a fresh start on a Monday.

freshstart

I have three(ish) days until I leave for Influence. The logical thing to do was to redecorarrange my house. It took me all summer to pull the wallpaper down in this room. And then a few weeks to get the pesky trim painted, which I didn’t want to do because I was feeling lazy at that point. But I did it anyway. The budget for all of this hoohah is basically nothing so I robbed other rooms and my stash of things that I keep hoping someday they’ll find a home on one of my walls. I swore I would never have white walls again after years and years of living with them. It makes all the difference and I’m so glad I went back on my word.

My house is a mess. I’m not persistent enough to measure or even make sure that every picture is straight. I have more than enough to work on before I leave on Thursday. But I’m happy. I want to live in this room and my girl has been camped out in here hosting tea parties and secret clubs.It’s not totally finished but it’s good enough for right now.

PS. Here’s a before shot. We lived with it this way for over four years.

  1. “The logical thing to do was to redecorate my house.” Girl. I think this all. the time. Work deadline? Time to redecorate. Need to cook dinner? I probably should redecorate right this second. It’s a vicious cycle.
