I'm Beat!

First of all, I wanted to thank everyone for their encouraging comments and emails yesterday.  I really appreciate that!  We are pressing on and trying to stay positive.  It's the only way to manage and stay sane! :-)

Every muscle in my entire body is aching right now because of the project I've worked on all week while Emily is away at camp.  One of her Christmas presents was the promise to paint her room.  Yes, I know it's 7 months late, but it's July so I REALLY meant it to be a Christmas in July present! ;-)

I'm not going to even edit these as I'm too tired so let me apologize now for the giant sized pictures.  She wanted polka dots and while I'm not crazy about the color combo, that is what she wanted and I think it turned out kind of cute.

For my sanity I only added dots to one wall!

She has a fake window at one end of the room that was part of the old house.  Whoever added the bathroom onto the house left the window in and you could see sheet rock behind the glass.  I tried painting it with stain glass paint but you could still see the brown wood.

So I finally just decided to paint the glass white and then add the lime green polka dots there.  I painted them on free hand so they do need to be touched up a bit.

I do want to paint her desk and dresser white and make the knobs on the drawers lime green, but it's all ready for her when she comes home from camp tomorrow.  I can't wait to see how she likes it!
