Could It Be True?

I knit something!! Yay! It's nothing special. Just a small felted purse made as a sample for my Beginner's Knitting class. I'll put a picture up once it's out of the machine.

Painting has completely consumed my life. I am happy to say that all of the furniture for the bedroom is painted and once it is completely put together, I'll take some pictures of them room. Actually, I have a before picture that I can show you right now.

This is one of the pictures posted on the MLS listing. When we bought the house, it was my first priority to paint this room. It took THREE coats of primer and then two coats of paint to cover this green. Next all of my furniture had to be painted to match the bedding I bought for the room. We have saved a lot of money by painting the furniture instead of buying new stuff. I'm dying to show pictures, but I want it all be a little more put together first. I still have to work on getting pictures for the walls, knick knacks, and such. Right now I am sick and Rob is going on a trip, so there won't be much done over the next couple of days.

Now that all of the bedroom furniture is out of the living room, we can get it painted. Once it is painted we can put all the books in the bookshelf and unpack all the rest of the stuff that goes in the living room. That will take care of a mess load of boxes that are stacked all around the room. Then we still have to paint the bathroom, kitchen, the guest/craft room, the den, another dresser, a cabinet, a desk, and a book shelf. (After looking at that picture I was just reminded that we still have to paint the ceiling fan) We aren't going to bother painting the smaller bedroom because that is going to be the dogs' room. Yes that is dogs plural and not a typo. I'll tell you more about that in my next post, but for now I need to get to bed and sweat out this fever.
