Teal Zeal and Polka Dots!
Okay Okay, it's not stampin' but this is what I've been doing the last 2 days, so I had to share!
Morgan starts high school in just about 2 weeks and I promised her a *new* room this summer. Her room redo began the same way as Brett's did a few weeks back with a Clean Sweep. All of her earthly possessions, with the exception of her bed, dresser, and desk, are in the garage. Sorting still remains to be done, but 50% of it will go. We found this comforter set at Target and she knew it was what she wanted in her room. From there the paint was selected. We compromised - she wanted the dark teal circles, I wanted the lightest sky color, so we picked out Behr Teal Zeal, the middle hue on the set. The *bellies* still need to be added to her room, shelves, new lighting, the all important full length mirror, etc. But once it is all finished, she'll have a room to take her through the next 4 years.
Funny story about the paint selection. We went to Home Depot with the pillow sham to have the tech do a color match. Well, one tech there with a very time consuming customer makes for a fidgety teen and clock watching mom. So I moosied over to the Behr samples and picked what I thought would be a good match. Then I notice Behr has a customer color matching machine right out where customers can use it - how cool is that! You simply slide your item (fabric, paper, rug, etc.) into the machine, let the electronic eye read it three times, and it tells you what the Behr match is.
My hand selected Behr sample, Teal Zeal, was the same as the one the computer popped up. Morgan looks at me and says "You're good, Mom!"
Love when we can shine, even for a minute, in our teens eye!
