I have been working on numerous (many, many, many) home dec/DIY projects lately.
Have I already mentioned that my daughter’s bedroom is becoming very, very beachy? We have removed the old toddler-inspired tree decals from the walls and applied wallpaper to one corner, revamped the entire color scheme of the room, thrown out the flowers and brought in the seashells, etc. We still need to paint the remaining walls the color of “aquatic mist” and finish putting together her full-size bed, etc. But… moving right along!
Simultaneously, I am turning our guest room into a sunny, yet cozy coastal getaway for whomever may venture into town and want to stay a spell. I hope to have it completed before the summer is over. It will be cleverly appointed with luxurious accoutrements for guests who wish to enjoy such comfortable accommodations with us.
Also simultaneously, I have been making new blinds for all of the windows. It sounds more complicated than it is. It has merely required purchasing grassy beach mats and applying a custom fabric trim around the edges.
I have also painted our front door so it’s no longer a black hole. It now presents a seacoast cottage effect, but the color did not quite turn out to be the color I wanted it to be so I will be tinting the paint and reapplying a “topcoat”.
Additionally, I have spent time glamorizing the downstairs powder room with new hardware, paint and art.
There’s another project still looming before me which consists of re-theming the kitchen (adding textural wallpaper and painting the cabinets)… as well as emptying out the living room to get our vast array no-longer-needed items out the door… and making space for a small sofabed my sister is passing along to me (which I will be revamping/updating when I actually get it… which should be very soon).
Our entire house is a whirlwind of decorating activity.
Here are a few project pics:
Behind the “new” blue hooks above, you may have noticed faux wood wallpaper. That’s new, too! I’m not quite done putting it up, but… here’s a preview:
Next… here are two DIY revamps made to a couple of items found at our local Goodwill — purchased right after we delivered a donation around the back of the store.
So… like I said… super busy… but… in a good way. 🙂
