My Feet Might Fall Off

September 14, 2009 at 8:38 am 22 comments

I. am. so. tired.


The end.

Really. That’s all I have to offer today.


Because my mom and I spent about 12. 5 hours painting my living room on Saturday.


Then I slept. And then I went to church.

And after church, I spent another 5+ hours on the final coat.

And I can’t even think straight right now. (Hence the crooked photo.)


All I can do is sit here, read a bit on my Google Reader, watch Iron Chef, and admire my messy living room and beautifully painted walls.


With wine, of course.


*Once we put the furniture back and pick up the living room, I’ll take a few more photos to show you.

    It looks great, Chelsea! And I guess Lauren and I can both sympathize with the tiredness today.

    As soon as I can get photos of our weekend project, you’ll see why John and I aren’t happy that it’s already Monday.

    I kid you not … my paneling is painted almost this exact same color. Only my dad did it for me. We aren’t home improvement people. 🙂

    The living room looks great!

    I didn’t hear about the Beyonce thing until this morning, but I will admit that when I heard about it on the radio I got a little teary eyed. I am not even a Taylor Swift fan…what Kanye did just wasn’t cool.

    It looks soo goo! I can’t wait to see it in person! Also, the first pic, Molly is watching TV…so cute! I’ll consider that today’s daily Molly pic.

    goo = good

    WOW! What a difference. I love that you left the beams natural. It looks so great!

    Looks great!!

    looks great. We had our paneling painted about 6 years ago and I think it really updates things tons. We paid someone to do ours and I am so glad we did. It seems like ALOT of work and I suck at painting!

    What a beauitful living room-lovely job! I hope the pain has worn off now and you can just enjoy the beautiful work you did =)

    Way to go! It’s like a complete transformation! Looks great and worth all the time and effort!

  • 12. Maureen  |  September 14, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    It looks beautiful!

  • 13. Jimbo  |  September 14, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Chelsea! It looks fabulous!!
    Way to be diligent and get it done!!

  • 14. Jimbo  |  September 14, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    And why it’s signed in as Jimbo- I’m not sure, but I clearly remember typing my stuff in- oh well, I’m sure he thinks it looks good to!

  • 15. DebbieQ  |  September 14, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    It looks splendid. “Splendid” was always my grandfather’s favorite word. “Oh that’s just splendid” meant it was good indeed.

  • 16. Big W-D  |  September 14, 2009 at 9:42 pm

    I like it a lot! I’ll be honest, I liked the wood, but I like the painted walls even better.

  • 17. The Husband  |  September 14, 2009 at 10:38 pm

    My wife is so productive it’s insane!

    It looks great! I too liked the wood, but it is so much brighter in here it’s ridiculously better than the wood paneling.

  • 18. Erin  |  September 15, 2009 at 8:52 am

    It looks so great!! I’ve been procrastinating at painting my living room… totally need to!

  • 19. Gabby  |  September 15, 2009 at 9:02 am

    It looks great. You are gonna love how light and airy it feels without the wood paneling! You go! Keep up the good work!

    I love the beamed ceilings, too!

  • 20. mbowman7  |  September 15, 2009 at 10:10 am

    Looks great ! I love the lighter color !

  • 21. Ashley  |  September 15, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    What a difference! Looks like it was a 17.5 hours well spent!

  • 22. Amber Warren  |  September 16, 2009 at 1:44 pm

    Your house is beautiful!
