I thought I would be a good mom and do something with the kids room over spring break. I decided to paint my kids room that I have been promising to do for a few years now.
I had an entire theme planned out. THEN.... I went to lunch with my daughter (10 in May). Well it went from my idea ( suggestion of grass and sky, and an area of pink by her top bunk bed) to a Jungle theme. Which is just fine with me! But, the colors have changed like the wind. Rick even got in on the planning.
If that wasn't "too many cooks in the kitchen" enough, I had planned on painting the room by myself. Taped off the areas just as I needed them.
Off to Menard's WE go (Me with 2 of 3 kids). 3 cans of paint later and we, I mean WE start to paint. Me, C (9) D (8) and S (4) all to the lovely serenade of a dog locked in his kennel barking none stop.
Here we are, all but the husband (hmmmm) and the dog and the 45+ other family members, in a 10 X 10 room. All 4 wheelding a paint roller or brush.
OK ... I told them, I only have 3 rules.
1. DO NOT PAINT YOURSELVES OR OTHERS. If you do you are DONE!
2. ONLY PAINT WHERE I HAVE SHOWN YOU! DO NOT... PAINT THE WINDOW AREAS, BASE BOARDS OR DOORS!!
(This photo was the inspiration for the blog. Notice the complete disregard of the blue tape....)
3. DO NOT STEP OFF THE PLASTIC AND ONLY PAINT OVER WHERE THERE IS PLASTIC.
This photo, unfortunately was not captured.
There were small 4 year old size green foot
prints from the bedroom to the bathroom.
As of this morning the plans have yet again changed for the room. SO, I am going to see what I can get done, before they change them around altogether!
