Something Pretty

Okay, so I officially hate drywall!  Well at least the sanding it part.  I thought that I would look at some pretty stuff because I cant see anything {literally because all of the dust}  So here is some of my inspiration motivation!  I need it, and a shower!

Benjamin Moore Natura Paint

{So I am thinking about going this route, it sounds great to me, have any of  you used it?}



I am loving the stripes.

I cannot wait to get my bed out of storage...It has been a little over a year since we have slept in our own bed!  I cannot wait till that first night to sleep in it!

This is post #98 - On post #100 I will be featuring my giveaway, for all of my blogger friends who have stayed faithful and patient through this renovation that is sucking the life out of me!
Any advice on how to get through this renovation!?!  I need some uplifting, the end seems so far away!

I haven't used that kind in particular but I just painted our bedroom with BM paint and I LOVED it. I've used every brand under the sun and it was my favorite...such good quality.

I have never used that brand but I think I will next time we paint! Our house doesn't ventilate that well so this would be perfect! lol Wish I had some magic words that would make this easier for you! Hang in there!

OOooh that paint is so pretty! I know that the renovation must totally suck, but at the same time...you get to do everything yourself! The way you want it! You can reinvent your house! When it is all done, you'll have something you're very, very proud of. I still rent and cannot WAIT until I own something that I can PAINT!

Well I'm sorry to say I haven't painted ever! I was an apartment dweller for so long and when we moved into our house we were lucky enough to find one painted in colors we really liked. So I'm sorry I'm no help! However, I will say I really like the bedroom you found! Very relaxing looking and I love the shape of the headboard.

I think anything you do will look lovely. I would be scared to try the stripes for fear I would totally screw it up. But my hat is off to you if you can pull it off. Takes lots of pictures:)

Just keep your eyes on the future prize! Your house is turning out beautifully! Love the pictures you're using as inspiration!

I am so impressed with your ambition!
We used a low VOC paint in our sons' room a few years ago. It's good for the enviroment - I'm told - and it has held the colour. No complaints so far.
I am so excited to see your finished rooms. Hang in there. Soon you will be relaxing and admiring your efforts.

I can't wait to see the new home unveiled!
