Project Weekend

The girls have been wanting to change the color scheme of their rooms. I think that they started working on Holly and I about making the change around mid-summer. Holly finally caved into their demands in September and purchased new comforter covers for them. Those were then used to pick the new colors. We had one stipulation....the color near the ceiling and near the baseboard trim had to stay. This would make it much easier for us to paint.

Below are the results. If you explained the colors individually, it would sound very bad, but I think the results are great. Most importantly the girls really like their new rooms.

Maddie's room was "go-go green" and pink before the weekend. We called it the watermelon room because it looked like the inside of a watermelon.Hannah's room was pink and blue. With the vast amount of pink in the room, we dubbed hers the "pepto bismal room".
Hannah contributing to the workload.
Madison doing her part.
The final product. Note the artwork on the wall that she did. Holly bought both of the girls real canvases at the craft shop. They enjoyed creating these last weekend.
Hannah's final product. That is her canvas on the left. They both have one more to complete for the other side of the room.
On a bike note - I planned on riding a dirty hundy this Sunday. Set the alarm for 5:30am, woke, made breakfast, dressed, got the bike ready and left at 6:45. Rode .6 miles down the road and turned around. Came home, took off the riding gear and sat in front of a heater and ESPN for the rest of the day. Sometimes, your mind just isn't into it....

The rooms look great. I know what you mean about not being into it. I made it out on Saturday to the cross practice, but Sunday I got up to the alarm and shut it off and went back to bed!

Nice job on the painting. You were smart to have them keep the colors by the ceiling and the floor the same. Smart move also on going home. Sometimes the body needs a break, and there's no sense in not having fun while you're out riding.

The worst part of painting is taping the trim and cutting in at the ceiling. It was Holly's call on the paint scheme and I readily agreed.
