- an itsy - bitsy teeny - weeny mini - micro - makeover . . . OH! And a BIG P.S.! (Hint - a GIVEAWAY?)

Saturday I painted the dining room! Or, you could say I re-painted it, since I have painted it many many times before.


Before shot -


My little helper
After -




And even though these pictures are not AT ALL dramatic,
those who know how a room FEELS when it has fresh paint,
well, a picture can't capture That.
All clean and cozy and fresh.

Just close you eyes and imagine. . .
OH! And A BIG P.S -
The next Post is my 100th!
Should I make it a big deal, or just let it slide?
I'm thinking a giveaway or a contest of some sort . . .
what d'ya say, girls?
I need some help here!
so . . . OK, so if I do a giveaway, should it be:
~an apron? (i'm really into them these days, cuz I found a super cute pattern and really cute fabrics)
~some jewelry? (does anyone have any suggestions? I see a lot of cute stuff on the jewelry blogs)or -
~a favorite CD of your choice?
Or if you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them!

It is always fun to get a new paint job. It just makes everything seem new.
