My Humble Blue Living Room

Hi girlies! See the wall with the quilt? That's the wall that I worked on during my glorious Spring break. Bobby put the last coat on for me. Painting over paneling is not the lickety split job of painting over dry wall or some other surface- especially if you're a woman with defective wrist bones!! The other window wall is what I painted last year. Nothing slow about me! Ha!
You can see that there is still brown paneling on the other wall but that didn't stop our house from selling! I have pretty sheets over the love seat and chair which have seen much better days! I love the slip cover look better anyway. ☺
This is a tiny room and I never liked going in here before. It was so dark and boxy. Even with 2 walls left in the brown paneling, I like it much better now. Too bad we're not staying! (NOT!)
Under Contract:
We counter offered yesterday and he countered back to us and we are finally done! If all goes smoothly we will close on May 14th! HELP! ☺

OMG Holly I am screaming for you...
Congratulations sweetie. I knew it. I told you God has a plan for all of us, and if it was meant for you to move, that it would sell. Oh sweetie I am so thrilled for you. Just absolutely thrilled. I hope you are walking away with enough of a profit to put down on a house where you are going to be with the rest of the family. Your kids and grands will be so thrilled.

Oh sweetie. How wonderful this is. Thank you so much for sharing.

I love the quilt on the wall and the paneling is so beautiful painted white. It just looks gorgeous. Love quilts.

I'll be praying for the closing to go quickly and painlessly sweetie.

I am off to Maryland in the morning. Will be gone for 8 days to see Marydon @ Blushing Rose. I can't wait.

Have a beautiful weekend and I will see ya when I get back. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry
