Do you ever get ahead of yourself?

I started the week off with picking up pine cones that had dropped from the two pine trees left after the cutting down of six.  Then I got more involved with Home Talk.  First I posted my Kitchen Re-deco Pictures and got such positive responses.  After reading some posts from local people, I asked for suggestions for my yard.  I started with trying to un-pot my aloe and snake plants... what a chore!!

A suggestion was made to use areca palm as a screen along the patio... I had to make some returns so headed out.  I picked up one palm at Lowe's for $10.00.  Went to Target to pick up a blind for my bedroom.  And went to ACE Hardware for a home cleaner and got a quart of ACE flat paint in "Going My Way" a sea foam color for the living room.  I didn't realize ACE didn't have sample sizes, so that's why a quart.   It was just to try out the color on the living room side of the kitchen cabinets so that why flat paint and it was the cheapest.

So yesterday as I was having coffee, my list to-do's consisted of:
  • Replanting the aloe and snake plants;
  • Hanging the blind in my bedroom;
  • Painting a section of the cabinet so I could see it next to the yellow;
  • Wash down the exterior of the house;
  • and I wanted to unpack a box of my Grandmother's dishes...
Among the normal things to do:
  • dishes;
  • vacuum;
  • laundry;
  • straighten up and clean...
All I did was paint!  I started off just starting a section on the cabinet BUT it needed to be primed.  So after that spot dried, I primed as much as I could reach.  That dried and I painted and sat back admiring it as it dried.  One section lead to another and I finished that 'wall' by dinner time.  I love it and am so excited that I think the rest of the day will be painting.  That wall was still panelling and the wall behind the couch is panelled too.  The side walls are panelled but painted white.  I'm going to use the paint I have to paint the wall behind the couch. 

One wall done
next wall to do

So off I go to paint.... even though it is nice out and that's where I should be!  Have a great day!
