And the Oscar Goes To......

OMG!!! I can't believe it. Oh gosh, I don't have anything prepared. Okay (imagine me crying like a baby), first I would like to thank the members of the academy for this award. This is truly an honor and something I have wanted since birth, well maybe before that. To the other actors in this category, you are all so amazing!
 To my loving husband who suggested we make the ticket sign, add a 3- dimensional twist with lights rather then just basic art. I love you babe! 
To my mother who suggested I make a few toss pillows to make it a bit more comfy when she we are watching movies

To me, for being able to finish painting the room ( after I had already finished it), re- purpose the stars and paint them silver, move the other signs in from other places in the house, take down the gold tassel on the curtains and vacuum the carpet before I took the final pictures of the room.


To my gameroom, thanks for letting me take the Coca-Cola sign and put it in here

And lastly to my children who always want popcorn with extra butter during the movie and seem to spill 1/2 of it on the floor, mommy loves you now go to bed!
Now where will I keep Oscar?

Media Room Update- Blogging Without Borders

Well we are down to the wire with two weeks left for the big Media Room reveal here on August 27th. If you missed any of my updates, you can catch up on my progress here.


Since the last update I was able to finish painting the room..... well almost. At the 11th hour, I decided to add a pop of red on the wall as an accent color. Since I painted my base and trim the same color as the walls-Anonymous Grey by Sherwin Williams, I am thinking about adding a red stripe on the top and bottom of the wall. Haven't decided but am open to suggestions.
I was also able to modify the curtains in the room and remove the gold trim. Eventually my husband would like to take the curtain down and create shelving to store all of the electronics and movies.
I am still working on the art work for the walls. I will be finishing a project this week for the room and am adding other pieces from around the house.

 
I am happy with my progress and the changes so far and look forward to sharing the finished room with you. In the meantime, please check out what my other buddies have been up to with their challenge.

Forgive Me...

 I must admit
I am a bit embarrassed.
See, I  have been a slacker. 
I have not lived up to my commitments. 
Today you were suppose to see my Media room updates, but I have No room updates to show you except for how I used my time since the last update here .
So, instead of finishing the paint in the room
I was enjoying a quick get away with my family to a beautiful lake house in Tennessee
And instead of coming up with art work for the walls in the room, inspired from these from Ballard Designs
I was celebrating the birth of my twins who were born 
4 years ago
And instead of modifying the curtains in the room
I was watching my 6 year as a ring bearer in his cousin's wedding in Dallas Texas
And while I should  almost be finished with the space, we enjoyed one last family vacation to the beach, enjoying every second with our kids and with each other
I know...... Slacker. 

PS- And I would do it again, if I could.

PPS- Don't forget to check out what my other pals involved in this challenge are up to this week.
