Weekend Recap: paint, paint and a winner!

Hello Loves,

Totally exhausted from the weekend. It was paint filled! When we moved into our house it had recently been painted. Of course I wanted all new paint colors so we re-painted, but left the trim as is. Well of course now the trim is showing it's age so I decided it would be super fun to fix it all. Ah! Along with taking my office apart and changing it into a guest room instead since my office is moving to the florida room.

Let's just say my whole body aches, I have paint everywhere and my living room is waiting for me to just get out of bed and start painting the trim. Luckily I cleaned everything and taped all the tirm last night. Plus my Mom( who is a teacher)just finished her school year last week so guess what she get's to do today....that's right..come over and help me!

Of course I also had to go into Queens yesterday and help my SIL paint so it really has been a paint filled weekend.

So even though my hair even hurts this morning I was super excited to wake up this morning and pick a winner for the amazing storage bench give away

A huge thank you to everyone that commented. I truly wish I had enough benches to give one to everyone! Hopefully I'll be getting more give-away for you in the near future.

Without further ado! picked number 112!

Congrats Christina from Down and Out Chic (One of my favorite daily reads!)

Can't wait to see pictures of it in your home!

Ok off to paint I go and I'll be back later with a new purchase for my office!

Yay I was so happy that Christina won as well. I can't wait to see it in her home!

Ms. Madras,

I tried to help my SIL, but let's just say we have different styles. She ended up with gold/yellow in the living room, blue in her bedroom, pink in the bathroom, gray in the hallway and beige in the kitchen. Ah different strokes for different folks.
