A Mess

I'm obsessed with wallpaper border.  For two nights in a row I studied every on the net and pieced together all kinds of possibilities on printshop to see what would look good.  

hey... it's not done yet...  don't judge me

My house is a mess.  Paint cans everywhere.  Gracie, annoyed. 

So I took a sample of my newly painted living room into Sherwin Williams and asked the guy if the border I was about to buy would look okay with the color I painted my living room.  He took one look at the sample (the color I painted my living room) and said, "I don't like it."  I said, "Well, it's too late for that now.  It's done.  Now help me find something that will go with it."  And he did. lol.  

Nate Berkus, design expert and star of The Nate Show, 
came to mind.


  1. The guy doesnt know what hes talking about, I like the paint color!!

  2. too funny...did you decide on a border with or without his opinion?

  3. Why not just stencil the border, that way it will match...

  4. Why does Nate Berkus wear his jackets a size too small? I still like him, though! I will be really excited to see the border you got, SO many choices!! And I want to see the hole room when it's finished.

  5. I can't wait to see it all finished!

  6. We like it Bobbi and we cannot wait to see it all done

  7. I like that color, my pool house is painted that same color:) I can't wait to see which border you pick! Don't pay any attention to other's opinions... go with your heart! Have a blessed day, HUGS!

  8. I'm sorry Ms. Bobbi, I REALLY don't means to laugh but dis is just da very same thingy my mum would do.

    Nate does have great hair.
