Goal Numero Uno
I think my first goal is to get the girls/guest bathroom done. I've done absolutely nothing with that bathroom, besides hang up a shower curtain. It's pretty blah, and you'll usually find water and toothpaste all over the mirror no matter how often I clean it (I have no idea how a 5 and 7 year old can get water spots all the way to the top of the mirror.) I admit, I rarely go in there, so it fell off my home decorating radar.
|My one futile attempt at decorating this bathroom|
|Isn't it great how children magically appear in pics when you're taking them?|
Goal Number 2
Next up is my bedroom.
|I LOVE these mirrors, but hubby doesn't care for them.|
|Yay for a mom who was a seamstress for 20+ years, she made all the drapes in our house.|
I love our comforter now, but we've had it for the past 3 years, and I'm ready for something new. I showed hubby the upholstered headboard with nailhead trim on Centsational Girl and he loved it too, so that's on our To-Do list. My mom made a headboard just like it a number of years ago, just without the nailhead trim. Our bedroom is a good size (13x17 with 12 foot ceilings) so I'm thinking a oversized headboard, to take up some room on the wall. And lastly, I want a light gray paint on the wall, instead of the normal neutral cream color. I have a hard time knowing what to do with the walls, since they are soooooo tall.
Goal Number Three
I hesitate to post these next pictures, since I fought every urge I had to stage this area before taking the pic. But, if you are to understand why an area irritates me so much, you might as well see it in all of it's glory.
So, this area is called the "planning area". This area connects the kitchen (where I'm standing) and hubby's office. The door to the right in the second pic is the laundry room door. In the first picture, the little arched window you see faces the entryway. This area usually catches anything that we need a flat surface to put it on. And you'll usually find dog food all over the floor (why a dog needs to pull out every stinkin' piece of food and place it on the floor is beyond me). The girls backpacks, Awana bags and vests, art supplies and random
So my plans for the planning area? I want to paint the walls a light tan color, like the color in my living room. And I want to do beadboard and a chair rail, with hooks for the girls bags. And enforce the "if you get it out, put it away" rule. And have a talk with the dog about not being a weirdo when he eats his food. Think he'll listen?
