I finally painted!
It's only taken me 5 years, but I finally had the living room repainted from an awful lemon yellow to something much tamer; I will tell you though, it's almost too light for me, but I am learning to love it.
I know it's trendy, but I am not a "white" person. I love the look, but just never manage to get there. I see a white wall or space and have a burning, raging desire to put color on it. Maybe it's the artist vs. blank canvas thing in me... but I am much more curiosity shop than shabby chic.
This as my fresh painted, blank canvas.
I wanted a HUGE mirror on the wall like Restoration Hardware or Pottery Barn, but didn't really have the extra $500 sitting around...
but I did have $15 for the Dollar store.
So I bought 15 $1 mirrors.
Who said I can't have a big mirror for $15?? I saved so much durn money, that I bought me, myself and I some new drapes from Anthroplogie.
After all, they were on-sale!
p.s. drape pics coming soon!
p.p.s.. I don't know if the red pillow really goes, but I loooove that pillow. Crazy huh?
p.p.s.s. this one's for you Tara.
