I have a few projects in the works right now. I was finally able to get The Dude's room finished. He wasn't too happy with sayings on the wall, but I think he has accepted his fate
I found a corner computer armoire for my office. We got rid of the spare bedroom and made my own personal space. I absolutely love having my own place to do what I want and I like not having to be in the bedroom. I was way too familiar with that room.  It will be black when finished to go with the antique and wrought iron in the room.  I spray painted it and that turned out badly, so just had to put an oil based paint on it.  Rustoleum is giving my money back on the plus side.  (took 11 cans)
My next big project when the kids go to the summer program at the Lutheran school is to paint the family room.  I am looking to warm it up a little down there and with a color called camelback, I don't think I can go wrong. I helped my friend Laurie paint her living room this color and I really like it. Actually, I think I talked her into this color because I liked it so much. She did accent walls in this really cool red color. I wish I could, but it won't work with our color scheme.

Looks good! I'm very impressed with your gumption! I HATE painting. I love the saying! Is it vinyl lettering or did you stencil it?

You have mega energy! I don't mind painting, but I totally hate all of the prep. Partly because that edging tape never seems to totally work... little feathers of paint always sneak in, yet when I go to remove it, it sticks so well that the stain comes off of the trim. Way too stressful!
Lucky you to have "a room of your own"!

What is that hideous ORANGE color? Did you pick that out too?
