The Next Project…

Hope you all had a great Easter! I wanted to fill you in on what’s going on in this brain of mine. You see, I have a little problem of starting projects and not finishing them. Well I finish them up until the last final details sometimes (like ummm, the nursery!) and then start something new. I usually have about 5-10 different things going on at once. No lie. My brain is always spinning its wheels of new ideas and projects. But seriously I MUST hang stuff up on the walls in the nursery and photograph the room for you all because it really is pretty!! Haha. Goodness by the time I get it posted for you all it will be time to make her a big girl room. Ugh. Soon. Real soon. Make me do it.

Moving on…

So last week in my never-ending wheel-spinnin’ brain, I decided I wanted to do something. People are always painting their furniture and such different colors, so instead of white or black which is safe, I’m going to use this color…

on this.

Yes I’m going to paint our bathroom vanity coral! And I’m so excited about it! I already have the paint for it too so I’ll be starting it possibly today. I have to buy another brush because I left my last one in the fridge too long and ruined it. Gah.

And no, this is not an April fools joke. :)

I haven’t seen too many colored vanities around so I hope it turns out good. With some pretty new knobs it should be fabulous. :) And I need to paint the walls too–maybe just a white? I don’t know still. What color do you think?

I’ll keep you posted on the cabinets. Then of course I’ll need new bath rugs and towels. And maybe paint the frame around the mirror. Haha. Every small makeover turns out to be a bigger one. Hopefully I will get to show you the reveal sometime this year. Slow and steady wins the race right? ;)

Oh and here’s a pic of me and my little sailor girls on Easter.

Aren’t they sweet? I wish you could see full frontal full length pics because their dresses were so stinkin’ cute. But umm, taking pics is not an easy task any longer. And hopefully my husband can be in the pics one day too! (he plays at the church all day so he wasn’t here for pics). And see, I told you I love orange and aqua!

What are you up to these days? Do you suffer from DADD too (decorating ADD)?

  1. yes — I totally suffer DADD!! Love that coral color, and think it will be fab in your bathroom! My mom recently painted her vanity a deep red, and I was shocked at how good it looked. And you and the girls look adorable…congrats on all that weight lost!! You look amazing!!

  2. I am right there with ya. Got a couple of those projects going on. Love the coral color. I am using a coral in my new craft room. The girls are so cute! And, you look amazing!!

  3. Love it! I have been using that color in my gray/cream colored office as my pop of color. Most recently I have been on the hunt for a shelf that I can tackle in that color too! I can’t wait to see the pictures! Also, great picture of you and the girls!

  4. I’m learning from reading blogs that many have the DADD disease so I feel in good company! Thank God for patient husbands! You look great and your daughters are precious! What adorable outfits! You are brave to paint that coral, but I think it will be great. My hubby would never go for that. He thinks painted furniture/cabinetry looks cheap, ugh! I’m trying to break him in slowly……………. ;)

  5. You and your girls are so very beautiful! You made me realize with this post how much MY family really needs a new family portrait done. I should get on that! I just noticed on your sidebar that you lost 25 lbs. Nice work! That is wonderful. We have a ‘Beat the Bulge’ continuous link party for people to share their healthy eating, exercise and success stories with each other. It’s nice to have others that are trying to change their lives and be more healthy to share with.
    I love the idea of a colorful vanity! Can’t wait to see how it looks. White walls sounds like a fresh choice to let it shine too. :) Have fun!!!
    Wow…long comment…sorry! ;)

    • Thank you so much Sherry! Yay for healthy eating! And yea, the more I think about it I think white would be nice too. I should just do it now before I change my mind again. :)

  6. Adorable pic of you and your daughters! Love all the pretty outfits!
    Can’t wait to see how your vanity turns out. All your decorating posts have gotten me in the mood to do just that, my daughter and I were decorating our sideboard and dining table a few days ago for Spring.Hope you had a beautiful Easter day!

  7. What about white walls with a pearl glaze on top..?

  8. I absolutely suffer from that! I am exactly the same, where I get about 85% of the project done and the last 15% takes me forever to get finished. And it also means I have about 10 projects going on at once. Once I get an idea, I just want to go. Not very efficient, but you do what you have to do! Lately I have been trying to be better about finishing things up before I move on to something else! Doesn’t always work, but I am getting there. :)

  9. You guys are absolutely lovely. Your oldest should be modelling for the littles catalogs and commercials. So sweet.

    My hubby is never in pictures. My son calls him Poppa-rotzi. :) I
    I finally captured him in a pic. with our new grandson.

  10. Go for it….the good thing about painted furniture is just like painted walls, they can always be repainted but we think painted furniture is the only way to go! Girls look adorable!

  11. Ohhh that color is just so fun and fabulous! And it is just paint! Good for you! go for it! I hate the posts that say…oh, what about resale? well, it is just paint! Have fun while you can! And that teaches your kidlets to think outside the box too, to be more daring and find themselves! Super!

  12. Beautiful color and yes, white walls will really make it pop! Go for it ~ we only go around once and need to make every minute count. If it makes you happy, so be it!

    You and the girls look beautiful! They are totally adorable and always smiling. Great photo ~


  13. Your daughters look adorable! Good luck with your bathroom redo — I have no frame on my bathroom mirror. Did you put yours up? My mirror has those big clips that stick out (not the flat clips), so I have no idea how to add a frame!

  14. Luv the pic of you and the girls. Your girls are precious. I wish I had a husband who would let me paint our vanity (he is quite boring and doesn’t like color on the walls, either – pooh on him!). =)

    I read the comment above from Lauren@momhomeguide about how to frame a vanity mirror. I found a few bog posts on framing a vanity mirror. It is on my list of projects to tackle. I didn’t feel right about posting url’s on your blog, but can pass them on to you if you would like.

    I can’t wait to see your progress. Thanks for sharing.

  15. A pale or charcoal gray might look awesome with the coral

  16. Thanks! I’ll have t!o look into those MirrorMate frames!

  17. I recently painted our guest bathroom vanity coral and I LOVE it! It’s so cheery! You can see it here if you’re interested :)

  18. a) You look GREAT, girl! So pretty and your munchkins are adorbs : ) and b) I CANNOT wait to see this coral vanity, it sounds amazing. I think I’ve seen one painted a pink/coral and it looked incredible (Life in Grace blog?). Can’t wait to see yours!


  1. […] toys, so I figure I should name my projects too. Isn’t she pretty? And so fun and unexpected! When I mentioned before about this project, I said in that post that I haven’t seen many coral vanities around. White and black yes. But […]
