About two years ago I woke-up one day and my sense of style had totally changed! Okay, maybe it wasn't that sudden or drastic, but that's how it felt. I had to hide it from hubby for a while, because I had already been spending alot of time and money on the house and I didn't want to go to him and say, "Remember that room that I just finished last month? Well, now I hate it."
My first room that just had to be changed was the formal living. We weren't using it and I felt that we were paying for square footage that was totally being wasted. So, I just slowly got rid of everything that bugged me.
Now, I'm totally happy and I sit on the stairs across from it and just soak it in. It's exactly what I wanted, eclectic and fresh.
After. This is the view from the front door. I slipcovered two wingbacks that I got at a garage sale. The ottoman is made from the fabric as the slipcovers. I didn't
make it though. I'm too chicken. Maybe next time, now that I have one to copy...
This is the view from the stairs. Sigh. I heart pink.
The glass desk was a find on craigslist. A steal at $70. Which was much better than the William Sonoma that was breaking my heart at $1200.
An orchid. Just cause I like it. And I'm very proud that I've kept it alive for a few months.
I've actually done alot around the house recently. Maybe I'll get around to posting about it all. Now I'm off to do science projects!
Hmmm, I'm such a secretive and complex person that profiles like this are always taxing to write. ; ) I'm a SAHM from TX who loves her three little girls and her husband. I also have fab friends who make staying-at-home a blast! I love to read, watch TV, sew, go to the movies, go on dates with hubby, organize my house and music.
