Happy rainy Thursday!
We are entering day three of rain and cloudy days but the weatherman promises that it will be beautiful for Memorial Day so I am so looking forward to some sun and warmer weather.
I am so excited for summer and we are almost done with school and end of the year activities!!
I just want to enjoy the days ahead with no schedules or running from one end of the city to the other.
I need the beach and our deck and life will be good. :)
Over the summer things are going to slow down a bit here at Emerald Cove.
My posts may be spread out a bit and my time at the computer will be limited. My kids are growing so fast and I want to spend time with them while I can, but don't worry I have a project in mind that will keep me occupied and will take my time on.
Right now my son's room is Disney's Cars.
Saying that he loves Cars is an understatement and now with the new movie coming out he is getting pretty excited.
he also has a fascination with sharks.
That's my boy!
He will even watch Shark Week with me, actually both kids do, they love the water like their mama. :)
So, when I saw the shark sheets from Pottery Barn Kids I was so excited.
True story; He was paging through the catalog and saw them as well and said "Mommy can we get these for my room?" I was so proud! (wiping tear away)
So I ordered them the other day.
(apparently they are popular because they are on back order until the end of June)
Right now his room is chocolate brown and I would like to lighten it up a bit as well as paint his dresser and bed a blue to coordinate with the sheets.
I would have taken a picture but it is so dark here that they didn't turn out so well so I will show you one in a later post. :)
Here are the colors that I am leaning towards.
They are actually paints from The Land of Nod and are non toxic Mythcs Paints.
I will have to order some samples soon to compare to the sheets when I get those in.
This is my inspiration room from Potter Barn Kids.
I won't have the plank walls (sadly) and not sure about the other bedding yet but I am hoping that it will resemble this slightly.
Hopefully I can get out my handy little jig saw and paints and maybe make some of the accessories that are shown with the bedding.
So there is my summer project.
I am excited to tackle something again but also glad that I am going to take my time.
I will be posting things as I go, so hopefully you will bare with me. :)
I also hope to hope to finish my Bonus Room this summer but that may have to wait, it is only like 100 degrees up there in the summer and our little air conditioner broke so that may be my fall project. I did manage to get rid of a ton of things and after I cleaned the carpets like 8 times I think I won over the cat pee pee smell......maybe, Michigan humidity will test that out.
I am unplugging for the weekend to spend time with my family over the Memorial holiday. We have a party to attend Friday and Saturday and then we are just going to veg out!!
I hope that you have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day.
