Do you get this question: “When are you going to be DONE?”
As in “done decorating?”
Uhh, excuse me? I’m thinking that my coffin will need updates from time to time, and even though heaven is perfect, a little tweaking of the accessories never hurt anyone.
Let’s start with my family room. I thought it was done. My husband
thought hoped it was done. Even the kids thought it was done.
But it just didn’t sit right with ME. The red, taupe and black color scheme was a little cold. It didn’t say “COME ON IN AND MAKE YOURSELF COMFORTABLE”, it said “BRING A BLANKET, BECAUSE I’M A LITTLE CHILLY.”
The unrest had been brewing, but I decided to make some changes when I met this pillow at Kohl’s.
Anyway, this pillow starting calling to me. AND I had a 30% off coupon. I loved the casual, almost cottagey look, and the red with shades of brown. Hmmm…brown is warmer than black, I thought.
Brown is the color of dirt. PERFECT for a family of six and a slobbery boxer that thinks he’s the 5th child.
So…you know where this is going, don’t you?
I decided to change up the entire room, adding brown accents and easing up on the black.
So, now these are moving to the dining room.
I bought more drop cloths and THIS beautiful brown fabric to make pillows and drapes.
It’s Premier Prints from Fabric.com. Love their selection and their prices. (nope, they didn’t pay me to say that)
I’m planning to sew this weekend, so stay tuned!
