The Hubs and I are a lot alike. I've been preaching that we need to declutter the classroom for days now. It isn't horrible up in there, just, well... shouldn't part 2 be the decluttered clean room and then part 3 the painted room??? We are impatient people I think. We like to hop to the fun part. Let's just paint right around that junk! Problem is, we'll either put off the decluttering for a long, long time or pretend it doesn't exist.
Alas, here's what it looks like now. I was told to not take the Hubs' picture... I told him he wasn't in these. Our secret, mmmmkay???
The yellow looks great! I wanted a warm yet somehow bright color and this one worked perfectly. It also doesn't stick out with the colors in the rooms surrounding it. (Well, maybe my bright orange laundry room, but that's MY laundry room and MY orange... stay the hell out of the laundry room... ahem.) While at Home Depot picking out colors, Coop decided brown or black would be the very best colors and nothing else will do... he's learning to deal.
A really unique and special add on to our "classroom" is the water hose running through the middle of it, don't cha think?? Really spectacular. This is our "repair" for the effed-up-laundry-situation... straight out the garage and watering the grass... and driveway... and whatever. It's a new external pump we need. We also need 12 more hours a day and 2 more days a week. No big whoop, right? We'll get there.
So, next few steps... rug, armchair, bulletin board, big ol' map... oh, and decluttering... argh. Almost there! I think we'll be starting school August 8th!
