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 random.org and our luck winner of the stunning Leona necklace is...
Congrats, friend! Catelyn Penick, the stylist for our trunk show will be contacting you to receive your necklace.
Have a wonderful, wonderful week, everyone!
