Drum Roll Please!


This is the green that I went with. Its different, but I really like it. It looks really nice with the black furniture. As I type, my husband just feel back on the bed from his shower. He had been painting since 1pm while I was at work! He picked up kids from school, plus one that called us saying she was "sick", I came home to "help" with the base boards, he had to leave to take my son to basketball practice, then came back and finished painting, I took a "break" (LOL), he told me to go rest...I took his advice...he cleaned the kids bathroom, swept the kitchen (poor hubby), took out trash, showered, a little tv,...okay he was sleep until my son just shouted DADDY!!!!!!! DADDY!!!! at 12:05am So now he is up again...Sounds crazy huh? He will be sleep in probably 15 min, wake up around 11 and check the paint and have the room ready for me by the time I get home from work. I am one lucky chick!
***PROBLEM*** I have those mirrors hanging with permanent tape and he tried to take them off and one damn near rip the wall off! The directions said to use floss, anyone have any advice for getting them down.

Looking good girl! Love the green. Yes I would use floss for that yucky tape - then use mineral spirits to remove the rest. It might be a long process though...me - I would rip it off, respackle, then repaint...but that's because I am too lazy to be a perfectionist :)

by the way...you should really snap pictures during the day with more light...so we can see the green in the daylight. I bet it will look nice!

Jen I never thought to do that..I will try tomorrow. If not Saturday because it get dark around 545-6pm. So by the time I get home from work the sun is ready for bed. I dare not let anyone else use my camera....!!!LOL..and yes my Honey is so sweet. I left him a nice note thanking him for all that he did for his wonderful woman and her dream room.
