I'm typing this at 1am... Drew just started making noise and I was too excited to sleep, I'll explain why tomorrow.
AJ and I have decided that our main priority is getting this master bedroom done. We are full force into it and have the majority of paint on the walls (Benjamin Moore's Moonshine), I'll show it to you on Thursday or Friday.
AJ has given me Thursday as a day to do whatever I want (he has school vacation this week). I love those three words and how selfish it feels (did I just say that?). So I'm working on a couple of projects for the master... namely, the headboard (the secret project I mentioned yesterday) and painting a mirror for over our fireplace. What is it about not having to watch your one-year old that makes you work at the speed of light (I suppose it's all comparative)? And you know what else I plan to do? Get a mani or a pedi.... it makes me relaxed just thinking about it.
I've been going crazy brainstorming just the right nightstand for the light gray walls, the dark gray I envision for the bed and the light pink accents. I found some divine ones at Marshalls the other day but they were a dark wood, and for the price, I couldn't rationalize painting them. Here are two of the budget friendly options (around $100) I'm thinking of. I'm linking to the site that each one is listed on:
I love the substantial look to each of them, they don't look flimsy like some of the others I'd seen while looking on Google shopping (best way to find deals ever).
Okay, onto the report on the Move It Challenge:
