So I enlisted the help of my mom and little sister (who just got married) to help me make cones to hold the lavender, mini pine cones and rose buds that are going to be thrown at us after our wedding. (instead of rice, bubbles, etc)
We made a little party of it at my sister’s place since my mom had not seen it yet.
As we were making our craft paper cones, I decided that some of Nancee Lee’s little apartment needed to be documented.
It’s really cute, and she has done great job in a very short time period.
You can read about my original plan and why I want to get the whole project done this week here.
I got a good start on the painting on Monday night but of course, I changed my mind six times as to my work plan and colors.
The funny thing was Joe wanted nothing to do with picking the colors.
He said, “If I don’t like them, I will just learn to live with them.”
But let me tell you how sweet he was….He went with me to get all the paint on Saturday before he left on his trip. Bought a special ladder that he didn’t think I would fall off off and an ergonomic paint brush for my small chubby hands because he said he didn’t want my hands to get tired.
After we got back from buying the paint I noticed that I had subconsciously picked the colors from one of my favorite rugs.
Funny how things work out.
Here is the first room complete (and still drying in this picture). Cut-in and rolled twice. 4 1/2 hours after work on Monday night. Done. Yay!
This guest room will loosely be based on this inspiration board I started a few months ago.
