Whelp, she's done gone and lost her mind. I think I've said before that my creativity comes in spurts. One week I've suddenly got a thousand ideas and projects that MUST be tended to and then for several weeks I couldn't care less about doing any of that stuff. Nuts. This is one of my crazy weeks. The shower curtain pleased me so much and I've found that I really like the the aqua colors in it. It has sort of sealed the fate of Keely's "new" bedroom. It started with this stack of fabrics/sheets: We decided together that we'd do it in a blue shade.
Her room isn't very big, so I'm a bit scared of going with a dark & bright color on all the walls, maybe a lighter shade on all the walls or just one crazy accent wall? I dunno. We went to Lowe's and got some paint chips.
Decisions. Decisions. She wants birds in her room too. I might try and do a few paintings similar to the decals here.
Her current room is lavender with a bit of springy light green. It was a lovely, peaceful looking nursery. I used to love sitting in there. But as she's grown the room has changed and become a messy hodgepodge of baby stuff/big girl stuff (including our old queen size bed)/ and toys. Now, I can't stand it in there because it's cluttered and doesn't feel good to me at all. It is time to get that room looking and feeling nice again. And then, hopefully, we will want to spend more time in there.
Back to the ikea talk. Last week while thrifting, I found a Poang chair from ikea. I had to get it. It's fun and funky. It is also not really in my normal style. But a chair it is. It'll look good in our study. I might make a new cover for it…
And then the other night while taking a neighborhood walk, some neighbors were cleaning up after their yardsale and had marked this stack of 5 ikea chairs down to $10. Hubby carried them all the way home.
