StRiPeS





Lately, I love stripes, so why not try it on the wall? So I decided to paint our dining room wall and am really proud because I did this all by myself! This is what I do all day without a job, use all my creative energy to decorate our house. Which, speaking of jobs, I just got an amazing job as a donor center supervisor at Carter Blood Services and I start Sept. 8th!! Which is a very good thing, although I might cry when I have to go back to work. Until then, my next projects are to stain the kitchen table and some oil paintings.

ok. you were so right the stripes are amazing. and no i don't think they are too thin. it really does look perfect. how are you going to stain the table? if you buy a sander (which is what we did) go with a belt sander. and what are you saying about paintings? popping them out like there's nothing to it. tell me what you're doing cause i need some too. teach me! anyway, i hope everything was ok on thursday, call me back.

This looks so good! There is more of a color contrast than I was expecting, but it looks really great! You are an awesome decorator.
Love, Mom

I'm impressed...looks great. You are so creative...I wish I had more in me. Glad you found a job and hope it goes well for you. by the way, Clinton said you'll have to get into the Dallas Stars Hockey team. We love hockey and that's our team! GO STARS! anyway, I've been busy lately with school starting and haven't had a chance to catch up on you guys, and for some reason I can't add your blog to mine! I need to figure out what is going on with my computer! I was sad to miss you at the reunion, but we had to leave early anyway. Good luck in school Dan!

Congrats on the job! We are moved into our new house. I am so excited to spend my time redecorating, refinishing and not so much re-cleaning.
