Chalk Paint Recipes & Tutorial

Chalk Paint

*Update!  Find my 5 Free Chalk Paint Recipes here *
My sometimes coocoo Momma has gone crazy for Chalk Paint!  She's driving forty miles and spending all of my inheritance buying it!  She loves it and can't get enough of it.  I'd love to try it myself but there is no place to buy it around here (unless you know of a place?). I thought I was out of luck and then I found my friend Candy! 

Mr. Mom ~ with Nanny, OF COURSE.

As you read this post I'll be headed to Austin for a girls weekend!

wewwwwwww freakin' hewwwwwww!

It's my first time away from the kids since my daughter was born twenty-two months ago  (22 months ago! incase you weren't paying attention the first time).  This means it'll be the  first time  Mr. coocoo is home alone with all three kids.

As I've mentioned here Mr. coocoo is brilliant.
There are many things (read some here) that make him AWESOME. 
He is a great dad!  I think this weekend could be a little challenging for him
except that he'll have Nanny here to help.

I used to be nervous to leave the kids with Mr. coocoo.  It had nothing to do with him.  I am a control freak like things to be done a certain way and I would constantly be worried (Will Mr. coocoo put them in the right pajamas?  Is he going to feed them enough?  Is he going to let them cry? {when they were little babies}. 

I am for the most part no longer worried about these things.  Mr. coocoo is going to make sure our kids are well-fed, warm, and taken care of.  Even if they go to bed one night and Mr. coocoo forgets to give Pearl her milk and sing her special song everyone is going to make it and that's all I care about it. 

What about you?  When is the last time you were on a girls trip?

Is your husband a Mr. mom?

Can you rely on your husband to take care of the kids so you can have some time to yourself?

Help the coocoo's not go crazy!

We are about to embark on our first major home renovation. We have done numerous small projects but this will be our first complete room gut.  Everything is coming out of our master bathroom and all new stuff is going in! 

 ~ Here's the coocoo Master Bathroom ~

In case you've really been missing 1992! Welcome back. 

You'll feel right at home here.

The Double Vanity and BIG, broken Bathtub.

Hello Shower!!!  Did you notice the gold? 
Bet you're envious of my glass door/shower curtain combo?

What about my lamb/rooster/sheep wallpaper?

Crack.  It happens. 
It's been happening in my bathroom for months.

More of the glass door/shower curtain combo.

Check these Babies Out!!! 

 Give me some of those maroon metal blinds!

The toilet paper holder has been broken for months. 
Why do I continue to keep the broken part there?

Can you say peeling wallpaper EVERYWHERE!

Look at this trim. Classy, right?!?!

Really, there are no words. 

Notice the blue cord (you can't miss it).  What's this cord for? 
We don't know!?!?  Should we cut it?

Again, no words.

We're so coocoo we like to have all finishes represented in our bathroom (brass, bronze, or silver).

I was tempted to clean up but...
 this is what our counter top looks like 90% 98% of the time.

My attempt to make the bathroom pretty.

Now we need your help!

Have you renovated your bathroom?
Or done another major home renovation project before?

What advice do you have so we don't go completely coocoo?
