What to do while it's hot outside


Well go inside and tear something up of course .. lol

The hubby and I have been working on our bedroom for the last few weekends. We painted the walls which were a green/gold faux job that I did a few years ago to a gorgeous blue/green that I am madly in love with it is so serene and calming. Homestead Green by Benjamin Moore AC-19 We have also built a wall unit on one wall that has turned out really nice and a matching bed frame. We ripped out the carpet which is turning out to be the toughest job of all. I had to remove all the tactless strips that holds the carpet down and patch all the nail holes because we have decided not to replace the carpet but to try a brand new product from H & C it is so new that out of 3 Sherman Williams stores only one had even heard about it. They are having to order it in for us so in the meantime we are sleeping on the floor.
I remember as a teenager begging mom to let me ditch my bed frame and paint the walls black lol .... Now I'm begging paint man to hurry up. Sleeping on the floor isn't great for a lady that has to get up during the night to potty .. lol .. Our hopes are by Sunday evening to have the floors finished and have the bed back together but in order for that to happen, I had better get back to scraping the paint and sheetrock mud off the floor and then get to sanding the patched areas.. Now where did I leave the Tylenol and i pod ??



Mr. Turtle showed up this weekend. I haven't seen him in awhile. He was munching on grape tomatoes when he would finish one I would throw him another he ate 4 before he moved on .. lol

Have a fun day ya'll
hugs, Cherry

  9. The newly painted blue/green walls look really nice. I love how your kitty cat is protecting those "gorgeous" shoes so that nobody steals them. What kind of turtle is that?

  10. You have great paint color choices! I know you'll be so happy to finish it up. I'll check back for the "after" photos!

    So, you're feeding your turtles! I'm sure you're making that little critter happy.

  13. Good luck with it all..., I'll get back to remodeling after the summer. It's what I do when it's cold out! Now I'm trying to enjoy the little bit of summer that we have here in New England.
