Just thought I'd ask ya'lls opinion here. Isn't it ironic that I wait 21 years for a new window, and I can't even see it. I 'know' it's there though, and that gives me peace. I still have to spackle and touch up a spot over the window that I scraped, and the windowframes themselves need a touch up.
Here is the 'finished' product, after I put the furniture back. My question is, do you think I should pull the curtains back, or leave them as they are? I just can't decide. Now that I think of it, I so should have enclosed a pic of the curtains pulled back. Doh! It's too dark now to take it. Do you guys think that the lamp is too big for the table?
I need to go shopping for some new doodads for the living room. I have an entertainment center, and some shelves over the couch that are in dire need of merchandising. That is what I call decorating. I used to work at Pier One, and we would 'merchandise'. What is it about fall that makes you want to nest? I plan on shopping soon, buying whatever strikes my fancy, coming home, playing with it, and then returning 90% of it. It's the way I roll.
Do you think the berries in the vase on the coffee table is redundant, since there is a vase on the floor with berries? These are the kind of things that keep me up at night. It's terrible. If you only knew the extent of my disorder. It's frightening. I'm sure there's medication for it.
This winter when there aren't so many outside chores screaming my name, I plan on scanning pictures of the house when we first bought it. Oh my. How it smelled, how sad it was. The livingroom has gone through quite a few changes. I used to be VERY country primitive. Then, not so much....more traditional. I'm not sure what I am now. I really love Pottery Barn. I want to incorporate a few more rustic things in. Big Flea Market in Kane County, Illinois that I'm going to in October. I sure hope to find some treasures.
Thanks in advance for all your comments and help!
