I know, I know . . .

You guys really want to see this one! And here I am making you wait!! What is wrong with me?!

First off, let me say that this woman was a dream to work with!!! I love swatches! I really L-O-V-E swatches! Makes the matching game an easy winner!!!!! {FYI for those who will be wanting a painting in the future!}


She also sent me paint chips! {Another sure way for a match!}


She sent pictures of the room - but it's in PDF - and I can't seem to figure out how to manipulate it to get them here in blogger!

Not only did she send swatches . . . . . and paint chips . . . . . {pictures} . . . . BUT she broke it down with the font she chose! Literally! She picked it out - then "whited-out" the parts she wanted gone!

{the original font - before "the change"}

I would have to say - she sent everything that I needed to make "Sofia".


I was originally going a different direction with this one! I'm soooo glad I changed my mind! I love this one!


And who doesn't love this color combination?


The name matches the ceiling paint and the soft pink "pearls" match the wall color!


Damask - stripes - pinks - black! Love it! And no, I haven't sealed it YET!?

btw - have you seen the comments at the nester!?!? At this very moment 649! Holy Cow! I think I might give away more than one! **wink, wink** - I DID say I was paying it forward, right? I mean, I got to make it a TRUE PAY!

Oh I love that Sofia! Yeah, I commented on the Nester. Let's be honest-I feel like I get lost in the comment world of the Nester. But, for this one, I had to give it a shot!

Love it! Now that I know how much fabric samples and paints squares help your creative juices, I will have mine ready ;-). Believe it or not, I finally bought some fabric so we are ready to move forward. Glad to hear that Hudson is feeling better too.

Very awesome! It's so pretty :)

Wow! It's even prettier than I knew it would be. I absolutely ADORE the damask and at first I thought the "pearls" were little buttons! I love the pearlized paint, it really pops! Love, love, love it!
