Pink & Yellow

My family room has been a room that has been slowly decorated because I started to get off track of how I was wanting it to look. I figured the best way to get going again was start with some inspiration…


So sorry that I can’t remember where I found this image, one of my favorite inspiration photos…

Love the chairs...



Other favorite inspiration photo, would love to have an end table version of the coffee table...

Please Come In…

IF I ever paint my house, I will need a new color on the front door.


The choices are limitless…

 



































































I am partial to the yellow door, BUT this is to die for…

Seriously?!? A pink door…could anything be better!!

Mellow Yellow…

I’m slooooowly working on the tv console.  The handles have been Rub n’ Buff (ed) gold and I have primed the drawers.  I really want to paint the inside something fun but worry it will end up looking like poo. 

After seeing this, I’m doing yellow…

So pretty…

Then…POW!!

Wing a Ding Ding....

I do have a bit of a chair obsession. I love them and could have 100 in my house but I don’t want to be known as the crazy lady with a house full of chairs.


My sister in law is moving to Texas and has two chairs that I have drooled over as soon as I saw them. Since she’s not sure what her house will be like down there we are going to swap chairs



She gets…079



I get…Unnamed (2)



Unnamed



And while looking through 1st Dibs I saw these, very similar to the above style….

Sadly it will cost me a little since they’ll have to be reupholstered, but I love how massive they are. I hope my family room can support the size…

Come and Gone…

This week is at an end and unfortunately I did not 100% complete my projects I wanted to.  Instead I spent my time removing wallpaper at my mom’s house…miles and miles of wallpaper!!  I still have one wall and the dressing area to do… the 80’s, they loved their wallpaper.

My pieces are off to a good start…I don’t want to spoil the big reveal but here’s a teensy sneak peek…

we needed to call in reinforcements (aka my brother) to figure out how to hinge the drawers turned doors…there will be no tutorial on how we do it since we have been fumbling through the whole process and figuring it out as we go along…

I hope it gets done quick because everything that was in the old cabinet (and then some) is now living on my dining room table…

Ivy and Piper

This issue of Ivy and Piper could very well be my absolute favorite. I haven't gotten to the actually articles yet, but the pictures are FABULOUS!!

























Did that wet your whistle??

Radio Silence

Sorry for my absence. “Where has the week gone!!” words uttered by my 12 year old…I agree!  The hubby had a crazy ass brilliant idea yesterday that we should piggy back on the neighboring subdivisions garage sale on Friday!   Yeah…a garage sale…just what I want to pile on top of everything else.

I have been busy working on a few projects that hopefully will be finished by next week…

Repainted vanity…just need to finish one thing…

Bench for my mom's guest room redone…

And a new piece I acquired over the weekend for $25, with two mirrors…We’re rigging it to function as a TV console…
