things have been quiet here on the blog. sorry.
i am still creating each and every sign that comes through the shop, juggling the business end of things and keeping the kids and house semi-clean.
when i do get to pull out the list and choose something that can be done quickly and on a budget
i get super excited!
this month i chose
planking the bedroom ceiling
before we planked the ceiling i dry brushed white paint on the headboard to cover the stained wood making it cohesive.
here is what it looked like before it was a planked ceiling.
we have been here a year february 1. you can read more about that here.
i keep a running list of my dreams for our home. do you do that too?
my husband is only home every six weeks and then only for a week at a time so when he comes home you can imagine his list…wink
my main focus has been on my bedroom. making it a sanctuary. a refuge after a draining day.
neural layers ( i am going with gray, creams and white, gold and a touch of a grayish pink ) textures, a touch of fur, wall art that encourages me….oh! candles are a must!
to me, planking falls under layers and texture.
i eventually want to plank all of the walls but a simple change to the ceiling made a huge difference.
it added warmth and texture and was a relatively inexpensive and easy fix to our popcorn ceilings.
i haven’t decided whether or not to paint it white, whitewash, or stain it darker.
right now, i am going to live with the natural wood awhile before deciding.
we will wait and see.
as i have said before this is the first home i have ever really been able to decorate the way i wanted.
to be honest, it has taken me a couple of years to nail down my style.
i am getting there.
now, i am trying to find a light fixture and night stand that i really LOVE
what about you? what little things are on your dream list for your home? what little steps are you taking to get there
and while i am asking…
any ideas on a light fixture? i’d love to hear your thoughts
