Room to Create


I’m fighting the perfectionist side of me big time this morning in that I didn’t want to post the final photos of my room until it was complete. 
Until all the clutter was put away in proper places, on some bookcases_ 
cute framed prints hung on the wall_ a rug put down that would bring it all together…. I could go on and on but let’s face it, I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get all of that. 
And for now, this is what I have and this is what it looks like… clutter and all. :)




The color is a PPG color called Serendipity and at first sight I really felt it was too bold/ dark. It's a pretty aqua color but I was originally thinking of something a little lighter…It wore on me though, and I wonder now why I even had an issue with it. I do the same thing with my hair. When I first see the new color I’m like ooooooooh, it’s pretty bold and then after a week I’m like it’s fine. 
Cray, cray…i tell ya!



Jode has been a painting little machine man. He painted 2 desks_ a frame_ the lamp_ dream sign_ 2 shelves_ and painting takes time, doesn’t it? I get a tad impatient and want it dry and ready to go but it doesn’t work that way. The weather plays a huge part in it as well as having the right equipment. I have to admit, I’m a little fearful of doing our kitchen. I just know how big of a job it’s going to be…. Worth it_ but just not anticipating it really well.



Did I tell you that I purchased this table with 3 chairs at the Salvation Army about 5 months ago for $45? At the time I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. I just knew that I wanted it bc of it’s character. It has a leaf that extends it out too, but now I think I've found the perfect spot. The chairs I use over in our dining room.



I’m so thankful for this space to dream_ create_ and make a mess in.

Hope you have mucho fun this weekend, too. Whether you do something or nothing_ clean or mess things up_ happy weekend to ya!

  1. I love it just the way that it is already, so I can't imagine what it'll look like after you put all of your little finishing touches on it!

    I'm always the same way though about wanting everything to be perfect. We're always our own toughest critic. I plan to do a photo home tour on our blog *soon*...I just need to commit to it & get it done! ;)
