Still going . . .

 So here is the new wall in the living room and the new kitchen opening after it's been mud and taped ($250 is what we paid to hire it out-so worth it!!)
 I saw this color on pintrest and loved it! It's called "Stone" and has a bit of a plum undertone that I love.
 After we painted, my daughter and I decided to stencil the painted walls. We bought a metallic glaze in pewter.
 The stencil is a Moroccan design. I borrowed it from my sister. It was super easy to use and very forgiving since the paint is metallic and light. I made a billion mistakes that don't show unless you're really looking. It was pretty quick and pretty easy. You just roll the paint over the stencil, match it up to the next part and do it again.
 I even let my daughter do it and she loved it.
 And now for the finished product. Love love love this!! All in all it cost about 40 bucks with paint and the pewter glaze and was a day project. Not to bad. I did three of the fours walls. The last wall will remain white with wood wainscoting on the walls. I can't wait for that project. We will also add baseboards and wood around the kitchen opening. And as you can see, I did this project without being fully moved it. It's still somewhat of a mess, but so am I. I don't do things in order. :)

Just spent three hours with the amazing group that will be reading for the Listen to your Mother show. If you haven't done so, please buy a ticket. It will be so amazing!! Tears streamed down my face both from laughing and crying.

In other news. The neighbor girl and my daughter (both 5) decided to poop in my backyard for fun. The best part was my 7-year-old sons comment.

"Mom, mom it's over here. Come quick and look at the poo!!!"

Pointing at the poo: "The bigger ones are Chloe's and the smaller ones are Meg's."

Thanks Cam. So glad you pointed that out.
