AT Style Cure #12: Weekend Homework

​​One of my favorite blogs is Apartment Therapy. For the month of November they’re doing a Style Cure room makeover challenge to help you prepare for the holidays. I’m going to makeover our bedroom – while it’s not really a room that will get a lot of visibility from guests I think having a “safe” place to come back to for family overload recovery will be very beneficial. :)

#12: Shop and Gather Your Supplies.

Easy peasy, rice and cheesey. 8D

I tried to type up a list but there wasn’t much we needed to buy…we just need to do. I did go ahead and pick up some more pool green paint, as opposed to that emerald I was bragging about so much. >.< Fun little experience at Lowe’s, though… I requested a quart of pool green in satin. They gave me a gallon. I said “Oh, wait – I only need a quart.” He said they were out of quart containers so I got a gallon for the cost of a quart. We’re up to our necks in paint, you guys. And then – AND THEN – I got a rebate for buying a gallon of paint. I. Just. Can’t. Even. Once I get that rebate in, I’ll have only paid $5 for a gallon of paint. Party.

I also picked up a few stir sticks, because dear darling Sputnik chewed up the one we got when we bought our emerald paint. Little turd. And I got one of those paint can opener things. #SoFancy Oh, and disposable paint tray thingies. I only spent $22 and I got a $10 rebate out of it!! Hopefully we have everything we need at this point. Lowe’s really doesn’t need any more of my money.
