Home Projects

 I'm going to paint our front door blue and fix up our entry way. It is such a mess right now but has a lot of potential
 I want to make silhouette pillows for our living room
I love this rug from anthro and I saw a great idea for embroidery and I am going to create some wall art with it.

I am loving chevron stripes right now and I really want to make something with this too. I think a wall may be too much for me right now but maybe some other cool feature. We will see how motivated I am

Since starting all the redecorating for the Wakefield house I have realized just how expensive my taste is. It really kind of sucks actually. So I have decided I need to be more artistic and create my own things for the house. I grew up in an artistic family and I love making things so this should be a pretty good plan. Here are a few of the things I have been thinking about doing. Some may take a really long time but I think they could be amazing! I promise pictures of the house are coming. Life has just been so crazy. I have only spent 1 day in my house in the past 2 and a half weeks. As soon as my parents get back from Denmark I promise to have a good update with pictures.

I totally dig chevron stripes. and a blue door would look so cute at the wakefield house! and i totally feel you on the expensive taste problem. that is why we will not have a cute house for a very long time. A. because the things i love are pricey and B. unlike you, i do not have the artistic ability to create the things i love. (or maybe i'm just lazy and would rather pay the money than try to find the time to do it myself- ha).

PS. I hope you had an awesome birthday! we miss you!
