Well, I'm happy to report that our play/school room room is coming along quite nicely as you can clearly see in this picture. ha.
I promised Handy Andy that since our "To-Do" list is a mile long, i would only paint this room if i could get it done while he was on a trip. Well, i did it! After 10 million paint chips taped to the wall i decided on "Eloquent Ivory" by Glidden, bought a gallon and used every spare moment (even if the kids ended up tunneling in the huge pile while i painted) to get it done while he was flying. And yes, ended up with paint splotches all over us, but it was worth it. Handy Andy on the other hand had to be very optimistic to see that this "progress" was worth it instead of seeing it as a huge step in the opposite direction. And to be honest, when i stepped back and saw the gigantic mess i had created, i was kinda doubtful myself.
