Time to W.O.W. Again!

It's that time again! Ready to W.O.W. with me? I hope so!

Do you have something you've wanted to get done but keep procrastinating? Join me this week and let us cheer you on. (Browse the past W.O.W. posts to get an idea of what it's all about, and then come back here and join in the fun)

Last month, Heidi did a great job with scrapbooking and salsa making and won the coffee prize.

(Which probably hasn't shown up in her mailbox yet. Sorry, Heidi. Thanks for being patient with me! Should be there soon.)

Maybe you will be the winner this time!

Here's what I'm up to this week:

I'm back in Prince Charming's room this week. I've mentioned that I've been reading Nester's "31 Days to a Better Dressed Nest" and on Day 5, she told us all to "paint something."

So within one week that's exactly what I'm going to do. : )

At first, I thought about my coffee table, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough for that quite yet. I've been itching to "create" something lately, so being told to paint something seemed like the perfect opportunity.

During a past W.O.W. Challenge, I finished Prince Charming's bedroom. But it actually isn't all the way done.

This is the view over his dresser:

A Bare Wall. : )
This week, I'm going to get creative and something will be painted and above that dresser. I think it will involve a canvas, a paintbrush, and some paint. Since I don't even know what it is going to be yet, you'll have to come back next Wednesday for the big reveal.

I'd also like to get this off the floor and hung up on the wall:

And I picked up this picture frame during one of my treasure hunting sprees, but want to liven it up a little, so I also plan to paint the outside edge red:

Look at all the painting I'm doing! : )

What would you like to accomplish in just one week's time? Let's us know in the comments section or link up to your blog and we'll all cheer each other on throughout the week. Next Wednesday, I'll post my results and you can tell us how you did. One person will win a Starbucks card for you to buy a drink on me.

Have fun and don't forget the cheering each other on part! : )

Go Becky Go! If your canvass doesn't work out maybe you could stencil something basebally. I Love that picture of Uncle Roy!!

Heidi said...

I can't wait to see your finished project, especially that canvas! You are a very creative woman and I love seeing what you come up with!

I had a lot of projects to choose from, but at this point and time, I thought this particular one fit!

His room is going to be so cute! Have fun with all that painting! :)

Emma said...

I love that picture of Papa. I was always a little bummed that I didn't get one of those. I'll have to get a copy from ya. Can't wait to see what it looks like in that red frame!! I figured you came by to cheer me on, I better come by to cheer you on too:)
