Point + Shoot : House Rules

They forgot the - AND DON"T MESS WITH MUM.
On the weekend I fell in love with this bus scroll print (a style that I'm well aware is overused and a bit corny at the moment - meh) and Hubby bought it for me.

By 'bought' - I mean that he was standing right there when I decided I wanted it and didn't stop me from buying it.

Potayto. Potahto.

Once we got it home, the print practically begged to be placed in our entryway.

By 'practically begged - I mean that I walked around the house holding it against every wall and surface until one felt right.

Once in place, it became obvious to us that the existing (and despised anyway) blue wall just had to go.

By 'obvious to us' - I mean Hubby could literally see what I was thinking with my squinting eyes and agreed to repaint the wall before I had to grovel.

When buying the paint for the wall, I realised that new stones in the hideous brick thing below it would set the colours off nicely.

By 'I realised' - I mean that I got all the way to the car with the paint before bolting back into Bunnings and heading for the garden section, while Hubby and Magoo just took deep breaths and let me unravel at my leisure.

So, by the end of the weekend - hey presto.
A totally unplanned and not entirely necessary project complete - while 'the list' remains largely unchecked.

By 'hey presto' - I mean my back is now aching and my Hubby is slightly fed up with me.

Plus, now that I look at the pics - maybe the blue wall wasn't that bad??!!
Ain't pregnancy grand?
The rule says SMILE, people.

How was your weekend? Irritate your family much?

You're a classic Shar! Your 'project' had pregnancy brain written all over it... in a good way of course.
LOVE the sign, I can totally see how you could not go home without it. Enjoy the fruits of your (and hubby's) labour now xoxo

Irritate my family? Of course I did! Love those words on the print, something to remember xo

Kate Sins said...

That looks fabulous and yes, you are pregnant so it's your prerogative to do and say what you please.

I always irritate my family.

Shar I love it! I've been eyeing one of these off for ages, haven't got to purchasing just yet! And I can't use baby brain as an excuse!

Hay looks great!! I too often start a simple buyor project that kind of gets outta hand and leads to another thing. I do like this print, and your right very overused but with good reason!! X
