Good Vibes

September 1st, 2013

It’s been quire awhile since I can say I’ve felt inspired to create and or to be creative.

Normally it’s more of an overwhelming feeling of where to start, how to pay for it, never having enough time, blah, blah, blah.

I think the good vibes come from taking a week off with my family and unplugging from the daily grind.  It felt really good to spend time with those that I love and not have to rush around to the next task.  Our days pretty much consisited of wake up, eat, play by {insert pool or beach here}, eat, nap, play by {insert pool or beach here}, drink, eat, drink, go to bed.  Rough life right??

I hope I can keep up this inspired/refreshed attitude when the daily grind kicks back in.  I’ll keep you updated. In the mean time, here is a break down of some projects I want to tackle in the very near future.

1. Rework the Cornice Boxes from our old living room for the windows in the new one.

Sounds easy right? Not quite.

The old windows were about 4′ wide and 7′ tall.  New windows are 2’5″ wide and 5′ tall.

Can you guess where I am going with this?

Yeah- the old cornice boxes smother the new windows.  I think I have figured out how to make it work.  Stay Tuned.

There are also 3 windows in the new space, where the old one only had 2.

Hmm…Could 2 windows have cornice boxes and one window have drapes?

2. Paint fingernail polish accent stripe on Bathroom Light Fixtures.

{just like Little Green Notebook did here}

What color to pick for each bathroom? Hmm on that too.

3.  Paint Hall Light Fixture and Hall Table fun bright new colors.

I’m leaning towards chartruese for the table and chinese red for the light fixture.

4. Hang the IKEA drapes that were orginally intended for the old house nursery in the  new guestroom.

I want to change the standard grommet look to a Pinch Pleat Style with some banding along the edges.

Like these from Erika from Urban Grace Interiors.

Finally, I have decided that my dream job would be to spend the day scavenging thrift stores, craigslist, and alleys for awesome furniture that just needs a little love.   I would bring it home. Clean it. Paint it. Make it beautiful again. And then sell it. {anyone want to be my first customer?}

Until then I’ll stick with my 9-5 job.  Happy Sunday Everyone!
