Right now we are living in a sea of boxes! Hubs hasn't been able to help unpack too much because he was on call Monday (and again today) and he has to study for the exam at the end of his Pediatrics rotation next week. I've been unpacking every day after work...which is totally wearing me out! I can't wait to really be able to unpack/decorate this weekend! Most of my clothes are still packed away, but I did manage to organize my shoe closet!
I've got most of my shoes in there, but I have no idea what to do with my boots!
(The green walls have a little too much yellow in this picture to show the real paint color.)
I'm having such a difficult time finding home decor stuff I like! Our home stores are super limited here and none of them seem to have what I want. I love bright colors and everything available seems to be muted! I need help: does anyone know of any good places to find home decor stuff online?
Here is the fabulous blue color we painted our living room.
Sorry for the boring picture of the blank wall! I will have more exciting pictures once it's decorated.
I've had such a time finding a yellow lamp so today I bought this teal one at TJ Maxx and I'm spray painting it. I have NO idea what I'm doing...but I figured it couldn't be that difficult so I decided to wing it! I put a few coats on it last night, but I think I need more paint so it's drying now and I'm planning to finish it this afternoon. We'll see how it turns out! I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the lampshade yet.
I also want yellow curtains and since I can't find them...I'm thinking of making them too. I'm tempted to order this fabric, but I can't decide if it would make fabulous or crazy looking curtains! Plan B is to get solid (maybe somewhat sheer?) yellow curtains and use the fabric for throw pillows. Opinions?
On a more fashionable topic...there are so many sales going on right now!
These are some items I've got my eye on...
What fabulous summer sales have y'all found? Hopefully I'll have more exciting new home pictures on Monday!
