Projects, Oh my!

 The summer is coming to a end......AHHHHHHH!!!! It has gone soo fast! I just can't believe that in a little over a week I will be back in the classroom. Kinda makes me sickly (this was my first hint that I need a career change....farming anyone?!?).

As the countdown begins, there are several things on my summer to do list that were/are stressing me out, as they weren't finished and its almost over. So, this past week I have gotten on my big girl pants and got some stuff done.

I decided to paint my bedroom because I have hated the color since we moved in. Here are the before pictures!
Very dark hunter green color. Now, I'm a green girl, but this color was terrible.
You can't really grasp in this picture how dark this room was.

And here are the after!

I am pretty pleased with the results! The color was called wood smoke. Depending on the light, it looks green, brown, or grey. All pretty neutral but I like it! And the trim was painted swan white which really pops and looks more modern. The ceiling is a tint lighter than the walls to add height and give the illusion of more space.

In addition to the paint, I decided to cover the light outlet and the lamp shade in the bedroom with some leftover fabric (that I love!) from the curtains I made a while back.
Here are those pics.
Next on the list is to paint that awful dated furniture. I think I may paint it the swan white color, but I am still deciding. Input anyone?

Kole had his first sleepover with his BFF! It was fun and a little stressful. They didn't (wouldn't) go to sleep until 1am ( I had to get stern). This is the morning, and as you can see, we are having funnel cakes!! Koles friend wasn't so sure about them at first, but after one bite he was hooked. His mom said that he has been asking for them at home now!! Glad I can be an advocate of healthy

Lastly, Nana took kole school shopping and here are a few pictures of the loot.

All this school stuff is a little depressing.....=(
I'm not ready to go back. It has been an awesome summer. These last few days I have left are being packed with activities, appointments, visits, and projects that I haven't accomplished yet.
Hopefully, one of these will be to paint the exterior of the house!!! Ill have some before and after photos when that happens.

Until then, I'm off to enjoy my last few days of freedom!!!!!!
