blue

I have a slight addiction to home DIY blogs and magazines.  Decorating, but not 'decorator' decorating.  Nothing too coordinated or polished.  Shabby chic with splashes of random color.  I've been dogearring and ripping out inspiration pages for fun bedrooms for years, but haven't been able to commit to a look/color scheme/etc.  I have that problem - I plan, plan, plan, and in the end just end up doing impulsive things because I cannot decide.  So when I woke up on Sunday morning, I bit the bullet, used paint I had on hand (Grandma's Sweater leftover from my parents' latest painting campaign), and went for it.  No test patches.  Figured I could just paint over it if I hated it.

I think I'm loving it.

Yesterday was my birthday.  Now that I'm sort of in the "mid" 30s, I'm stopping.  Just saying.

Oh, happy birthday one day late. How did it get to be the 25th already? I swear yesterday was the 21st. *grumble*

I'm a big blue fan for energy but actually find green more restful for bedrooms. But whatever, it's not like I actually DO anything about my tastes. And unfortunately my plan to be rich isn't working out so I'll just have to live with my bare, off-white walls.

That looks awesome! (I think it's funny that when I was renting I really resented not being able to paint walls... but now that I own I do everything to avoid having to re-paint.)
You've always had a great eye for decorating.
