Another one to add to the portfolio!!!

On Tuesday, May 12th, Keven and I were able to complete another room! This is #3 for us and we just absolutely love doing it! I haven't posted the second room we did yet, but I thought I would post this most recent one. My sister in law and brother have lived at their house for 3 years, but didn't get anything done, because they didn't know how long they would be there. (Does that sound familiar to some of you?!) SO Rachel decided that she just wanted to get it done before the baby comes...which means....we were excited! :) We went out before but Jason and Rachel just didn't know what colors they wanted or liked. So we just went looking for ideas. They went to Hawaii last week and when they came back, Jason knew he wanted a room that had somewhat of a Hawaii theme and some green. Rachel is a photographer, so when they were in Hawaii, she took a lot of sweet nature pictures! So Monday, when Jason was at work, we went out shopping. We had to be back by a certain time so he wouldn't know what we were doing. We left the stuff in our car, hung out there for a bit after he came home, and then went back to my parents house. We told him we were leaving that day back to Costa Mesa. On Tuesday, Jason was going into work at 10:00...or so he thought. But he didn't end up leaving until 11:30 or so! Rachel was texting me and trying to tell him to leave without being too obvious! :) Eventually he left and we met up at Lowes. we picked up the remaining items and headed back home. We started painting at 2:30 and finished the room by 8:30 before Jason came home. We hid in the kids room and when we heard, "What the heck?!" coming from the other room...we knew it was our que! We ran in the room and his reaction made the whole day! We were so excited to do another room and to have our "clients" be pleased with the outcome. People are starting to say we should do this on the side...I'm starting to believe them. The best part of what we do....we have the feminity with me, but we have the masculine part with Keven being there too. So the husbands can never say the room is too girly and the girls will never say it's a bachelors pad! :) I love being able to get it done in a day too...it makes it that much more exciting! ENJOY THE BEFORE AND AFTERS! :) *IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYONE THAT HAS HAD A ROOM(s) THAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO BE DONE WITH...LET US KNOW...WE'LL BE HAPPY TO COMPLETE IT IN A DAY! :)

wow you guys are good! you should seriously start to do it on the side, i'll recommend you to anyone who says they need help! I need you guys' ideas!!! (before i forget to type it, i LOVE the hawaii bedroom you did!) Okay so we painted our room blue-the ajoining bathroom is brown/tan, so blue was our best best. but it's a big room and the blue came out a very "sky blue" so it's overwelming! our furniture-sleighbed, two night stands and a long dresser are a dark brown with hint of red... our comforter is chocolate brown. and we are using orange to accent, we have white sheets wiht an orange print. and some other sheets that are just orange :)-sounds wierd but i love it and so does my husband. our blinds are white and all the trim and door are white. what to do??? we want to do heavy/thick chocolate brown drape things...but what do you think would pull it all together? there is NOTHING on the walls yet, we haven't really had time and money to go search. but if you have any ideas i would love it!!! thanks
