I truly do. And who doesn’t? The sight of it in my mailbox is like seeing a sweet little bottle of creative serum in there. I pour over the pages, dog-ear what I want (like all of it), I mark the things I want to make, and the rooms I want to recreate in my house.
When we moved into our town house in March, my friend Becky helped me get my decorating-groove back. We hung things, set up the rooms, and primped pretty much every nook and cranny. You can see what we did here. The one room that didn’t get a whole lot of attention was my room. We did find some sweet curtains, but it still needed more.
That’s where Pottery Barn comes in. I used it as my inspiration for my bedroom. I love their soothing rooms and that’s how I wanted mine to look. I was scanning pinterest for ideas for something cool to hang over my bed. Nothing really jumped out at me except for some shelves. I went to HomeGoods on the hunt for a cool looking shelf. But I found this huge driftwood thing. I held a quick-official-kid-vote and the driftwood won, two to one (three to one, counting me). The shelf idea went out the window real quick.
I’m so excited about how it all came together. I found the red-striped pillows at HomeGoods too. I saved myself the $100 I wanted to spend on a duvet cover and sewed up my own with fabric I had on hand.
The calm, soothing, Pottery Barn-esque theme I was going for was achieved. Yeah! Jarrod made fun of how much I said “I love it!” Like when he came home from work on Monday: “Oh my gosh, I love this room.” Tuesday: “Oh my gosh, I love this room!” I think he really means it though.
My 6-week plan included some house projects that I wanted finished before my parents get here next month. So a big fat check mark is next to “My Bedroom” in my planner now. Next on my project list is some projects in the boys’ room. I painted a dresser and desk navy blue yesterday. Now to add some bright orange comforters, some cute side-table stuff, and to find something fun to hang over their beds.
So what are you up to this weekend? Projects? Relaxing? Both?? That’s my favorite 🙂 Either way, have a great one!
