BULLIES come in all ages

BULLIES come in all ages
(click to see movie trailer)

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Color My World

When we built our house 11 years ago, I did the practical thing and picked  neutral paint colors, intending to repaint after having time to decide on my color scheme.

I am obviously easily pleased because eleven years later I  have the same neutral, boring walls throughout the house.


I was inspired by the bright colors in Ina's beautiful Anchorage home and convinced Hubby it was time to start coloring our world by painting the master bathroom. 

Choosing the color was the easy part.

(Notice I bought a new flat screen TV.
Yeah, I like to watch TV while I soak in the tub.)

I think the green is soothing like a spa.

Hubby is doing most of the work and is doing an excellent job. I see many more painting projects in his future.
I'll add more photos when the bathroom is completed.
This project is being temporarily interrupted by circumstances beyond my control, well kind of....
(to be cont.)

Happy Trails,

Oh Kit!...it's beautiful!
I wish my husband was interested in painting! You must be thrilled with the outcome! Wow...another 'Masterpiece'
With love

I have the same picture that you do over the TV!
Interesting that you would say that about colors. I'm in the midst of trying to decide what color to paint our white walls, and thought I'd stick with plain ole white...But after seeing the difference it made for your walls, maybe I won't!

Love it!!! Adds depth and life to the room, doesn't it? My master bath walls are waiting for my paint brush now...


Kathy said...

A very soothing and spa like bathroom!
Such decadence, a flat screen while you soak! That sounds like a real spa!
How do you keep the labs from joining your "swim"?! LOL

Frankie Furter said...

Hummmmmm I can't wait to see what has put the project on hold.

MISTAYA said...

What a lovely color choice. Doesn't a change feel so good?

Oooh, that looks great! That kind of art-deco green is exactly the color I would've chosen, too. Very nice!

JackDaddy said...

The green IS beautiful. When you get done, would you like to come to our house and show us your mad painting skills? :)

I love the new color. I liked the before photo a lot, but once I saw the after... huge difference. Love it! Isn't blogland grand? BOL

The OP Pack said...

Such a beautiful comforting color you have chosen. We have a TV in our big bathroom too:) The humans use it a lot, well, mostly Dad. We have lots of neutrals here too, but plans are developing for some changes.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

We started painting our house all sorts of colors this past year ..we needed some "life" in here..although I was festive enough I think,,BOL! :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Very nice, Kit... I love your 'new' bathroom.... I am still living with those old neutral colors here. ha ha


Ruby's Raiser said...

That is a beautiful color! Great choice. Our soothing green bathroom came out more Kermit than spa. ;)

Beautiful color! It looks great!

Sam said...

I'm a bit of a coward when it comes to painting! I'm glad our house came pre-painted in colors I like! The bathroom is beautiful.
