Week 2 of this link up party! If you missed it, here's week one. I'm redoing one of our guest bedrooms, and hopefully can finish it within 6 weeks.
I think it's good to start with a plan before you do anything in life. Especially decorating, duh. I like to put together images/fabrics etc. that I like and see what works together. I also usually sketch my ideas. This is good for those with hubbies that "can't picture it". That's what mine is always telling me anyways- "ehh... I can't picture that..." Ha. That's when you have to be courageous, press on, and do it anyways, ladies. Trust me.
Usually my doodling takes place on NFL Sunday, because Hubs loves it and I just can't get into it. I'm a college football girl through and through. By NFL game 2 or so, I'm zoned out and wanting to escape in a major way. Anyways...where was I? Oh yes, guest room.
And for me, I'm really big on making lists. It helps keep me organized, and for some reason writing something down makes it more permanent.
Guest Room To Do:
make curtains, choose fabric
shop my house for furniture, etc.
shop my favorite go-to spots for accessories
Speaking of artwork, my dad gave me a box of different prints that used to hang in my parents' house at some point during the last 30 plus years. There are some pretty great prints in here. I've chosen a few to frame for this makeover and will share that with you soon.
Thanks again, Linda, for hosting. See you next week!
