THIS OLD HOUSE!

More like "THIS NEW PANELLED WALL" :)

Short Version: We're on This Old House's website or more specifically our Panelled Bedroom Wall is on their site!
AND
We're going to be in their SEPTEMBER ISSUE!!! Hitting shelves soon! :) aaaahhhhhh!

Long Version:
When I was little I wanted to be an arcitect, then I found out I was no good at Math once they started adding the alphabet to it, so no architecture for me. Then when I was in High School I wanted to be a housewife, but I was told that wasn't an option, from just about everyone! So I decided I wanted to be an interior designer because I wanted to be in MAGAZINES!!!

Fastforward to July 2011,

Danielle Blundel sent me an email telling me how much she liked our super cheap paneled bedroom wall, and if we would be open to having it in THIS OLD HOUSE magazine's September issue!
Thank goodness it was an email she sent me because I was a little excited (okay A LOT excited). And had she phoned me she would have got an earful of excited screaming!
I emailed back in all my calmness and said that I would LOVE to be in the September issue. Then it occured to me that our house isn't really an "Old House" but apparently that was just fine, it could be about adding touches to make a NEW home look Older! Yay!!!

So keep an eye out the This Old House's September issue our Master Bedroom Wall is in it!!! We're so Excited! And so are our Moms!! :)

And until then you can see our Panel Project on This Old House's Site! Lee's super excited they used some of his illustrations!
