"lipstick"

where do i start...well i could start with the fact that since cam & i have been married we have lived in 7 different places (in 10 years) and thus i've gotten use to living in places that aren't usually "my style" (whatever that is...) or i could start with the fact that i do not paint - i once painted A room when savannah was born but it didn't go so great so i just don't paint...
but i guess i will start with this...
so a few weeks ago, we decided to get new countertops...im on a walk with my sister and she is like "you should totally re-paint your cabinets while your at it" i blew her off like fire on a marshmellow, quickly. then my friend nachelle was talking about re-painting her bunkbeds & that is something i had been wanting to do to the girls bunkbeds as well...she was like, "you can totally do it!" but the kicker came when i was on a run with my "friend" heather (im using friend lightly here because my new motto is "friends, don't let friends, PAINT!" heather, if your reading this just kidding girl...if your not reading this, im totally not kidding! lol) early one morning - two weeks ago! i was talking about my countertops & how i really wanted white cabinets and she totally convinced me..."you can do it!" she said ..."it's like putting on LIPSTICK!" i ran the idea past cam and he neither agreed or disagreed but said he was totally not involved...so within 24 hours...
i had taken all the cabinets off by myself and...

repainted the cabinets...luv you girl...you totally rocked this out with me!

not bad right...trust me it does get bad...


i rented a paint sprayer from home depot...heather started spraying and we started getting a little confident...first coat...looks promising...until the wind picked up & it started to rain...right onto my cabinet doors...so i basically had a breakdown...drove myself to mcdonalds and ate a cheeseburger in the parking lot and worked up the gusto to call cam and beg for his help (and forgiveness :)...or better yet, i thought can't we pay someone to finish the job?!?!


cam went from zero to hero in a matter of days...he luved that paint sprayer gun...and a big thanks to our friend who let us borrow theirs for a few days...


my dad was in town for the weekend and did a great job taping
up the garage for us...
so here you go...pretty legit right.


ps...yes, im crazy...i did the bunkbeds & a dresser too!
how cute did they turn out!!!

pss...im never painting again.
