An eventful weekend

The weekend started off with my husband surprising me with a new 11 inch macbook air, yes, best surprise ever. Also, we made lots of lasagna, a tree fell in our backyard (no worries my sister is pretty fierce with a chainsaw), and I made three trips to Lowes on an account of paint! Pretty eventful, but still fun! !
We painted the guest room/ baby's room, but my original hope was to hang a grasscloth wallpaper, but it was too costly. So next best option was to try a linen effect with paint which turned out horribly! So third best option- painting a color most similar to the grasscloth! Here's my inspiration images:
