liar, liar.

remember this post-- when i said that i didn't want to
spend any money on this rental house?
that i didn't even want to paint?
or spend a dime making this house look better?
well, i lied.
i. just. couldn't. take it anymore.

i have decided to transform a tiny
upstairs bedroom that we have been 
using as an office, into a den/hangout space.
i have just finished ripping 
the wallpaper down.
(it was a lovely mauve and light blue striped strie
with a floral border at the top. yummy, huh?)
 i've got three colors i am testing on the wall.
on the bottom:
knoxville gray hc-160
blue spruce 1637
on top:
providence blue 1636
i've already decided the one i am going with...
and i have a basic scheme for the room,
but i am still deciding on exactly how many DIMES 
i want to shell out.
blast it! everything is SO expensive...
hopefully early next week i will be able to share my 
progress with you!


  1. Can't wait to see what you're going to do with it. I know it's going to be perfect regardless of the dime amount.

  2. A few dimes is right alright. Cant wait to see what you do with it.
