To all of my readers and "followers", thanks for all your questions, comments, and advice! I love it! I may not be able to write huge honker emails to most of you all the time, or even a quick comment on your blog, but I DO visit your blogs and check all of you out! You are all amazing :)
Here are some FAQs I thought I would address so I didn't have to send a million emails out!
Q: Is the Sage Gray a more gray or a blue?
A: This is how I think of the Sage Gray in my office: A muted blue with gray mixed in to tone it down, and a kiss of green. Definitely more blue than gray. And definitely not green, but it is there if you look for it. More of a "live able" blue than a bathroom blue. It mainly always stays the same color in any light, so it is trustworthy and predictable. I always know what color my Sage Gray will be; a blue with a touch of gray to mute it out... oh, and a kiss of green :)
Q: Where did you get that painting above your bed?
A: Bed Bath and Beyond. I never buy anything full price there, I collect their 20% Off coupons that come in the mail (did you know they never expire! I used one from a year ago the other day!!). So everything I get is a deal. oh, and I just LOVE this painting. It has the brush strokes and detail that make you think it is the original, but really it's not. LOVE LOVE!!
Q: How do you paint with 3 little ones? When do you find time??
A: I paint when they go down for naps or bedtime. I do all the taping and prep work while they are up and running, so the second they are in their rooms asleep I start painting!! The banister was a different story. It took so long to prep & paint my husband had to lock the kiddos and himself in the playroom and play with them for hours while I painted. Finally he saw I would have been 100 yrs old if I did it all myself, so during naps he helped me finish it fast- thanks hubby!!
But I have to say that the late nights I paint are actually VERY relaxing for me. I love it!! Nothing is more soothing than painting fresh paint, a new color, a new beginning, while listening to music other than Disney & Baby Einstein. I always say paint is the easiest, cheapest, and quickest way to change a room. I can't wait to paint that kitchen, I am itching to do it ASAP!!!
Q:Where did you get your bedding?
A: BBB!! On the Clearance Rack (where else?) and with my 20% off coupon! SCORE! I was originally going to make it myself (ok, so have my mom help me make it because I don't sew...) but I quickly realized that it is almost cheaper to buy "bed in a bag" on sale! It is a comforter, NOT a duvet. My husband and I quickly realized we hate duvets (the sagging, unfit, sloppy droopy look, the constant "fluffing"...), we just wanted a nice fitted comforter and we are happy! (future post: "how to have a heavenly bed")
Q: Where can I find a handy hubby like yours?
A: K, so this wasn't really a question.... but a lot of you have said how lucky I am to have such a handy man around. So for my husband, a BIG SHOUT OUT "Thank you!! You make all my dreams come true" ... now can we get to that kitchen???.....:)
