Real Life & a Wonderful Sweet Surprise!

Any of you fellow DIYers out there will understand why I typically think that surprises are overrated!  You know what I mean, for us DIYers, surprises usually mean more work and more money.  Can I get an amen?  I can feel your heads nodding and lots of smiles!

But, some surprises are quite sweet!  Such as the surprise that Cassity of Remodelaholic gave me this morning!  She has featured the bedroom makeover on her site!  Have you been to this amazing site?  If not, you are one of the few in the blogasphere that hasn't!  Thank you Cassity for a wonderful surprise!

No doubt about it, the bedroom makeover has been a hit!  So, I have planned to post about many more room makeovers!

In fact, I have makeover for you right now.....real life (aka hubby and Zeek) making over a room!  Everything is always pretty when we photograph it for our posts.....but let's face it....that's not the way life really is.  Move your cursor over the picture and take in real life!

I was nodding and clapping and saying, "uh huh" in agreement with you! LOL

Real life... that's where the cat helps in the diy project (mainly in the painting department) and thinks that his fur coat is the equivalent to fun and funky floor covering...

yeah - LOLOL

I love LOVE the bedroom makeover!!!
