Been away far too long so will try to do better! While I was away I have become obsessed with redoing, re purposing, reinventing, .....you get the idea. Thrift stores have become my favorite haunt. It all started with helping child #3 prepare for her new digs in Florida. Another post coming soon on how her furniture is coming along. But then I went shopping in my own house. I found this old wooden tray. Not bad as it is but a little tired looking. Soooo with a little paint it is now a special part of my guest room for only the price of a little paint. Go shopping in your home and see what kind of hidden treasure you can find. Hugs, ele
Have you ever seen a wonderful wallpaper or fabric that was very big and bold and thought to yourself, 'I could never pull that off'', or 'I like that but I don't think I could take a lot of it'?. The answer is to use it in a small place. Half baths, utility rooms, and entry halls are perfect places to go bold. Just because a space is small does not mean it can't be fun or have bold impact. Here is a half bath of my friends new home, the black molding really sets off this bold paisley. ( this home actually won a home show for the design the year before she bought it)
I also have used bold pattern in my entry hall. I have actually had this paper up for 10 years and am not a bit tired of it. You can see it through my glass front doors and I love coming into it.
So don't be afraid, go out thee and BE BOLD! You will love it!!!
