In an effort to stick with my New Year’s Resolution (to appreciate the process and not just the completion) and because Lisa keeps requesting them, I’m posting a few pictures of my current projects…
A while back my friend Emily helped me to arrange some stuff on the walls. We came up with a plan to finish each arrangement and a few weeks ago I knocked that out. Above the piano I added those square wooden things. I picked out and painted the frames around the “family” wallhanging in my entryway niche. The black frames are funny because I spent months looking for uniform black frames that I liked and could afford. Then one day two things occurred to me…1) I could paint any frame black and 2) they didn’t all need to be the same frame. That stroke of genius helped me to finish this project up. I’m happy with it.
Thanks to my great friends Emily & Cindi and a creative streak I didn’t know I had, I’m so excited about this room! We finished painting the walls and we’re going to add some silk flowers and RJ is going to work on the chair rail. Our crib came in yesterday and the dresser is due to arrive soon so hopefully we’ll be put together in another week or two.
And finally, thanks to my great friends Amy & Cindi my bedroom is sporting “Twilight Grey” (with a white band at the roof angle…enlarge to see) and I’m loving it! I’m still looking for a curtain rod to match our furniture and so I can put up the white voile panels I got. I’m also waiting for RJ to hang Ashley’s portrait of Timp for me over the bed. It’s so great, I feel like I’m sleeping in some sort of resort every night. 🙂
