You’re the One that I Want

I’ve been humming a little ditty ever since I saw this little youtube video recently.

As a total aside ~I admire Olivia and John’s pluck with this song…but the part I really love is right around the 2 minute mark where they both go dreadfully out of tune!!;)

“You’re the one that I want…

doo, doo, doo”

Since it’s February, it seems appropriate.

But, while the world is talking red hearts and Valentine candies, we’re just going to skip those aisles and instead talk about the one thing that I want when it comes to home decor and DIY projects.

Imagine this scenario:  The task is to transform a dull, drab, sad cottage full of old, dilapidated things.  The challenge is to do it with only 2 items. 

What would you choose?

Have your answer?  (Good! Let me know what it is in the comments below…)

I would choose paint and a paintbrush! (An unlimited supply would be nice.  Could we arrange that??)

cottage paint

With those two humble items, so much can be done!

So…while I admittedly love bouquets of flowers, chocolates, and big ol’ kisses… this month is going to be all about paint around here!  While I’m actually working on some new paint projects to blog about, I might just bring out some previous paint projects we’ve done.  (There’ve been a plethora over the years!)

So, get those brushes ready and crack open the paint cans.

It’s a paint party!!

What’s the first project you’re going to tackle?
