This week’s themes: Planning, Loving, Reading, Wishing, Feeling
So I painted my living room this weekend and I totally don’t love it. I’m planning to jazz it up with some new curtains and some art. I already custom-made something with leftover samples. I have one wall that looks dark and sad and I may just take a paintbrush to it and see what I come up with. The rest of the room doesn’t look like an adult lives there, why should my walls be super serious?
Aside from the fact that I feel like I’m living in an Eiffel 65 song, I really do like what I created as art. I used to have records hung on the wall, but I was worried about the paint peeling off it I put them back, so I’ll find another place for them.
All the Better Homes and Gardens. Ever since I was a kid, I loved magazines like that. I used to pour over them at my grandma’s house and dream about the lovely, airy, old-but-packed-with-charm house that I’d live in some day with my 500 dogs.
Well it’s April 3 and Mother Nature decided she didn’t like that we were feeling happy and warm and she dumped some snow on us. And I’m wishing for the warm weather to come back!
I’m feeling all the frustration about my living room. I affectionately referred to it before as “Mexican Restaurant Yellow” but it was warm and inviting. And all of the colors in my house are warm tones. I have no idea why I thought I could dump a fish tank room into it and it would magically work.
