things have been quiet here on the blog. sorry.i am still creating each and every sign that comes through the shop, juggling the business end of things and keeping the kids and house semi-clean.
when i do get to pull out the list and choose something that can be done quickly and on a budget
i get super excited!
this month i chose
-planking the bedroom ceiling
before we planked the ceiling i dry brushed white paint on the headboard to cover the stained wood making it cohesive.
here is what it looked like before
we have been here a year february 1. you can read more about that here.
i keep a running list of my dreams for our home. do you do that too?
my husband is only home every six weeks and then only for a week at a time so when he comes home you can imagine his list...wink
my main focus has been on my bedroom. making it a sanctuary. a refuge after a draining day
neural layers ( i am going with gray, creams and white, gold and a touch of a grayish pink ) textures, a touch of fur, wall art that encourages me....oh! candles are a must!
to me, planking falls under layers and texture.
i eventually want to plank all of the walls but a simple change to the ceiling made a huge difference.
it added warmth and texture and was a relatively inexpensive and easy fix to our popcorn ceilings.
i haven't decided whether or not to paint it white, whitewash, or stain it darker. right now, i am going to live with the natural wood awhile before deciding. we will wait and see.
as i have said before this is the first home i have ever really been able to decorate the way i wanted. to be honest, it has taken me a couple of years to nail down my style. i am getting there.
now, i am trying to find a light fixture and night stand that i really LOVE
what about you? what little things are on your dream list for your home? what little steps are you taking to get there
and while i am asking...
any ideas on a light fixture? i'd love to hear your thoughts
