your shelves look really good. What company makes Gripper, and is it oil or latex? I actually picked up some of the rust-oleum stuff, because i am working on the bedroom furniture that is all wood except, this top inset piece of my boyfriend's dresser, which is laminate. It smells awful and takes forever to dry, but so far so good, although i haven't finished the top coat.
(prime&lime is awesome! i giggled too...
pixie skull, i went to home depot and picked out a bunch of paint chips from the "pure" color pallette, and taped them to the walls to motivate myself to paint...glad you like it.
