It Always Gets Ugly Before it Gets Pretty

In case you were feeling overwhelmed with chaos in your home, I just wanted you to know, you’re not alone.  And perhaps, these pictures will make you feel better because when you paint floors you have to empty the room.  Which means…


…you have to squish all that room’s furniture into another room.


…and the hallway.


And when it’s the playroom, then there’s toys.  Those get shoved on window sills…


…and on unfinished stairs…


and in foyers to welcome your friends with a quick game of Nerf guns or dinosaurs.


…and who doesn’t want to play dress up and magna doodle in the middle of the kitchen, right?


And I’m sure this couch is way more comfortable with every pillow in the house on it.


And all the movies in one spot.  Who’s up for movie night?


So in case you were feeling overwhelmed, I hope my chaos, made you feel better about your chaos.  Smile  (And this was the edited version of the chaos.  You can only imagine!)


  1. I know how you feel! I have so many projects that I'm working on right now that I don't know where to begin. I ripped the carpet off our stairs in July and am still trying to finish them! One thing leads to another and before you know it the whole house is chaos!

    Hopefully you'll get some projects finished soon!

  2. I have been there. It really is a game of dominoes, once you touch one thing....they all fall. I love the look of painted floors. Good luck.
