I'm in Love with a Can of Spray Paint

Hey Yall! Frannycakes is tired. She has been busy trying to get everything together for Julianne's apartment. She has been trying to make everything be perfect for Julianne's apartment. She seems to have a different idea of what will be perfect from Julianne. I need an apartment to decorate just like I want it. Cause I have some fabulous ideas. Me and my best friend, spray paint, have been having a great time together. I had found a Pennsylvania House night stand at the Goodwill. I painted it a creamy white. And it looks great! I also painted my grandmother's chest of drawers the same white. I changed the knobs to clear glass ones. Very, very pretty if I must say so myself. Today, Julianne and I went to the Goodwill in Auburn and found a big wicker chest and a small wicker shelf for the bathroom. I sprayed the wicker chest with a pink spray paint. The wicker shelf was painted a sea blue. They both turned out really nice too. We painted 3 of my shutters that I bought several months ago the creamy white. These will be put together and serve as Julianne's new headboard. So the bedroom is coming together. Not in the same color scheme or fabric that I have in mind, but is will be very pretty.

We are going to Orono tomorrow so I can finish painting. I am really looking forward to that. Yeah.....

After all this painting and decorating and moving, I am going to crash. Then I am going to put my house back together. And after that? I am going to paint and redecorate Julianne's room just the way I want to!

Tootles!
