Happy Birthday to my Oldest baby :)

14 yrs old already? WHERE has the time gone!?

Happy Birthday Bub!!


Grandma called

and she wants her 1986 Country Blue laundry room back! When we moved in it had the country diamond flooring, lace curtains, and NO storage.. not sure if there were ducks... probably moved out with the owners

In true form I don't think I have any real before pics of the whole room. I cover my head in shame with the 2 I did find of the left side of the area. :-(

Don't judge me please
we found out the front loader was leaking so we threw everything to one side trying to get to the back of the machine.

the glare from the window and my lack of a real camera makes the Country Blue look not so grody
the floor was torn up by our first pup when we moved in.
I had ripped out all the plastic baseboards
hubs built the massive storage area, hung shelves, and reused kitchen cabinets for me!

so far I have :

pulled out the old sheet of flooring and added in new vinyl planks

finished painting the room

here you can see the old Country Blue with the new "10% Argos" walls

a bit better shot of the color change

what the paint looks like straight from the can
Of course I couldn't stop painting once I was going....

so right over the old Pumpkin Butter walls in what has become the catch all/dog crate room

I love this color!
We mixed it up for Oldest's room from left over Argos used in Bub's room
and 2 or 3 cans of "whatever white was left in the house including trim paint"

It changes colors based on light and accessories.
It can look --
blue gray
darker metal gray

When I go in for more paint the paint guys think I'm nuts...
"Hey lady, why are we custom matching WHITE?"

I can't wait to finish it off but I'm working on a little something else right now :)
