Ever since I started creating boards on Pintrest, I have almost been obsessed with finding ideas on how to better decorate our humble abode. As you can imagine there are a lot of ideas out there. And I have seriously thought about attempting every idea I see. Old door for a headboard? I’m trying to convince Adam. Paint a sideboard a crazy color? Hello Ace hardware!
Ok, ok. I have since calmed myself down. A bit. But I still stay up way late even when I know I have breakfast duty in the morning. Whoops. You would think at 26 years of age I would have better self control. Nope. My poor husband. He puts up with so much. 🙂
Something I haven’t calmed down about is the decor in the living room. When we first moved in I painted the walls a beautiful shade of light yellow. Sherwin Williams Tea Light to be exact. My mother-in-law thought I should decorate with John Deere tractors. Instead I decorated with red; I have now learned the errors of my ways. I’m still keeping the yellow walls (with as much space as there is and how much the paint cost), but I have now opted for more soothing coordinated colors. Light blue, olive green, and yellow have proven to be me in a better mood when I get home from a hard day of school.
Currently, on our east wall (in the dining room part of the big room) I have fairly bulky black frames. When I hung them up 3 1/2 years ago I thought they looked really nice. I’m just going to blame it on newly wed bliss. Now when I look at them, all I can think of is “yuck”. So…I have a new plan. A collage complete with mirrors and new pictures. At this point in the project I haven’t been able to collect of the pieces, but here are a few pieces:
As you can tell, the mirror is reflecting our ugly, hideous, awful ceiling fan. It was in the house when we bought it and hasn’t been a high priority. Overall, I’m really excited about the new decor. I’m now on the lookout when I go to Etc. Shop or Goodwill for funky, fresh decor. Because that’s what I’m all about; funky, fresh.
Shake it up!
