Ryan and I painted the living room all weekend long. We started super early on Saturday morning, and we were still painting window frames after the Oscars had started on Sunday night (painting window frames is a big fat pain in the butt, fyi.) But it's finished! And it's really, really white! And I liiiiike it.
But now it's kinda making me want to get rid of everything we own in the room and start fresh. No, not really everything, but some of it. We have a lot of old garage sale finds and hand-me-down furniture that's making the room feel stuffy.
I had a dream the other night-- we were on a walk through the park near our house, and suddenly there were these huge elk and reindeer skeletons scattered everywhere on the grass. HUGE. Like, dinosaur bones huge. And all I could think was, Quick, let's carry all these antlers home before someone else finds them and decorates their house with them first! Isn't that stupid? I don't even know if I want to decorate this house with giant elk antlers, but that's how much I'm thinking about decorating lately. And I know I'm thinking about it TOO MUCH, but then again, I spend most of my time in these rooms. I might as well make them pretty.
Right now I'm thinking wicker baskets, lots of fresh flowers, some good art on the walls, and the perfect striped rug. Bare wood, lace curtains, green plants and a really big mirror for Ralph to leave sloppy kisses on when he's old enough.
Tomorrow I'll probably be thinking something entirely different. But until I figure it out, you shall find me glued to pinterest.
