Why yes, thank you Valspar…don’t mind if i do.
Every day, Valspar is giving out 1,000 free paint samples – starting at 9am CST. But these aren’t just any paint samples, these are some of the cutest little paint samples you have ever seen.
The sample (almost 8 fl. oz!) comes with a mini paint tray and roller. Uh..i may have squeed slightly when i opened it. Ridiculousness. Is there anything that comes in a mini size that isn’t cute? I mean i know [redacted] may disagree with that statement…but come on!
So, I ordered a sample of yellow that I was looking at for the Guest Bedroom…and while the dried patches of paint aren’t exactly the shade i wanted, the $5 off coupon included with the sample kit will definitely be used towards a purchase of the right color
So, i will now show a very brief glimpse of the reason why we are currently keeping the door to the guest room shut (you can kind of see the yellow paint sample on the walls – its a little too cold for my liking…i want more of a yellow/light orange color on the walls)
And to the left, the results of an Ikea shopping trip (with free lunch!). Last weekend, Ikea was offering a free lunch with any homegoods purchase over $100. You order, pay, eat (hopefully in that order) and then hand in your receipt at the checkout to have the amount deducted from your total. You know what they say…never look a swedish meatball in the mouth. And i didn’t. But a plateful sure saw mine.
That right there is a bed, mattress and side tables. There’s also some artwork in the back, that needs framing and some cork for a pinboard project i have in the works. I was planning on just leaving it all there until our guests arrive and they can assemble themselves. I figured there was no better way to get family in the DIY spirit!
Taking bookings now…anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Okay, fine. Not really. This weekend the littleb boards a plane to head to TX to spend some time with his mom, brother and sisters, so the Weeb and i planned to get the Guest Room painted on Sunday. This way we are not subjecting him to any yucky paint fumes and we don’t have to stop painting every 5 minutes to go and watch the FUNNIEST youtube video EVAR.
So hopefully this time next week the room will at least be painted….and there will still be a pile of furniture waiting to be assembled
