Frustration Station

I just hate it when things don't go my way, lol.  So the other day I painted my chairs.  I wan't entirely sure about the color but hoped it would work.  Unfortunately, it just didn't work, so I painted them a different color.  UGH!  Even worse the second time!  So I painted one back to the original color, giving it another chance, and left if for a few days hoping it would grow on me. Well, it's been a few days now and I still don't like it.  It just does not work in the room.  I love the color but not in this specific application.

Ready, Set, Paint!

We made headway on the chairs today...woohoo! The chairs were dismantled and got a pretty new coat of paint. Here is what they looked like just before their new digs.

Bad Days and Good

Today was a mingled mess.  It started out as not a good day.  Zero point zero motivation and two whinny kids.  I got the dishes done, so that was a plus, but I wasn't able to get to the grocery shopping! Then it turned a little better. I don't know how I pulled it off but I got a good start on my curtains.  I had one nap time where both kids were sleeping (which never happens so I took full advantage).  Then I discovered that I didn't have enough fabric.  Almost three yards too short. the heck did that happen? From there it got a little worse.

Here are some of my inspiration photos that led to my overall design for my family room. A few posts ago I talked about the curtains that I am totally in love with, so here is a picture of them.  These curtain are on my Pinterest and are originally from the Besserina blog.  They are Anthro inspired and as soon as I saw them I knew they would be part of my room.
