Time for paint! This is where Miss Emily and I got to work together. It's been a great family project.
Wednesday, while the kids were at school I put the final coat of paint on Em's room. (The "spots" are from my dirty camera, not really on the walls).
This has been the best "cost free" project we've ever done. The Sheetrock was purchased several years ago with a gift card from Granma and Papa Doyle. The mud, tape and paint were bought with another gift card from the same great in-laws this year. The carpet was purchased last year, and I'm almost positive it was with another gift card!! We have "stuff" to decorate with that I got at Michael's with another gift card from the same giving people! Thus the virtually "cost free" project. We'll lay the carpet this week and Em is on the phone right now making plans to have friends spend the night when she comes back home next week. We're gonna have a girls night!!
Now on to inside stairs and a new, bigger room for Elijah. :) :) (I find it all very exciting, can't you tell!).
Life, my friends, is good at The White House. Thank-you for all your support and kindness. There is no storm we can't survive as long as we surround ourselves with good people.
