We have found a house that we LOVE, but, nothing is official yet. No papers signed as of now. Once things are set in stone (hopefully in the next week or two) I will have an awesome story about how God, once again, provided in His perfect timing. So that's all I'm going to say about it for now. We know for sure that whatever happens with the house, we won't be staying where we are currently. And the amature interior decorator inside me is screaming with joy. I can barely contain it.
When I'm presented with a situation to redecorate, especially a blank canvas of a house, my desire is to go mad. I could take a whole week and shop until I can't see straight. Then paint, DIY, and style until I can't move. I could seriously have a decorate till I drop party. I know I have a few friends who'd willingly join me.
Our budget sits back and laughs at that idea with an arrogant "let me know how that goes" type laugh. So, this will be a slow, progressive, on an extreme budget type deal. But I'm excited. My goal is to use as much of what we already have and redo things. I have big plans for our living room end tables, our bedroom furniture, and the girls iron beds. And that's just the short list.
This was the first sample I saw. It's obviously in a deeper jewel tone. It's called Santa Maria Gem. Next to it are the Sherwin-Williams paint chip suggestions. This is my safe zone. These colors are ones that I understand. I can easy put a room together based on these. I love the bold punch of red and blue, but it's fairly sedated.
