I haven't left the couch in 31 hours, and I have already called for a sub for tomorrow.
Q: How did I catch whatever it is I have?
A: Maybe it was spending the weekend with over 300 high schoolers at a Student Council leadership convention where I got about 10 hours of total sleep.
Q: What have I been doing between my self-induced NyQuil comas?
A: Gathering inspiration for my next few projects.
I simply must have a ladder. I have my E.I. on the look out as well as Rusty and Reginia. I look at every old farmhouse I pass on the way to work to see if they have one propped up outside. I will knock and make an offer. Here are a few I like:
I believe what I really want is called an orchard ladder. I would also love an old library ladder. I want it to be wooden, not an A-frame and aged looking. I have hopes of putting it in my bedroom and draping scarves and ties over it. It would also look great in a bathroom to house towels. Any ideas where to find one?
I am also going to tackle the guest bedroom this summer. I saw this headboard and fell in love.
Again, I pass several dilapidated barns that are falling over on my way to work. When I am in the truck and it is daylight out, I am going to knock with cash in hand. I think four or five pieces will do. Do you think I am kidding?!!
And wouldn't this bedding just look great next to that rough wood?
I can't wait to try the tutorial and create it for around 30 bucks!
I almost have enough empty frames gathered to do my frame collage. I am drawing off of these images for inspiration.
I am thinking of wrapping them around the corner of my master bedroom where my reading chair is and end up above my mantle. Since my walls are Gray Matters, I think that a punchy, mustard accent color would look great mixed in with some clean white ones.
I also found this today. I am thinking it is a must to make for a large empty spot on a wall. My dining room is needing something since I couldn't get that clock I saw.
In this picture, the design isn't colored. It is just the color of the toilet paper rolls. I am thinking I would spray mine to make it more accented in the room.
So - my biggest question has to do with the headboard. What word should I write on it? It is for a guest room, so "love" might not be the right word. Should it say "sleep" or "dream" or maybe a word in French...give me some ideas!
*Also, I added a little picture in my sidebar with the paint colors in my home, so far. I am painting the kitchen this weekend, and am still staring at the sample spots on the wall....
