We painted...

It was time for an update in our little corner of the church building so we picked out some colors that we thought would add some...well, color and excitment and energy to the room. :) After waffling back and forth, back and forth...and back and forth I finally went with our choices and nervously awaited the outcome. As you can see below it is still a work in progress, do the bare walls give it away? I have to wait till Kristin gets back before much more happens, I certainly can't do the rest without her. :)

Here are some before pictures. As you will be able to tell, we were sampling paints at this point.

And the after shots...
So?? What do you think? Quite a difference, huh? I've gotten quite a few shocked visitors, that has definitely been fun. Oh, and did I already mention that I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT? Cause I do. What can I say, I'm partial to green. So, shout outs to Bobby and all the other B&G guys who helped paint it (especially Bobby for putting up with all my waffling), Kristin for helping pick the colors, Ryan for being supportive of what Kristin and I pretty much told him we were doing, Bri Moyer for going with me to make the final decisions and purchases and for being there for me in my time of paint color breakdown. You all rock! Thanks a million!!
The next big thing would be to get rid of that oh so not pretty blue (sort of) carpet that is stained from the many spills that happen in an office that has Jr. High and High School students running through it all day long. Don't you think we should get black and white tile? That would be awesome!

The new colors are fabulous! I love them...I keep coming to find you sitting next to them but you've been gone for the day every time. Alas... that just means we will have to hang out soon away from your work! Allison
