  1. You sound like you are surviving and you KNOW it will all be worth it. As I was looking at your "dumping grounds", I just thought to myself, "Man -- I LOVE those rooms!" You have such a talent, Kim. I was impressed again with the green background of the hutch. My goodness -- I really need to get decorating!

  6. So much hard work, but oh how gorgeous it will be. You have such a beautiful home and such beautiful furniture. This is when I love to switch things up and put some things in different rooms and try a whole new look. I can't wait to see it all done. You really deserve a very long rest. Hugs, Marty

  11. Hee hee .. I'm sorry Kim! Glad you had a snicker. You have a very good man, indeed. Just make sure if he works in anyone else's house to wear a shirt ; ) LOL!

    Everything really does look wonderful! I like your color choices too.

  14. I know this is driving you crazy because you are like me a neat knick. But unlike me you are very ambitious and a go getter to get this done in a weekend, I am totally impressed. Are you loving the color as much as you thought you would. Sometimes what seems to be a subtle change makes a huge change. I jope you can take a few days to rest next week. Good luck my friend, Kathysue

  15. I have two walls I have been putting off painting for six months! It is by far my least favorite thing to do. Your home is still beautiful even with this project going on.

  20. Kim, Oh, how I've had very similar dumping grounds! Why is it that there is so much chaos and disorder? It takes as much time to clean up as it does to do the actual job! LOL
    I'm sure it will all look just like you want it, once you're done.
    hugs, Sue

  21. Boy you guys work fast and efficient Kim...I love the color so far what I can see.

  22. LOL...cute! I love the color, my daughter just built a home and this is the color she chose too. I just hate it when my house is all moved around like that but it has to be once in a while to be even better. Can't wait to see yours all put back together! Come say hi :D

  23. Don't you just hate the upset and mess?....although my place always looks a LOT worse than that when I'm painting!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It all looks fantastic already!!! And can't wait to see your light redo! :)

  25. I bet the mess is driving you nuts, but it's going to be bright and shiny new when you finish painting and put everything back!

  28. It is going to be beautiful, Kim!

    Love the color.

  29. It is looking great! Don't you find it so hard to constantly work around all the stuff??? I wish we could be like the HGTV and have people move all the stuff out to work in an empty room!!!

    Hang in there...the end is near!

  30. Kim....it is looking great. Painting is so much work, but when you're done, it's all worth it. Can't wait to see the completed photos.

  31. Are you kidding???? You're having a fantastic weekend!!! To know that you're getting something done that you've been wanting done for a long time AND you're husband is helping you? That sounds like a perfect weekend to me! Everything is looking good. Now can you just loan me your husband to come over and paint my boys bedrooms? We wouldn't want him to get out of practice or anything.

  33. Kim,
    Hang in there, it will all be done at some time or another. I know it is hard to live when everything is out of order, at least for me.
    Your comment about your hubby is cracking me up :)

  34. Kim,
    If it helps we look the same over here! It was so much fun emptying the rooms for the projects, but now I am exhausted and trying to put it all back! Can't wait to see your finished pictures! I know they will be awesome :)

  35. Hi Kim,
    Weren't you suppose to be resting girl???
    Doesn't it just thrill your heart when your hubby has a paint roller (or in my case a paint brush cause I do the rolling)in his hand. No thrill like it!! lol
    Well, I am glad you showed us the turmoil, cause seeing it all put back together just makes it all the more fun!!
    Looks like it is coming out very nicely. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Blessings, Nellie

  37. Looks terrific Kim :) Your husband will be so much easier to clean this way, and no stained shirts!! I love the color, it looks warmer, which fits your personality better. Thank you for being a real person for 2 reasons. 1)pic of hubby shirtless 2)showing that you have to have clutter to make things prettier! You are great!

  38. Your color is looking nice. Don't you hate doing a project and the mess that it creates in the house? That is the worst part.

    You are almost finished and it looks great.

  39. Looking good! I love your chandelier..
    And your man is saving you lots of money! I just paid 450 to have my dining room painted!

  40. Best looking "dumping grounds" I have ever seen! Your home is so gorgeous, can't wait to see it all back together!!! When we painted we had 5 different ladders in our living room(cathedral ceilings)....what a mess!!!! But the end result is SO worth it! XO, Pinky

  41. I don't have a blog, but ran across yours while looking at something else. I plus my sister and now all her friends are hooked. Love your style and look forward to your projects. We have a little junkin booth @ an antique store and we are always looking for new ideas to make over our finds at thrift stores and flea markets. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.
