So I am still plugging along with the ‘ole office makeover extraordinaire. It has been snowing here and it makes it hard to build things or paint and stain large things inside my tiny house. My kitchen and dining room has been converted into my workshop and it is not really working. I only have naptime and night time to work too.
But I wanted to show you the wall color. I LOVE it. I mixed up the color myself. I started out with a darker color and I didn’t like it. Then I added white to lighten it and it came off as baby blue. So then I went to town and added green, grey, white, more blue, then more green…..you get the idea. I painted the walls 3 times people! And then I started just painting sections. There were probably close to 20 shades that I came up with before I got this one.
It was snowing and the sky was very grey when I took this and even with editing it still isn’t the best picture. But you get the idea :) What do you think I should call it?
Another thing I wanted to share was a little treat I had one day when I was close to having a “this office is never going to be done” melt down. I pulled one of my chocolate Utah Truffles out of the cupboard and melted it in the microwave for 20 seconds. I stirred it until it was all the way melted. Then I dipped strawberries in it! I used it as a fruit dip instead of the traditional “dip and then wait for the chocolate to harden” method. It was soooo much better than the chocolate chips I usually use. I think I have a new addiction. And I feel all grown up when eating it :)
