Sometimes I'm Crazy

Posted on 6:38 PM
So, Joseph and I bought a house in June. The house is only two years old so everything is new and pretty but it also only has builder khaki covering the walls.


So, we painted the bedroom, which was an easy pick. It's this great stormy gray with yellow and black accents. Totally gorgeous and comfty and a room you just want to snuggle in.

Well, for the past month or so I've been stressing over stupid paint colors. I really wish I could just paint my whole house gray, I love that color. But, I'm trying to be a bit more creative so instead I've been debating between green for the living room, entry way and dining room and (really one big area) and yellow for the kitchen.

Why can't there just be "Living Room Green" and "Kitchen Yellow"? Instead there are a dozen different shades and variations of each color and Joseph has seen me turn into a crazy lady trying to figure out what shades I actually want to use.

I finally just picked two and deferred to Joseph because he says they work. So, now we get to paint the colors all over our walls, including the part of the wall that is 2 stories high.

Pictures to come as soon as we actually paint, who knows how long that will take.


I also easily get fixated on ideas I want to complete. In fact, a person could almost call it obsessed. I have a really bad problem with patience and sometimes when I want something, I want it RIGHT NOW.

Well, my sister in law pinned some great pantry ideas on pinterest. The minute I saw them I was hooked. I had been trying to avoid pantry renovations because, well, in the grand scheme of things, it isn't that important. But, now I'm sucked in. I actually can't wait until we finish that because we are almost done as long as I can get Joseph to install my new shelves relatively quickly. (Although I am waiting on a man to do a household task, and we all know how long that can take)

Needless to say, I'm totally crazy about ridiculous and irrelevant things.
