Paint and Floors

Ok SO first things first -- I didn't sleep well last night. Then as I was getting ready for work this morning, it sounded like someone was trying to break in through the walls of the house...turns out it was just the sonic boom of the shuttle re-entering the atmosphere for the last time.
THEN I went to Chick-fil-a this morning.  I felt like I needed a little pick-me-up and since I am not a coffee drinker, cokes are my go-to. I politely ordered a Dr. Pepper and drove away. As I was making my way to work, I took a big swig of Dr. Pepper....only it was SWEET TEA!!!! =( Now anyone who knows me or pays attention KNOWS that I LOATHE sweet tea! UGH! It is so disgusting to me!! I about spit it out all over my passenger seat but I begrudgingly swallowed it and 'flipped a B' haha. AS SOON as I walked into Chick-fil-a, they said:

"was your drink wrong?"
(why did you hand it to me if you were certain is was WRONG?! )
"we're very sorry!"
"It's Ok, it happens" (To me all the time).
UGH!!! Seriously -- I don't know why I have so many issues haha!

I FOUND MY CAMERA!!!! WOOO!! Maybe I didn't tell you BUT I misplaced my camera again after Saturday...turns out it was underneath a sweater in the front seat of my car haha =) So after turning our house upside down and frantically searching for it, I have been driving around with it right next to me - literally- all week. =) Wow sometimes I really am blonde! ha!!!

Anyways - -the reason it is so exciting that I found my camera is that I can share pictures of our paint colors and flooring choices, but not tile choices as we haven't picked that out yet. So here we go!

For the Master Bedroom:
Paint: Valspar - City Storm
Floor: Stormy Oak

For most of the house we are going with the following flooring and paint color
Paint: Valspar - Siene (The color !)
Floor: Brazilian Tigerwood
This paint and flooring will go through the most of the house. The dining room, front room, living room, hallway and all the additional bedrooms. The paint color is more brown than it appears in the picture -- I can't wait to paint a wall with it -- will be in the main part of the house, spare bedroom and craft room. I think the lighter color next to the main color will be the color of the spare bathroom.

For the Spare Bedroom:
Paint: Valspar - Siene
Flooring - American Cherry
We are going with a different floor color for the spare bedroom because the furniture in this room is a dark cherry instead of the light cherry pictured for the flooring. We feel this light flooring will create a very nice contrast. I am going to take the flooring sample and paint color to my parent's where the furniture is being stored to make sure it all looks good together.

For the 'man-cave'/office, I had J pick that color. We are going to store his fishing stuff in it and frame and hang some of his big fish catches
Paint: Valspar - Exotic Sea (middle)
Flooring -- Brazilian Tigerwood

For the craft room I am painting 3 of the walls with the Siene and painting one wall the Exotic sea.

We haven't picked out the tile for the kitchen, entry-way, bathrooms and laundry room.  We want to make sure it won't clash with the cabinets in the kitchen. We have picked out most of our lighting, but I will share that with you in a different post on a different day =)

I am very excited about all of this! The Husband is pretty excited when he isn't exhausted =/ I spoke with my friend who is a real estate agent and she told me to give my agent AT LEAST another week to obtain information regarding our contract before I start pestering her.  In reality, she will have longer than that because This time next week I will be visiting with family and getting ready for my sissy's wedding! Say a little prayer that we receive a closing date soon. I am starting to feel a little crazy in this funky limbo we are in, haha!

Happy Almost Friday!!!

That is so exciting. I think it would be so much fun to buy a house and go pick out colors and flooring...I'm a renter right now...

Wow, it's crazy it's taking so long! After the tornado hit here a friends grandparents toured a house on Thursday, made an offer Friday, and closed on like the following Monday or Tuesday. Now that was pretty wild too!

But good luck and hopefully you don't have to wait to much longer!

Love the choices! Can't wait to see how it all turns out! :)

I love the colors you have chosen. I especially love the cherry flooring. Wood flooring always add extra value to a house. They are easy to clean and can keep the good look for many-many years. I like the way you decorate.
