That was just my attention grabber today. I've been getting harassed about posting pictures of my hot bod so there ya have it. Moving on to the fun stuff!
I LOVE a good before/after. I mean who doesn't? I'm not a huge tv watcher but my favorite is the last 5 minutes of a home makeover show or even just a good old fashioned makeover... Not to mention The Biggest Loser Finale! Anyway, I have some doozy before pictures of our new place :) It came with some cray-zy paint jobs. Since it's just a rental we can't do any major overhauls but paint was a definite MUST. So without any further ado, our kitchen before:
Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures before the maintenance guy primed it but you would have loved the neon green! And now for the after(ish). I apologize it's not as dramatic without the full effect but we'll call this phase 1.
I'm fairly obsessed with AQUA everything and I used the best gift ever as an inspiration color for my new kitchen. It's an extremely small kitchen so I decided I had the right to go bold with the color. Sweet Bekah helped me paint the whole thing and is coming back for more next Friday. What a great friend! The cabinets are going white in round 2 and hopefully very soon we'll have some new cabinet additions on the other side (so I'll wait on those pictures).
Finally, one more of the baby belly. It's really lovely I know. Hunter got me at work in my paintin' clothes. I don't exactly have any maternity sized old paint t-shirts lying around... so as you can see this one's working pretty hard :) This is in the living room, but that's for another day.
*I must note that Hunter didn't want me posting this picture for fear he would be judged as a bad husband for letting his pregnant wife paint. Not to worry folks. I did my homework and painted with every window and door wide open. Not to mention I took frequent breaks and used Olympic's no VOC/ low fume paint. It doesn't even smell like paint in here people. I swear! Painting is extremely therapeutic and rewarding to me and I'm very glad it was safe for me to tackle and one less thing to have to pass over to hubby :)
