I have come to the conclusion that as stressful as home remodeling and repairs are for most people it is how I relax. If I am stressed beyond belief all I have to do it put my headphones on turn on some music and paint! It is calming and makes me feel better! So in the stress of scheduling Isaac's latest surgery ,to scope his throat and possibly remove scar tissues on his vocal chords to clear his airway some, and the chaos that is getting approval for therapy from insurance and a dr.s office that just won't do thing when they say they will (causing us to be denied). I decided to unclutter our laundry room that has been used more like a garage. I was simply going to go through and organize so my husband could put up some sturdy shelves and well a thought popped into my head! Since I have everything out and the walls are clear why not paint since the yucky primer had been up for at least 3 years waiting for just the right color to come along. I had spied a pretty shade of green when going through our paint supply collected from free uncle and friends moving, so green it would be and wow it is gorgeous Nate and I both love the color in there with the raw wood.

The bathroom is the room I hate the most. I need to find smaller mirror that I LOVE! or frame this one to make it look smaller! I also need to find metal ceiling tiles and mount the m on the wall where the towels are hanging. We found a medicine cabinet that mounts between the studs in the wall so its recessed and it will go to the left of the sink next to the light switch and the cabinet over the toilet will just go away! I will probably add a shelf and put apothecary jars on it with the Q-tips and cotton balls and some soaps and I need to get some tarnished silver things to decorate in here as well. Eventually I will find a smaller sink base that looks like furniture and will remove this yucky counter and replace the sink.
Izzy's room is pretty much complete we do need to get her new curtains and properly hang them.
We are also working on a piece of furniture that will take the place of the toy box and house all her dress up clothes and kitchen toys. This will be a huge reveal close to summertime.
Maybe she will choose to clean her room before then!
My hallway is well going to get repainted this summer!
I still love this color but not for where I am going with my house. I want calming colors throughout and I want to take down some of the pictures and simplify.
The laundry room well it is pretty much a garage it catches everything that does not have a place because we don't have a storage shed. A storage shed is much needed for all the tools and parts it would be so useful and helpful. our goal was to build one large enough that it could be used to store the motorcycle out of the weather and be a shop where we could work on small projects on a tool bench. we got concrete footers placed and a floor installed and even built walls then winter hit and we had no roof and now the plywood on the floor is ruined even though we covered and protected with paint and tarps. so now we rip it apart and start over.
So this is my very messy room
we have laundry piling up because everyone had been sick and we were playing catch up and well that is not my normal linens those got thrown up on so I pulled out my afghan my grandmother made as a wedding gift. My husbands desk is patiently waiting for an update since that is a hutch from another desk we owned once upon a time and he really needs something more sturdy. We have bought the wood but things just keep coming up and the job just hasn't been done. Oh the tool bags stacked on top of tool boxes well those are also waiting on a storage shed to be built. Don't you just LOVE my make shift closet it was an ikea garage organizer that we scored on clearance and we did need a place to hang our clothing. one day this will look more organized I have to get rid of the things I never wear because they are worn out or just too big for me now. This room is pretty much completed minus the trim that needs to be replaced on one wall and baseboards on all 4 walls. I will settle on a theme one day and it won't look so wonky in here someday!
