Trying To Freshen Up a Bit!
A few months ago we decided that we needed to get a new TV and TV stand since we were SO behind the times with our rabbit ears!! Not to mention the fact that we would have had no TV reception had we stayed with the old TV set up so we had to do something!
Well, here's the TV that I wrote about in a previous post.
It's cute. I like the stand, but the wall above it was all new territory for me since we had always used a large armoire to house our large dinosaur of a television. After several attempts and ideas that didn't trip my trigger (to quote my father!) I decided to try this:
I think it looks ok, but the decorators say that you should group things in 3's or 5's and this is obviously a 4! I have a beige barn star but it made the wall and room look too patriotic because those grey looking stars are actually shades of blue. Red, White and Blue. Uh, no.
So I am living with it for a while to see how I feel about the stars. AND I thought I would ask you for your honest opinion. Go ahead! Shoot straight with me. I can take it!
Another thing that I have wanted to do is add more white to my kitchen. I am seriously debating painting the cabinets white because I have those lovely, boring, brownish cabinets that they put in all houses. HOWEVER! Our friends, (I am having trouble linking to people here! What's that about?) Chad and Faith, gave us this great framed picture of our last name for Christmas and I have wanted it to be in a prominent place in our home because I just love it!
Isn't it cool? So I put that up on top of our cabinets and balanced it on the other end with my other barn star. What do you think?
See what I mean about the brown? BORING! But I do love, love, love the picture with the name so this will probably stay.
I have also been OVER the color of our front door and shutters. We get the sun blazing the front of our house all day long and the paint is just so faded. I wanted to add some interest and I love the cottage look so here's what I made for the door. It may be a little much, but I like it!
Are the flowers big enough or WHAT?
So, that's my spring freshen up so far! My summer freshen up just may be those cabinets so stay tuned!!
