I've spent all week writing.  Yup....2 guest post and two articles.  My brain is fried and I am sick of talking about myself.  

Before I tell you where I am visiting today here is a little update on the bedroom I am "freshening" up. 

These are the finials on this chinoiserie bed.

Aren't they cool?  Well because of the placement of the bed they had been removed.  I mean thats the best part right...

I changed that.

Then I added a little black and white geometric to some already black and white goodness.

We took off the topper to lighten up and added more black and white with Schumacher Betwixt.

Stay tuned.....

One of the articles I wrote is about exterior paint trends.  I used my house as an example and explained the process of picking the colors.....

You can find it at the Castle Painting blog.

It is hot as the dickens here in Atlanta....

Thanks for all of the love on my mantel!  I have more pictures of a few other changes but we will save that for next week.

My cold is better.....had to go to the "doc in the box" on Monday because I knew I would not be well for my event at ADAC.  What I thought was a cold was actually a bronchial infection and you know those only get worse.

 Even though I have been on antibiotics for 3 1/2 days I still look and feel like I just escaped from Betty Ford because of addiction to OTC cold meds.  

I have a few updates for my project at UMCH.  I have raised about 1500.00 so far [thank you so damn much] and am still emailing people that I have not spoken to in 5 years!  

Lucky me I was able to get the painting donated!  Can you believe it....all of that paneling?  It would have taken me forever and I got the best.  

Miguel Castillo [founder and owner] has been in business in Atlanta for over 12 years with 9000 satisfied customers.  I was lucky enough to meet Laura[ his wife] and Lauren [their marketing director] the other day when they came to the lunch that Mitchell Gold had for us.  They couldn't have been nicer.

Please if you are in need of a good and reputable company, I hope you will give them a call.  I don't have to tell you that painting is all in the prep.  Don't forget to tell them Sherika send you!  Hopefully pictures soon......

I also got a rug donated from Myers Rug Company .  I have used them for 25 number one source for Seagrass....and they ship!

I have the floor plan....the paint color is a Martha Stewart/Sharkey Gray.  Got some new overhead lights.

So now I am shopping for the fun stuff like accent tables, lamps, and PILLOWS!

Oh yeah...did I forget to mention that my room has a bath?

Yep...this room might need some love too.  Right now it is also used for storage....

Scooted up to Scott's today for an hour to get a few shots.  I forgot about the new rule that you can't get in before 1:00.  

So I was sitting in my car waiting and all of the sudden I saw people running past was like the "running of the bulls"....I almost strangled myself on the seatbelt trying to get out of my car so I could join the crowd.

First time I have seen

I did a little guest post on Nantucket Style for Linda at My Crafty Home Life which will be posted tomorrow.  Did you see all the talent from her "Paint a Rug" party? WOWZA.....
