The finale

After three coats of red paint, this is the final product. Don't you love it?! We do. It is such an easy fix for the dingy paneling. I still have to paint the opposite wall in the kitchen, and I am going to paint the cabinets and trim a bright, glossy white. Oh, and yes, that is a towel on our ceiling. It is covering a hole that has been there since Oct., I think, when our friendly neighborhood mouse decided to chew threw a rubber connector and cause a leak.

I can hardly wait for school to be out! I have three boys that are making me crazy (though the margarita on the rocks helped me deal), and a group of snobby girls that are making each other crazy. I am so glad I am not in middle school anymore. It's easy to forget how hard it is at that age. They have to make so many decisions about friendships ... I don't look back at my middle school years as good ones, for sure, but I did learn much about myself.

Ooohh!! It's gorgeous! :) I LOVE IT! :) I hope you are able to find patience with your students. I would want to string them up by their ears...that's why I didn't go into education ;)
