Monday Motivation...

Monday Motivation...
I look around the house and see so many projects that need my attention. But with 3 small children to keep me busy, those projects are on hold. That is until I feel like staying up all night to paint trim. One of the items on my list. For some reason trim work intimidates me. I'll paint anything else, but when I think about all of that trim my hand starts to cramp. So for now I'll just swoon over these lovely images. Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week!
Happy Monday!

I have several baseboards that cold use a good touch up, but other projects always seem to be more fun for me! Have a great Monday.

It is sooo hard to get things done with small children. I always felt guilty not playing with them when I had to clean or get anything done. I tried to involve them in what I was doing. Unfortunately, I don't think you want the kiddies painting the trim!

Yes, me too, I often end up doing only 5 minutes of painting at a time, but at least that's 5 minutes done and it all adds up. Somehow I painted all the doors in our house at about a square foot per year.

Hey Girl... we might make an offer on an old house in Eastwood Lake. It's an old english style. Wood beams... little diamond pane windows... etc. Really neat and lots of character. Anyway, my style is warm and cozy comfy... not at all "modern and sleek". Oversized furniture, lots of picture frames, etc. Sort of Southern Living/with a strong Tuscan flare. But warmer than Southern Living. Makes sense?!? :-)
ANYHOO!!! Maybe you can find me some decorating inspiration. We will be re-doing the entire house.

Ugh, tell me about it. And I don't even have 3 little ones to distract me! Replacing/painting our baseboards is up there on our list. Oy! I can already feel the carpal tunnel.....
