As a newbie blogger, I haven't quite filled my "portfolio". I am newly married and moved into a serious bachelor pad. Not a frat house bachelor pad, but the kind where he has been divorced for a few years and had the basics. 4 forks, 3 spoons, a knife here and there; a small and sad little picture on a huge wall, a purple sofa from Ikea and a slipcovered and badly abused loveseat. Basically everything his ex-wife hated. I won't go there. Bless her heart. :) Have I drawn the picture in your mind? So needless to say, I have moved in and taken over. Super Decoratormommaidbringinghomethebacon Lady! Basically what I am doing here is showing you all the little steps I am taking to make this house a home for my wonderful hubby and I to raise our little rays of sunshine in. At least this is our home for the time being. Until my son comes home as a 6 foot 2 inch pre-teen. And then we will probably have to move into something a little more accomodating...*sigh*. One of my little projects to fill the huge wall that housed the sad little picture (and it was an u-hug-ly picture) with shelves and pictures. The one shelf I started with didn't cooperate a first, but I provided what every teacher has in her box of magic...VELCRO!
The poor and blank wall started out as this:
I love how it turned out. Of course, I know..I know, I need a lot more pics and they are a comin'. But for now I just think she is the cutest little thang.
So now...I am asking everyone for the perfect color for my walls. I would like a deeper khaki. What do you think? And what suggestions do you have?
I hope to post more through the weekend. But with all 5 kids in the house. I am not bettin' on it.
Did anyone recognize the little birds? They are my dollar store re-vamp. Just spray painted them with rubbed oil bronze...my new best friend, thanks to all of you talented ladies out there..:)
