More Art....

because I'm too embarrassed to show you pictures of the still-in-the-middle of painting my bedroom!

OK- not really.... the wainscoting and trim are all done- black as black. The walls and window/door trim is white. However, I need to touch up the white- boy does black show up!! And let me tell you, the crap advertising about the tape that doesn't let paint run under is NOT TRUE.

The louvered doors got held up as I waited to get my mom's sprayer from Pa. Then, when I finally had hubby take them down, he says "why don't you leave them off and just hang some fabric." Cool. I had thought of that, of course, but there is a shortage of money these days, so the fabric will have to wait. That means = ONE big ugly wall right now. Trust me on that one.

This page is for the Paper Digital Art swap I'm in, with the theme "ripped." I didn't take it too literally... Enjoy.

You are right - being out of your element is sometimes good for you!

I can't wait to see the finished room.

You really jumped out there with the bedroom. I can't wait to see it when you have it put together. Sounds really cool. Black and red are both really tough to work with.
Speaking of ripped, we are ripping ut the carpet in Shelby's room and putting in hardwood floors. Gutting the room all week. It was long overdue.
Love you,
