It really is a big huge pain, but in the long run it usually looks great. Mitchell is so adorable.

  2. I totally agree about your painting comments. I do not like to paint either, etc. So where did Miranda learn about sea-foam green?

  3. Very cute room, and yes, Mitchell is the best part of the room. Cute room for a cute boy!

    PS I think Mitchell's room is bigger than mine and Aaron's! HAHA!

  4. hey karen... it's fun to see your cute kids. i really need to do some painting. our kitchen area is half done. it's quite the job to get it done. Mitchell's room is cute. I love how tidy everything is. I got a card from Megan, a baby announcement. She has 3 little boys. Cute Meg. I still remember when she said, "Heather! Will you commit to going to Hawaii with us in a year!" I so couldn't commit... but wouldn't that have been fun. I can't remember if I sent you the email about us having Eliza. You can see pictures at

    sounds like a munchkin is out of bed. take care! have a great week

  5. You don't like the color? I think it looks super!

  6. LOVE IT/him! the room and cute mitchell!
