Paint Projects and Giveaway Winner!

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Hey hey! I know I said I would announce the winner of the Stella & Dot giveaway yesterday, but what can I say, life happened and I just didn't have time to sit down and write a post. My sister and mom just left after spending a fun Labor Day weekend with us. They were supposed to leave yesterday, but their car broke down at the beginning of the trip--which was actually a great thing because it meant that we got an extra day together! Turning lemons into lemonade.
Anyway....this is what our house looks like right now....
Notice anything different?? I decided I was tired of living in a "Peach Crayon" and that it was time for a change. It's amazing what being in your house all day everyday will make you see. We went with the Valspar match of Benjamin Moore's Camoflage--a very light gray-green color that I saw on Centsational Girl.
My whole house is now officially a shade of gray, green, or blue. And I like it. We still aren't done, but I'm hoping we'll knock the rest of this project out tonight. Right now though, the house is a mess and I don't even care.
I'm really great at making my home a constant contruction zone.
Also....I'm thinking of painting the cabinets. Yes. I know. I can already hear the gasps--What??? Pretty white cabinets?! Why on earth would you change them?? Well, because I live in Lubbock. And it's dusty and dirty and I am NO good at keeping them clean (I promise they look much cleaner in the pictures than they actually are). What do you think?? Suggestions? I like the white more now that we have the new color on the walls, but I'm still tempted to change it. I was thinking two-toned...dark on the bottom, light on top.
Now onto the fun! First, I want to thank you all for participating in the Stella & Dot trunk show and giveaway last month! I did the drawing via and our luck winner of the stunning Leona necklace is...
Brittany Fullwood!!
Congrats, friend! Catelyn Penick, the stylist for our trunk show will be contacting you to receive your necklace.
Have a wonderful, wonderful week, everyone!


  1. Love the new color and I think that your cabinets would look great two-toned.

  2. I love the new color! And I say if you're wanting to paint your cabinets than go for it!! :)

  3. After you finish your's, you should come visit me and help me with mine! I know we've said it recently, but I'm overdue for a visit! Miss you!

  4. Looks great! And I personally love white cabinets (that's because I don't have them, of course...), but if you are feeling like you should really paint them, go for it!

  5. Yaaaaaaaay!! Just squealed out loud in bed and scared my husband. I'm SO excited! Thank you, Katy!

    We have white cabinets too and while I love how they look from a distance, up close I notice all the imperfections. I can imagine that in Lubbock they're super hard to keep clean. I say paint away, lady! All your projects turn out amazing.

  6. Superb! Generally I never read whole articles but the way you wrote this information is simply amazing and this kept my interest in reading and I enjoyed dresses

  7. Your house looks gorgeous! And your baby is so adorable :3

    Love that necklace - great find.
