It's your lucky day - painting furniture
Wasatch Hall as a desk, and then as some more counter/storage space in the Pink House. I used it as a desk again in West Jordan, and here in the Lucky House it served a temporary stint in the guest room before Kev got a more functional (and also free) desk from work. So it's been sitting in the garage for a few months, just waiting for its latest reincarnation.
After the first coat (pictured above) of Behr's Cool Jazz, I asked Aspen how she likes it. She actually used the word "caca" to describe it and went on to say it's not pretty. Which is surprising because blue (and its various shades) is her favorite. I'm glad I'm not painting anything for her room because, man, she's one tough cookie to please. And I know it's always a risk to paint furniture, but this jade blue will do a lot to freshen up the grey walls and dark blue carpet in the nursery. I'm definitely okay with the color, although I was really so-so at first.
This desk will serve as a changing table and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in the room. For now Kev is plowing through our master closet project and I'm pretty giddy about that as well. He's so freakin' talented I can barely stand it. When our bedroom is done (new closet, textured ceiling, paint throughout), we can put the rest of the house back together. It will be AMAZING. It'll be like a whole new house all over again!
