Best Birthday Gift

New bedroom paint

LP and I are home from Tulsa. I came home to the best birthday gift I could have imagined, a freshly painted bedroom. LP Dad and Uncle Dave worked tirelessly the 10 days that LP and I were gone to prep and paint the walls, trim, and fireplace. LP Dad had stripped the wallpaper about 5 months ago and I chose the paint colors and bought the paint, but could never find the time to actually get anything done,

It feels like a completely different room. I wasn't sure if the French Roast Brown would be too dark, but it doesn't seem dark or smaller, just warm and comfortable. The furniture stands out against the darker color and the fireplace has become the focal point of the room. I love it, and them for doing it for me.

Holy cow...That is incredible. Can we borrow Uncle Dave and Daddy for a few weeks in TULSA?

I love the way your bedroom came out. The darker color really showcases your furniture and the rug is perfect.

But the best part of the project is your fabulous husband and your spectacular Dave.

How lucky you are :-)
Love, Mom
