So, Mom and I got all adventurous today and decided to paint the guest bedroom (aka Wade's old bedroom) and the upstairs bathroom. It took a little bit of trial and error to get a color we liked, but we finally found ones we LOVE.

"Zen Garden" by Valspar

Second color from the left...the one on both ends is too minty
and the second from the right is too dark...third time's the charm!!!

The last white spot!

Mom is the Edging Queen!

The bathroom goes "Lament Blue"...wait until you see the finished product. The towels are gorgeous. And, we're going to go with a bit of a coastal theme with some shells and photos of the beach.

I did help, but being the photographer doesn't get you in the picture very often. Mom did catch me painting in the bedroom but since it's my blog, I get to deny any unflattering pictures access to this page. :)

I will try and post some pictures of the finished rooms, once we get them decorated. We have some framed photos, cute shelves and a great mirror to hang in the guest room. Then once we go to the beach next week, we will see what we get to hang in the bathroom.

Well, you look so productive--can't wait to see the finished products!  The blue looks kinda like the robin's egg blue I used in our back guest bedroom.  I just love that color.Is Lori back to work, or was this project done over the weekend?Love, Allegraps--Brooke, I enjoy your blog.  Keep writing!
