I'm So Excited...

...And I just can't hide it!!!

Happy Monday folks! Hope you had a great weekend. What's that you say? How was my weekend?! Well, I'm soo glad you asked... My weekend was simply marvelous. It started with my hubby, T, getting off work early and being able to spend a few extra hours with us. We made it a movie night and watched a kid movie with our oldest and then when it was time for bed we watched a movie for us. Saturday we woke up early and headed out to do some things that were on our list.

We officially started looking for a bunk bed to go in the boy's room. The only requirement was that we wanted a twin over full or a twin over twin with trundle; but when we started looking I added another requirement, and that was for it to have stairs instead of the ladder. I feel much safer having the staircase as opposed to the ladder especially since both of my children are under the age of 6. I feel the staircase is more kid-friendly. Our oldest was so excited to be in the furniture store looking for his big boy bed.

And now for the reason I'm so excited...

I got paint for the kid's dresser! I know, I know super exciting huh? Well here's the best part... it was free. Ah, so you've decided to join in on my excitement, huh? Yes it's true, ACE hardware was giving away free quart samples of Clark+Kensington paint and primer in one. All you had to do was pick your poison, I mean color choice, and then fill out a simple form. That's it!

I chose a pretty blue color called Sapphire. It's like a midnight blue shade. I'm kinda crushing on that color pretty hard. It's been a long time favorite of mine. It was a pretty decent collection of choices so it was hard picking the color I wanted; but once I saw Sapphire, it just spoke to me. But just to be sure that we really do like it I will be re-painting a stool/chair that goes to his desk. This way if we aren't as crazy for it once it's lived on the furniture, we haven't committed a whole dresser to the color.

This is my first major DIY project in the room and I can't wait to get it started. I will definitely be posting up pictures.

What projects do you have going on around the house?
