Low-key weekend?

Ah does everyone remember that I mentioned on Friday’s post that I didn’t really have anything going on this weekend?

Well due to that this nutty lady woke up Sunday morning and decided that she was tired of seeing the Florida room the same exact way for a year and half.


You see we always wanted to turn the room into an all season room and make this my office. We would get rid of those windows and switch them for new French doors onto a new deck that we wanted to built as well, put in bamboo floors, mount flat screen tv to the wall, etc.

Well due to the economy we are trying to tighten our belts so we decided to wait on this project for the time being. We were just going to leave it as is until then, but I came up with a plan and after a $90 trip to Lowes we started working on the new in between look for the Florida room.

Here it is in it’s current state:

florida room 001

florida room 002

Ok so it still doesn’t look so great, but I swear I have an amazing idea for it. I just need a bit more time. I was painting last night till 10:30pm. I pretty much painted myself from head to toe, because I’m such a messy painter and did I mention I was a bit clumsy? Towards the end of the night I tipped over a gallon of white primer and it went everywhere!

Ah today’s another day and up early and ready to continue my painting.

I hope your day is filled with BBQs, sunshine and fun, because mine will be filled with paint fumes, painters tape and rollers.

Happy Memorial Day!

The mishap with the paint... I've done that very thing-messy job!
I think your perk-up looks great. Just in time for a summer lift.

Wow! White paint does wonders for a smaller room. It looks so bright-and it's going to look so great when you're finished.

Can't wait to see the finished product! Good luck and thanks for sharing.

You're not alone. I have spilled paint, only it was in my friends' house and went beyond the dropcloth, onto her peach color carpet. Luckily, it all came up.

Nothing like a can of paint and a little nutty lady syndrome to take effect -- I love that about you,
and me. I know it will be great!
