I'm starting to feel CREATIVE !!

So I'm getting an itch!! What kind of itch?? Well -- I look around at my house and feel .... bored!! We haven't done anything to our house really since we've moved in and quite frankly it's boring me -- I'm getting really sick and tired of seeing WHITE on my walls. I've been getting inspired from several friends of mine, and they've been busy painting and now I would like to paint my HOUSE!! Do something to make it feel like MINE!!! So when the weather starts to warm up a little more where I can leave doors open -- I want to paint my daughters room!! I also would like to paint my sons room too!! So I'm going to look around for some bargains, on decorations to hang on the wall and really just transform the house through the spring and summer. I know it will be a lot of work, and time -- but I should really enjoy it in the end. So hopefully I can get going on this in the next month and find some cute paints and get an idea for the type of painting that I want to do. Once I do the kid's bedrooms then I want to paint the livingroom and kitchen. And then we'll work our way into the bathroom hallway and finally finish that project up that was started about 3 years ago!! I keep saying how I want to move into a nicer house, but really mine is just fine!! I think a few coats of paint to liven the place up will be the right cure for my boredom with the house -- that and like a total decluttering that needs to take place.


  1. You know what's a quick and easy way to spruce up a wall?! vinyl letters! I know a lady in UT that sells them for a reasonable price

    here's a link to some examples

    Let me know if you want the lady's email.

  2. I have been having that same itch wendy!! Did you see my blog with my two kids rooms on it that I just painted? They turned out cute and you cant believe what color does to the feeling of the house! I might paint my living room and kitchen this weekend. We will have to see! Good luck with everything!!

  3. Funny that someone's already mentioned vinyl lettering 'cuz that's what I was going to say. I got some great ones at the Quilted bear. I bought plain white wood letters at walmart then painted them blue with yellow starts and hung them in the boys room and got lettering that says "future missionary" to go underneath. The first thing we did when we got keys to our house was paint. My living room's gold and part of it and into the kitchen are a dark red. I love it. It makes such a difference to paint some walls!!! Go You!


I like feedback.... so go ahead and leave me some comment love. Thanks.
