Nothing like a fresh coat of paint...

Repainting my master bedroom has been on my "to do" list for awhile now. I was having difficulty deciding on a color that would work with the existing neutral walls, flooring and carpet, but finally decided on Sherwin Williams Copen Blue. Like many newer homes, the house has bullnosed (rounded) corners and the rooms flow into one another with the exception of the bedrooms, baths and laundry room. My home is rather dark due in part to outdoor solar window screens, so dark colors are off the table. Most of my home is painted in Sherwin Williams Macadamia...not a bad color, but I'm ready for a change. I knocked out the painting yesterday...a full day of work between prepping, moving furniture, painting, cleaning and putting the room back together. I can hardly move today, but it's DONE!!!!  ;)

If you have a favorite neutral interior paint color, please let me know...I'm weighing my options for the remainder of the house. Hmmmmm, if I wait until summer break, maybe I can recruit my hubby to help for the next round of painting! Here's a "before" and "after" of the bed area...

Have a great weekend everyone!

She's here!!!!!!

Life has been a bit crazy as of late in my neck of the woods. Most notably, my daughter gave birth to her second child on April 5th.

Let me introduce you to our little Regan...

This Nana and Papa are totally smitten! 
What a blessed work of God.
