Boys' Bedroom Makeover: Perfectionism Kicks In

Hi all!
I hope all is well with you. :)
Today I ditched my mama work
and chose instead to finish painting.
Bright and early this morning
I finished up the khaki wall color.
While I was still feeling froggy
I decided to paint one stripe white.
The problem??
We loved it!
Yep, that meant I had seven more white stripes to paint.
So I struck a deal with Joseph,
if he'd tape off my lines then I'd paint them.
Lucky for me it he took the bait, 
and together we finished in just a couple of hours.
I have to say I'm really glad I listened to your advice,
pushed through the "I'm so over this project blah's"
and added that pop of white.
I LOVE the results!!!
Now I just need to play catch up 
on all my abandoned mama work.
Clean clothes, dishes and house OR
a fresh coat of paint for the boys' bedroom makeover?
Yep, you read my mind 
and knew exactly what I chose. ;>
Tomorrow's agenda?
Reassemble the bedroom so the boys' 
can stop sleeping on the couches. 
Not that they mind.
I'll update when there's more progress to share! :)

That does look nice. I think it's great you recruited Joseph to help tape off the lines. lol

WE are almost finished with the boys room here too. The last details always seem to take me the longest! Love the stripes!

This is great! I am tempted to do something similar in my son's room.
