So this week I did some fun little
projects in the living room.
Nothing major...just some fluffing
and rearranging of things on the
Lets remember where we started...
Before I started this process I was pretty
sure that I wanted to move the two pictures
that had been over the entertainment center
to each side of the window. This worked as
far as I am concerned and Warren agrees.
I'll show you a photo of it once the
next step is completed.
My project for this next week is to
find a soft and relatively sheer valance or
drape for the window. I want something that
is kind of creamy in color.
My question to you...
What do I do with the
rose tattouage over the window?
Shall I leave it
Paint over it?
The paint is sitting on the dining
room table. I almost painted it when I was
touching up nail holes this week but I just
want to be sure.
Then just for the time being I moved the pictures
from the window wall over the entertainment center.
It surely breaks all kinds of rules but for now
I kind of like it.
No money spent yet...but this week I will
look for a window treatment. For a while
we had a burgundy valance up there but it
wears on me. Too much strong color.
That is a very big window!
Items on the entertainment center:
Kitty - Gift from a neighbor woman when I
was a young child. One of these days
I'll tell that story.
Dress Vase - A fun paint your own pottery
I did with the kids and my friend Shelley
a couple of years ago.
Antique Clock - I first saw this clock sitting
on my In-laws Family Room Mantel. It is a noisy
clock but I never wind it. It is just beautiful
the way it is.
Candle Holder - I found this at Kirkland's in the
clearance section while looking for an Advent Centerpiece
It wasn't right for that so I brought it home.
I love it with the clock.
The Candle - Made as a gift from our friends at
It is bees wax and glows so
nicely with a tea light inside.
The Lamp - Inherited from Warren's Grandma Charlotte.
I love it too.
So, of all of the things that were up on
this surface before...only those that have
special meaning and play nicely together
Thanks for your opinions last week.
I am taking all of these things into
