Am I challenging myself to the Impossible?

January 18, 2012

A few weeks back one of my favorite blogs Thistlewood Farm was hosting a  2012 Imagine the Impossibilities challenge  - a challenge in which you  tackle some undaunting task.  I thought " well, I have a few of those around here" and quickly raised my hand. Well, it has only taken two weeks to show you the challenge, and I only have two weeks left, so hopefully this all turns out good.
By the way, you should know that I work best under pressure .
So here's my task - My Game Room

This was not the original color of the room (the original color was in the beige family- haystack) . My husband said my hormones were in overdrive when I choose these colors, since this was right before having our first child.  I then decided the blue and green were not for me (and still are not today) and repainted the room...
When will I learn my lesson?
Well , about a year ago I repainted the space from Red to Creamy Mushroom . Funny how things come full circle, even with paint choices ( since I'm going back to the beige family). I seemed to have lost my mo-jo somewhere around last fall to finish the space. The way I look at it, if my kids don't care/notice that the room is several different shades of color and furniture is stacked in the center of the room, why should I!
Next Wednesday I will share more updates on my progress.
Clock is ticking till the room reveal on January 31st!


  1. I've seen that room change several times in the short time I've known you. But I have also seen you complete numerous tasks in a crunch with time to spare! I know you can accomplish this one too! Can't wait to see the results. I know it will be another masterpiece.

    1. why did'nt you slap me when I painted the room red?

  2. Thanks for joining up and sharing your link with me! Can't wait to see what happens in the two week crunch!


  3. Okay....these are my favorite kind of "impossibles!" I can't wait to see the "Creamy Mushroom" you painted it! Great neutral color choice. I will be here with bells on next Wednesday to see the progress!

  4. I've lost my mo jo before with projects in mid stream!
    I've also gone crazy with paint. I did my whole house in gold, then med. blue, (hated that) and then beige and now yellow. In a years time (my poor family.) Needless to say I am tired of painting.
    I can't wait to see your project complete. Its going to look great :)
