Ever since I st…

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:

ImageAs 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!
