Picture Day!

I have some pictures to share with everyone. Yay!

The first two are of the youngest child’s room freshly painted. I have to say that I was really pleased with the shade of pink.



The next two are of the oldest child’s room freshly painted. Again, I really like the purple.



Do I have a couple of girly girls or what?

The next three are of the FROG which is now officially our office. I love the blue. I was a bit afraid that it would be too dark but it gives the space a cozy feeling which I like.



The cubby space in the corner here was a bitch (sorry) to paint, heheh.


The folded up things on the floor are canvas coverings that I used to protect the carpet. Way superior to plastic imo. It covers better, it’s reusable, and it doesn’t stick to you when you’re all sweaty from painting.

Anyway, that’s that.

The next picture I took today looking out my backyard. I just wanted to show how blue the skies were today and how calm the winds are compared to what they’re going to be tomorrow. We’ve had an absolutely gorgeous week where the weather’s been concerned. It’s been a bit hot, but beautiful.


We’re ready for Hanna. She’s probably only going to be a tropical storm but better safe than sorry. We have a tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch but no evacuations so far. Our governor has also already declared a state of emergency. They’ve already canceled school for some of the neighboring counties while others are having an early dismissal. The Mister also gets to come home early tomorrow which will be nice.

I’ll update again tomorrow.


  1. That is a lovely shade of pink. Stay safe this weekend!!

  2. I love the colors! We recently moved to a new town and are renting out our house. We spent a lot of time painting and it is sad to think that someone else is enjoying it (although it is my sister and her family). Purple and pink - I have girly girls too:)

  3. GREAT paint jobs! The colors are superb, and I love the half-wall of wainscoting for the pink room. Fabulous! You live anywhere near Upstate NY? ;)

  4. You did a great job, Trisha! The rooms look lovely. I love the shade of blue you chose for the office.

    I can't believe how blue the sky (and water) are here in Hawaii. I'm so used to Southern California haze. Haha

  5. Wow! Looks great! I can't imagine having to paint & move! Yikes. Nice work though. :-)

  6. Thanks Pam! We managed to fare rather well through the storm.

    Tracee~~Thank you. Aren't girly girls fun? ;)

    Mrs. M~~Thanks a bunch. The wainscoting is wallpaper. Looks real though, huh? I really like the effect. And no. I live nowhere near upstate NY and I wouldn't want to paint anymore if I did. ;)

    LF~~Thank you so much. I left a comment on your blog, but I'm so jealous you're in Hawaii. I hope you're having a great time.

    Six~~Thanks! Painting and moving really did take it out of me. I don't recommend it, lol.

    The rooms look great! You did a fantastic job and I have to agree the colors are wonderful. Hope everything is fine after the storm.

  8. Dana~~Thanks. We made it through the storm with no scratches or scrapes. Easy peazy. I hope Ike doesn't have any affect on you guys.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
