Purple Grapes

I painted Britney's room after we bought this house. She wanted it purple and green, so we picked out a light green for one wall and the other three in a light purple. Then I stenciled dragonflies, hummingbirds, bees, snails and flowers all over. I also made curtains out of this light green and purple fabric. It has bears and a rhyme. She was five at the time and the poor kid and been living in a little girl room for far too long.

She had decided she wanted black walls with red curtains. The only problem is the lighting in that room. It would be SO dark in there if we painted it black! She compromised and decided to go with red walls with black curtains. Other things have come up and I just haven't gotten around to buying her paint. Well, I did try one day at Walmart. They had a mess up gallon of RED that we wanted to look at. The guy opened the can, showed us the paint and then hammered the lid on which splattered the RED paint all over my shirt. I swear he snickered a little before saying he was sorry. We immediately went home and I changed my shirt and then I was like...Walmart owes me a shirt! We went back and the manager reimbursed me for my shirt. Dang it...I liked that shirt, too.

The day before yesterday, we went to Lowe's to pick up a weed eater and to look at paint chips. Britney told me she had changed her mind and wants purple walls with black curtains. We had bought a couple black lights for our Halloween decorations and Bobby told her she could have them for her room. We've been looking at black light posters online and we have some glow in the dark paint. How cool is that going to be?! We also want to make her a loft bed.

The Olympic paint is on sale at Lowe's right now. $5 off a gallon! It's like 15 bucks! Yeah for sales:)
