Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
Brushing up on my tackling stills :)

I tackled some other painting and decorating plans a month ago, but before that I hadn't tackled in a YEAR!

I think I will keep a running To-Do list here (at the bottom) like I do for Sunday Scrappin' to keep myself accountable.

For last week I finally got my bedroom wall painted after having the paint sit around for a month and a half!
Here's my wall all clean and ready...

Whole first coat done - it looked really bad!...

And I looked pretty messed up myself...

But the kids were still having a good time, because I wasn't paying as much attention to their "quite time" :)...

It all looked MUCH better once the second coat was completed!!!...

This is the only picture I could find of what the room looked like before I took everything off the walls and moved the furniture away...

I totally love it. Now I can't wait to get my 2 year old a "big girl bed" so I can take her crib and move it into my room for the new baby... it will go to the far right in this picture :)


Now onto my running TO-DO list...
  1. Organize and pare down hand-me-down clothes in bins.
  2. Hang acoustic guitar on wall in front room.
  3. Pack hospital bag.
  4. Make labor index cards to help hubby coach.
  5. Get kids to doctors appointments and sign-up for WIC.
  6. Back up hard-drive.
  7. Get old scrapbook packages ready and go to post office.
  8. Get a "big girl bed" for Mini and move her crib to master bedroom.
  9. Get a work-space built for homeschooling in the Fall.
  10. Find online courses and sign-up to do my own general ed.

It looks so nice! The first coat always looks terrible; it's so much work to paint! But the results are worth it!
