In the Dog House pt. 2


I wish I would've taken pictures while we were painting
but I was so scared it was going to turn out terribly.

My inspiration was Mexican Riviera, Dia De Los Muertos,
I just wanted bright & colorful for this giant piece in my backyard
that was lounging by our pool

I knew what I wanted, but wasn't sure how to get there.
We started with terra cotta base color
then painted bright aqua blue in the middle section

We decided that the baseboards and corner pieces should be blue
but it was pretty horrendous from beginning
to 3/4 of the way painted

I was too scared to admit that it looked like crap
and hubby kept giving me that sideways look
but I kept smiling through it and crossing my fingers
(when he wasn't looking of course)
that it would turn out fine.
and heck,
if not,
there's always more paint!!

I recruited Teen 1 to paint the bigger dog face
the littler one is my attempt

Overall I'm pleased with their Siesta Siesta spot!

WOW! I think you did a great job, those are some lucky dogs with such a great pad!

Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
