Progress of sorts.

It has been a long time since I started this blog. The original goal of it was to make me more accountable and to motivate me to finish projects around the house. Things didn't quite turn out that way, but we've recently made more progress than in the last year all together. My last post about the bedroom was way back here: The dresser, girls' room, and stuff.

We have now mostly finished painting the room! All of the new trim is up and installed! Putting the trim up in this room was a nightmare because the 2 walls near the door are curved. We just have to do one more coat of the white trim paint, and then go back and touch up the purple in a ew more spots. And cover up some of the purple paint that got on the ceiling.

The dresser has been sanded and primered. And sanded again. I need to do another coat of primer and some caulking, and then it will be ready to be painted.

Congrats on all the hard work! And I know what you mean about not being as faithful to the blog writing....life just seems to get in the way sometimes, doesn't it? Just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten your gift though! I've made a couple of things but still haven't settled on what to send but will hopefully be getting around to it soon. Have a great day!

Sadie the room is looking fantastic. Can't wait to see it finished.

That looks great! The color is similar to my girl's room. You'll have to change the name of the blog--your home is looking lovely!
