I have a problem when it comes to decorating the cozy brick house: I obsess over the details + I can't commit. I search online for the perfect chairs and let them sit in my virtual shopping cart for 3 weeks while I decide if they're really the right ones. I buy prints that go unframed for...ever? I make a decision. Then I second guess myself. I get distracted by life, other projects, stuff. Do you do the same? Please... someone out there, please say you do the same!
It's time for a change. I'm tired of living in a half decorated space + I have a game plan. I know I promised a couple of weeks ago to reveal my craft room but another project has more priority right now. It's the girls' room. Abigail and Audrey begged and pleaded to move their room. They wanted to sleep closer to the boys which meant my old craft room would become their new space. They've been in their new (completely undecorated!) room for months. I'm ashamed.
Here are some changes we've made so far:
-Abby chose a soft blue paint color and Ryan promptly painted.
-We organized the dresser, dejunked the bookcase and donated the old decor.
-We ditched the girls' separate beds and opted to have them share a queen.
We're keeping the old furniture. I plan to replace the hardware on the dresser and hopefully snag a nightstand on Craigslist that can be painted an accent color. This means all there is to buy is bedding and accessories. I've already purchased some favorite things and have even had a few of them tucked away for awhile. I plan on sharing those with you soon. Maybe later today or tomorrow? Until then, I'd love to know how you go about decorating. Do you do it slowly over time or tackle it all at once? Do you decorate room by room? Going room by room is helping me stay focused right now but I'm all ears. I'm really interested in how other people do this.
