Unpacking, Painting and Getting it Right

It’s been awhile since I posted about the house and how things are coming along.  I’ve had to work more, and my unpacking fairies have lain around on the job a bit too much.

The bathroom that Lindsey was painting earlier, I repainted.  At certain times of the day the light would hit the walls just right and the room started to look peach colored.  I like peach, it’s a pretty color, but it’s not me.  So, I repainted my bathroom Peanut Butter – that’s the color name for the paint.  It looks like a warm gold in that room and I like it better. 

I’m designing my room differently this time around.  Why? Because my life has had so many changes these last few years that I want variety, I want versatile, I want to be able to adjust things without having to reinvent them each time.  I’m getting off subject, I will share more on that when I finally get the room done.

This is my bathroom, mostly red and warm brownish-gold.  It has a very comforting and relaxing feel and I love that.  I found an interesting sconce to put on the wall – saying Live, Laugh, Love that it very pretty when the candles are lit.

I have a castle that you can burn incense cones in too.  It’s quiet nice when lit, it sends incense up through the little windows and helps create a nice place to escape with a hot bath after a hard day. 

I also installed a shower thingy! Ha, yes, that is my technical term.  The shower head that was in the bathroom was atrocious and plain, so it had to be replaced.   There are a few more things I want to do to the bathroom, but there are so many other projects I need to finish, that I will have to get back to the final touches in a bit.  Eventually I will paint a border of some kind around the top of the bathroom, I just haven’t decided exactly what that will look like yet.

Life is a gift, not to be wasted or taken for granted. I believe life is a journey, that we are put here for a purpose that each of us has to discover within ourselves. Each day we are given is a new opportunity to seize the moments, the experiences that make up our individual journey. I have seen my share of storms along the way, but have learned that with faith and good friends, there is nothing that you can’t face, learn from, and come out growing stronger from the experience. I have many interests, hobbies and passions. Writing, art, and expanding my knowledge about why people believe what they do, including studying different religions and cultures, becoming a Life Coach, practicing Reiki, and spending time with my girls, are some of my passions. Interests include: studying history, science, physics, walking/running, learning yoga, Pilates, trying new recipes, finding new and interesting places to visit, spending time with friends, learning new ways of doing things, guitar, piano, writing songs, photography, and painting and so much more than I could name here. I enjoy meeting new people, trading stories, ideas and sharing experiences. I love going to plays and concerts, and encouraging others to be their best while finding myself along the way.

  1. You get some really funny paint names, don’t you?
    A couple of my favourites are “telephone black” and “white white”.
