Tomorrow is My Birthday

So I'm posed with the usual question of "What do you want?" Honestly, I have no idea. If I want something, I just get it. I've thought and thought about it and can only come up with new slippers. "That's it?" Yeah, that's it.

Until now. After a lot of thought, I think I want new furniture for the sun room. "Well, that's house stuff, that's not personal" Who cares? It's what I want. Could I have it even though it wasn't my birthday? Well....sure, but that's not the point. The furniture I have in here was free, that's right F.R.E.E. and it still amazes me at what people get rid of!

 This is how the sun room is now after I painted the horrible blue floor I complained about here. Isn't it wonderful? I didn't think I would ever get to the color of red I wanted. I didn't want the ready mixed tile or brick red that was out there. I wanted MY red. The red I love so much in my kitchen. The red I love so much in my hutch. MY red. 

I was told over and over "We can't make that" But after calling Valspar, I learned oh yes they can! I so LOVE Valspar paint, so I called them and they called my local Lowes (which I hate) but is the nearest place to me that carries their brand and spoke to the manager and told them how to mix it for me. This was after 3 visits with Lowes telling me NO WAY. I love Valspar even more now!

I love the wicker furniture in there, but I think I could love something else as well. A chair perhaps to curl up in and read a good book. A chair like this maybe?

This chair just happens to be at a sale that starts on my birthday at Urban Mining Homewares. Is it coincidence? I think not.

The next room on the list is the entry hall. I can't decide where to start. Wall color? Floor color?
