Good morning everyone! I hope you are all having a fantastic Tuesday!
I know I am since it's 11:30 am and I'm saying "good morning" as if I just woke up or something...
Today I wanted to share just a little thing we/I changed in our house.
I finally got around to painting the inside of the front door!
It needed a fresh coat (or five) of paint since we bought this door after we moved in and the inside was still raw wood.
We had every intention of painting it since we got it, but it wasn't so bad until we painted the dining room and then the living room (I'll share that in a bit). The wood just started to look too pink. Eww. And that was the final push to actually get me to do it.
I started out with "California Dreaming" by Clark & Kensington (from Ace) because they had a promotion where they were giving away free quarts of paint and I made the classic mistake of just grabbing a swatch of what I thought was the perfect color without taking it home first. I guess I just figured that, since it was free, I had nothing to lose!
Sure enough after one coat, we had a neon yellow door.
This was not a good day for me, as things were not going my way and mixed with pregnancy hormones... My sweet husband went back to Ace to get the next color on the swatch called "Lotus Queen" and after about 5 coats (I lost count after 4.5) it ended up being the perfect green I was looking for all along!
I love how it looks next to the blue dining room and with the other tiny touch I added, the rug:
Just those two inexpensive additions make all the difference and totally personalize a home!
Have you added any new little things to your home lately?
Ok, I'm also participating in Ash's First & Last link-up this week where she picks a topic and we all post about our first and last experience with that topic. Last week it was your first & last concert and this week it is just a general picture edition. As per her suggestion, I decided to post the first and last picture of me pregnant!
This picture was taken on a little beach getaway Ian and I took for my birthday back in January.
Despite what you may assume, Greyer was not conceived on this romantic getaway... But we had a feeling that I might be pregnant because this was right after we decided to start "trying".
This picture was taken about three days before I took a pregnancy test and found out there was a little bun in my oven!
And of course, this is the most recent shot of me pregnant (still have 11 days to go)!
Wowzers. I really have expanded. HAHAHAHA.
And maybe just for fun I'lll post the first pic of Ian and I from that beach getaway and the last pic of the two of us (with a creepishly similar background...)
Oh, and look. My hair was already starting to frizz:
Thanks for hosting this fun link-up Ash!
