That said, before the chaos hit, I was "tweaking" the master bedroom.
And an "in progress" picture.
I don't know what hit me, but all of a sudden, I just needed a lighter, summery look.
I "borrowed" furniture, art, and accessories from other rooms, lots of scraping and shoving--great exercise, right? The white chair was in the living room, and the ottoman was in the bath. The little French chest needs a top, maybe a remnant from the stone/marble place, but it'll have to go topless this summer.
I'm wild about the drapery rods ($8 and $6, Big Lots). The draperies are linen, straight and simple. I'm waiting on 5 panels. I'm waiting for strong men to move the furniture that's not pictured. I'm waiting for time, inspiration, and $$, the holy trio of design projects.
Well, it did look unstable on those two puny nails.
Maybe I'll go peach and green for fall.
That's the way it goes around here.
I don't know if my blogger friends ever get blocked, or hit the word wall, but it can be miserable. It's like being hungry, you're craving something...you just don't know what. So you eat everything, and nothing satisfies. Sometimes puttering around the house, making a tablescape (or eating something carby), will break up the logjam. Bigger projects, like the one in the MBR, demand a lot more--a bad mix when I'm on Deadline.
Thanks to Bandwith's ability to plan road trips, we did manage to see Bill Mayer at the Ryman last Saturday night. And this Thursday, Mr. Tom will be hanging the old shelf (still up in the air about painting it--I'm 90% sure I will leave it alone)
