1. I LOVE to surprise my husband
2. He is entirely too opinionated and loves to play devils advocate which, well, gets on my nerves!
I am working downstairs which I originally blogged about here. It is going to have a couple elements from my inspiration room. Namely a Dash & Albert rug.
This one to be exact. The name of it is Margarita Ticking... two things I just so happen to love! Margaritas and Ticking.... oh yes! Their description of it is "great taste (without the morning after headache)". I hope that name and description aren't the only reasons I bought it :-)
My inspiration to get started originated with this little array of fabrics. I found the floral and it took off from there!
To me it was just happy! I need something to lighten up my brown couch and what better colors to pull from for a family room than green and yellow. So far I've made 10 pillows. I'm painting built-ins from country oak to a crisp white. I THINK I'm going to paint the walls green. Valspars Guacamole to be exact (sticking with the Mexican food theme I guess). A gallery wall is in the works as well. Now, if I could just get rid of all those ugly pesky toys---- errrr, I mean, storage solutions are coming in also.
I will leave you with a final before. The reveal will be at the end of the week but will only be 85% complete. I am not (yet) proficient at hanging light fixtures and I have a couple pieces of furniture that are literally impossible for me to move. Oh, and the fact that I am only working during nap time and at night... not exactly full work days.
Wish me LOTS of luck!!!!!!!! I need more coffee!
