Show Your Colors

My latest post for My Colortopia was all about my kitchen. It has been yellow for five years, and I’m thinking it’s about time for a change. I mean, I don’t stand on the countertops and take weird photos for nothing!

The room does look ages better than it did when we first moved in; I’ll give it that. Behold the before shot.

Right. So then Brandon and I redid the whole thing, and it looked like this.

And it still looks like that today, except with white trim. So now that I have new fabric in mind for the curtains, I’m trying to choose a new wall color.

I (like you, I’m guessing) love before and after shots. Over at My Colortopia, there’s a new Show Your Colors section featuring tons of them from their readers. I like seeing what real people have done to their homes (and imagining what I would do if I was the person that lived there).

If you have any painting projects that you’re proud of, you can share your before and after photos too. You can get a feel for how it works with the widget in this post.

Now, as for my kitchen? I’m thinking green. But that could change tomorrow.

I have been sponsored by Glidden® brand paint to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

How to Make a Terrarium (Video)

Remember the punch bowl that I turned into an open terrarium? I put together a quick little video, showing how I made it.

p.s. Today is the last day to vote for your favorite table setup in the Mystery Box Challenge. You’ll be entered to win all of the items we received in the challenge too, just by voting.

Comic Mishap

Enjoy the complete awesomeness of this paper while you can, because apparently you cannot use those faces in commercial photo shoots. I thought they were fine because of the illustration style, but nope. Lesson learned.

I was in the city at a photo shoot all day today for a (fake) party that I planned. I’ll be on set again all day tomorrow, so I probably won’t be back to my normal posting yet and the Honor Roll may have to wait until next week. There were jets flying nearby in tight air formations today in preparation for the Chicago Air and Water Show. I’m going to think of them as an omen and a metaphor for tomorrow, soaring to great heights in perfect choreography, free of legal usage rights complications. Deal?
