When I got home I realized that the color was not going to work. I love lime green but with my bedroom walls, it was not going to work.
So, it was my goal yesterday to paint it. It had the distressed look when I bought it so I was trying to keep it that way, but here's how it turned out.
Isn't my owl cute?!
Its not really distressed, it just kind of shadow painted. I like the way it turned out though.
Since I was in the painting mood and I had everything out, I also painted the letters on our door.
Amy and I have had these letters for a long time and I had painted them before. Amy's was pink and purple, with stars and hearts. Not Amy at all! Mine was solid lime green. I had done hers and got tires so I never finished mine. Today was different though, I was going to do both and make them look nice.
Amy is not this prissy little girl that likes pink anymore. She doesn't mind it but its not her color; and neither is purple. She is very patriotic. Red, White and Blue are her colors. Her birthday this year is going to be 4th of July themed; in December. She has a flag on the wall over her bed, a flag pot on her desk, and multiple pairs of patriotic earrings.
So it was not hard trying to figure out what colors I was to do on her letter. Here's how it turned out.
Have a blessed day.
