For the past week or so, I’ve been watching friends talk about making things happen in the new year. While this is all well and good, I hadn’t really thought of anything I needed to do.
Until about 3 days ago.
I have now decided to take on a personal project.
‘Cause, you know, raising a family, looking for work, hunting for auditions, and being in a band just doesn’t keep me busy enough.
So, I’ve been looking at my home in a completely different light.
And believe me, if I could anything about the lighting, I would.
But I’ve been surveying the rooms and thinking, I have to change this.
I need to find inexpensive, family-friendly ways to turn my house into a home.
We have a thousand gorgeous pictures of a gorgeous little boy with a pretty fabulous family and they’re all stocked up in the computer, never to see thelight of day. That seems unfair.
We have a pretty big kitchen that has its faults (almost no counter space, plain white walls with muddy brown accents. yikes.), but it also has its charms. I want to emphasize what I love about it and make it our own. We’ve been living in “somebody else’s house” for two years now.
I am a novice, but I think that with the help of Crate & Barrel, The Container Store, Sur La Table (and probably my mother), I can do make it show off OUR family.
I just hope I survive the avalanche that awaits me in the living room closet.
