Restless or Creative?

Thursday, March 25, 2010

I'm feeling restless.  Needing a change.  Wanting to freshen things up around here.  I'm not really wanting new projects, but at the same time I am wanting new projects.  Do you know what I mean? 

Lately I've been enjoying this blog.  Holly is amazing.  I'm loving all of the white she uses. 

Like this:

and this:

and this:

Oh, and this:

Beautiful right?

From Holly's blog, I found this blog. 
[I've gotta remember this little shade if I ever decide
to make the change to WHITE.]

Love the pleats (or a ruffle would be cute too.) mind is reeling.

And then last night I was inspired by this: 

[Thank you Better Homes and Gardens for this lovely photo.]

When I saw it, I thought, "Hey, I could do that!"
I mean, I've got this space that desperately needs to be updated:
[Yeah, I've still got my Valentine's Day stuff up.  I know I'm a slacker.]

* O.K.  I was just rereading my post and am kind of embarrassed.  Seriously, is it really the end of March?  Oh my gosh.  I really need to get on the ball here...
And I've got these:

Are you seeing the potential here people?  All I need is just some white paint and some crown molding, right?  [I like to downplay the amount of work and money that goes into these kinds of things.]  I know it would be just lovely though.  But then I'd have to repaint this:


and these stools:

(plus the dining set in the background)  Yeah, don't ask. I just painted that green last summer.  I'm already regretting it. 

I haven't convinced my husband yet of all of this.  How crazy would it be to transform a house full of lots of red and green to whites and beiges?  Really crazy I think...  I'll probably have to let the idea go for now, at least until I finish some other projects.  It's fun to dream though isn't it?  It is.  But it's also a little bit of a curse - this creative gene.

Well, thanks for listening to me while I redecorated my whole house in my imagination.   I'm off to reality now.  Bye!
