What Color Did We Choose?

The painting is almost done.  I're asking what happened to having it done by Tuesday?  Well, it didn't and we're okay with that.

(Okay, we're not really okay with that because I need to get this finished while Baby Bee is gone to Winter Camp for the weekend and I have to finish the plans for her Nancy Drew birthday party for next Saturday, but we're going to pretend that we didn't bite off more than we can chew and we're going to pretend that we can get it all done and then we're going to go to make several lattes to get us through.)

What color did we choose?

drum roll......... 
(I feel like one of those cheesy reveals they have on HGTV sometimes)

We chose Aqua Spray!




Wake me up in the middle of the night......

Aqua Spray!

Lowe's can offer you some great deals on paint or painting supplies. Take a look at them here!

I love it!  I just hope Baby Bee does too.

We needed to paint the ceiling too - I've used this color for all our ceiling now - Popped Corn - it's warm without being beige or yellow but it's cool enough to work with blues and greens.

Well I won't be able to finish all the projects in her room for her birthday, but we'll get it put back together and set it up with the new linens (as much as we can) for her big day.  Spring Break is in about 4 weeks and I think I can get it finished then.  

In the mean time, here's another reason why I can't get her room done.

I had to take photos of some fun things I'm putting up on etsy in the near future.....
I admit - I kept them for awhile, but ultimately decided someone else would love them more.

Couldn't snatch this Pyrex child's plate up fast enough!

Time to let go of another one of my pretties.  She's served her time bravely and honorably here at Sweet Bee Cottage, but it is time for her to venture out.

and I had to rearrange my espresso bar.  
Priorities people!  

Thanks for buzzin' in!

  1. The paint color you chose is very refreshing!!

  2. i LOVe THE fresh and cool and soothing. She will love it.... I must have the glasses and the pyrex childs plate, since I will have a new grandbaby in 4 weeks. Post them soon. How is baby bees arm? blessings to you.

  3. I have been looking for glasses like those for forever!

  4. NOOOOOOOOOO! The glasses are gone.

  5. I love the color you chose! She is going to love it :)

  6. I think it's the perfect color for BabyBee. I know it will look even better once you get her new bedding in her room!

  7. Oh I am always so behind on things around here it seems. We painted a little today too.

  8. Love this color! I can't wait to see pics with all the furniture back in and fixed up. Oh do amaze me! I don't know how you do all of this and teach! I work partime and well...I have had a painting job waiting for me for WAY too long! You go girl!

  9. Oh my...that color is wonderful! It really brightens up that room! I have a very similar color in my craft room....never get tired of it! Hope you get everything to your liking...:) I remember those days....

  10. Love the blue! With some orange and lime green accents too, maybe, perhaps? Fun! Fun! What a lucky gal! I hope you post her reaction when she comes home and a Nancy Drew party too?! Love it!! ;)Alyssa of Boston Bee

  13. I absolutely love that color. Good job!!!

  14. The color is perfect! Some of the turqoise/aqua shades have too much green in them, but this has just the right balance. I think Baby Bee will love it! I hope she's having fun at camp, in spite of her broken wing. :~)

    Well maybe with on good wing..I hope Baby Bee's wing is feeling better poor thing..
    Big hugs for Baby Bee and the Sweet Bee Mama..

  18. I LOVE the aqua... it's been my new favorite color for a bit now... and of course the espresso bar takes precedence!

    Can't wait to see the room when it's finished :)


  19. Hello My dear Sweet Bee !
    I come from a childhood of white, my mother was swedish and it was beautiful and I still love the look although my home is a mixture. The auqa color happens to be a shade of clothing I love to wear it's just perks you up! I love the look in your daughters room to me it's serene. Can't wait to see the color you chose for her ceiling.


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
