boy bedroom makeover // no more Lucy

I'm a barefoot gal. I'm a history gal. I'm a cooking gal. I'm an ice cream at 3 a.m gal. And, I'm a DIY project gal. I took one glance at my brother's bedroom the other night, marched to my mom, and declared that I would like to redecorate their (my two brothers share the room) bedroom - including ripping the carpet up. She was for it. ;)

 We hopped in the car a few days later, and I drove us to Menards. *smirk* That store has EVERYTHING people, you can buy milk and butter there, okay??? I had already taken all of my brother's things out of their room, which made the painting process waaaaayyy easier. I even re-painted the ceiling! That was a first.. lol!

  Since I painted for 10 hours straight yesterday, I put I love Lucy on.  By the end of the night, I was LUCYIFIED OUT. "RIIIIICCCCCCKKKKKYYYY" *cringe*

Have you ever painted a ceiling?
Do you like Menards??

  1. Ahh I wish I could do that. Every time I ask my parents if I can remodel my room and somebody's room they it's to much work. Well I said I'd do it mom! Lol

  2. Ha. I know those I Love Lucy nights where you actually get tired of the show ( whaaaaaaa?), and know the plot before it happens.

  5. Wow! I really admire your diy personality!;) I think I could be like that...but um, my parents...they just arnt down with that diy-ness and project-ness so I usually don't get to let my diy-juices flow lol! Oh well;)(I feel like I said "diy" too many times just now lol;)

    I love lucy is DA BEST!!!!! I absolutely love that show! Im pretty sure ive seen them all but maybe not. Anyhoo! Like all I love lucy fans like to say; I love I love lucy! (lol;)(that just cracks me up every time!)

    And in answer to your questions;
    No I have painted a ceiling...I would love to though! What color did you paint your brothers ceiling? Im guessing white?

    And I actually didn't know about menards...I kinda assumed it was like a grocery store...when you said in your post "you can buy milk and butter there" I was thinking you were being sarcastic lol;) Like "you can get milk and butter at this grocery store! Amazing!" then I read in the comments that its like home depot and lowes and I quickly reaized you wernt being sarcastic! lol;) That is amazing!:)
    Loved this post! Keep up the good work!;)

    1. lol, thank you! I must say, Pinterest plays a HUGE part in it. ;) Ohh...hmm, maybe start out small! I've learned that attempting to do the big things before even TRYING something smaller, is very challenging. :P well, enough of my ranting! Lol!

      hahaa!! I 100% agree..it's pretty amazing to think that we are watching a show which our grandparents watched as kids..and love. ;) oh gosh, you say that too?! lol

      Yup, a white. :D It was my first time ever.. it was quite interesting to do - all of that leaning back and splattering paint in your face. haahaa!

      haha! I guess I write in my mental voice..you know? Maybe I should invent the sarcastic font so you can tell if I'm being sarcastic or not. LOL It is a pretty amazing store..my mom is there now. ;) And she is buying me some CandiQuick so I can make cookiedough truffles. lol

      oh wow..thank you!!
