I’ve been tackling a lot lately in anticipation of all of our family coming to visit at the end of the month. Suddenly I have a great excuse to finish up all of the decorating odds-n-ends that I’ve left around the house. The bad thing is that I’m not very good about remembering to take before pictures of my projects.
Remember my decorated table that I showed you a while back? Well, the light fixture that I ordered finally came in and I love, love, love it! It looks a little small in the picture, but it’s actually just the right size for our table. I also got the mirror hung that had been sitting on the floor for a couple of months. It was an old mirror that we’ve carted around the last few years. I wanted to update it, so I spray painted it a glossy chocolate brown to match my next fixture. Now, all I have left to do in the room is find some kind of buffet to store my dishes in.
The truth is, I hate buying rugs. Good ones are so expensive and just not that exciting to buy. There’s so many other things that I’d rather be spending my husband’s hard-earned money on, but unfortunately a room without a rug just looks unfinished to me and something that looks unfinished does not do well with my perfectionist personality. My formal living room is in desperate need of a rug but for whatever reason, I just can’t bring myself to spend the money on one. Obviously, it’s on my list of next tackles.
