Home Decor and Pink and Green Thursday!

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

I am still deep in the middle of unpacking, but I'm definitely making some progress! I thought I'd share some a few images of our home so far.

Remember the lamp I was planning to paint from this post? Well...here it is now! I love the bright yellow color! I added a few coats of acrylic coating over the yellow, but now I'm thinking I might like it better if I add a glossy finish to it. I'm not thrilled with the shade, but I haven't decided what to do about that yet.


I also found these fabulous yellow flowers at World Market! Since Michaels seems to think fall is practically next week I couldn't really find any bright yellow flowers that I liked there. They were all an autumn-y golden yellow shade...not what I want. I was super excited when I stumbled across these in World Market.


Hubs and I made a trip to Calico Home over the weekend and I checked out that lovely lattice fabric from this post. It was absolutely perfect and I ordered enough to make curtains for our living room! I can't wait!

I had never been in there before...but I think I'm in love! You know I have a weakness for delightful prints and patterns and there were just so many!

To play along with Trish's Pink and Green Thursday this week here are some pictures of my craft room so far. It's definitely not finished...but it's getting there!



I made the pink and white storage boxes by covering shoe boxes with this fabulous pink and white wrapping paper I found at Hallmark. I used another shoe box (and some serious tape) to make the file folder holder and then covered that with the wrapping paper so it would match too!


I have such a problem with jewelry storage! I like to be able to easily see my jewelry when I'm putting outfits together, but it looks cluttery if it's all laying out. Here's my solution so far (I'm not in love with it and I change my mind constantly so hopefully I can come up with something a little better)!


(these are hanging on the closet wall)

Since my craft room is my "creative" space, I thought I'd keep my clothes in there too. Lol I definitely think putting together outfits requires creativity so it seemed to make sense! Right now I have most of my skirts/non-folded pants hanging in the jewelry closet and my shirts, dresses, and cardigans in my wardrobe...but I still have a whole closet of clothes I haven't moved yet so I may have to rework this plan! I also commandeered a closet in hubs office for my out of season clothing!

How do y'all organize all your clothes and accessories? I am always trying to come up with a better system!

  3. I hear you with Michaels thinking fall is tomorrow... I was in hobby lobby last week and they had Christmas out. Really? It's JUST started to be summer, and I barely have a tan give me a break! I am in lust over your craft room! I have always dreamed of having a pink room so I am completely jealous.

  4. I just gasped when I saw your craft room! Fiancé turned a guest room into my "wardrobing room" and allowed me to paint it pink, but I think that is the only pink room I'm going to get in the house. ;)
