Okay. So maybe it’s not the project you were expecting, but it IS something I/we got done around here. We built this house 5 years ago, and looking back now, I was probably a little conservative in the living room. Okay…a LOT conservative. I kept thinking, “This is the room we’re going to be in night and day.” I didn’t want anything too bold and annoying. Instead, I came up with neutral and boring…
In time, it got to me. I needed something more. I needed warmth.
So….with the help of our nanny who spilled coffee–not once, but twice–in the same spot, and our stupid dog, I hate him so much! dog who, well, he’s a dog…we got new carpeting. Of course, that meant we had to get new walls to go with the carpeting. Note: I did the strike through thingy!! Thank you for your help ladies! You’re waaaay smarther than I am!
Then, it finally happened. Curtains. If you’re still reading this, it’s a pretty funny story. My mom and I were shopping in TJMaxx one day, and I found these curtain panels (two of them!) for $15.00!!!! My mom walked over and immediately wanted them. We tugged on the package, she yanked at my hair, I called her a bad name, and I WON! Never come between me and a cheap purchase–not even if you’re my mom!
I may have looked into a neutral pattern in the curtains, but when are you going to find them (95 inches long, mind you) for $15.00? Soooo, as my mom hung her head in defeat, we scooted on over to Hobby Lobby and bought this funky trim to hot glue on them!
She loves it, I love it, my husband hates it! You know what that means, don’t you? I love it even more! Oh, I care what he has to say and all, but this girl doesn’t need his approval to know if I like something. It just needed a little “oomph”, and the trim gives it that.
So, without further adieu……………………
Granted, it’s the spookified version of my living room, but I imagine you get the point. You’ve gotta know this isn’t staged when you see the blue painter’s tape that my stupid dog, why didn’t he just choke on the tape! dog ate while I was gone.
My house is in a constant state of change, so there’s a couple of “tweaks” I will do. Until then, this is where I watch The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, and General Hospital. That’s right…I said General Hospital.
