Never thought I would say that but...that's my feeling about Christmas this year.
The changes in the color of the blog are my attempt to spread a little seasonal cheer around here. But I'm still not feeling it yet, and we're fully in December now. By now, usually I already have my tree up, and I'm playing Christmas music. But so far this year...I haven't quite figured it out yet.
I am excited that I got my bedroom remodel done (and if the green is anything, it's certainly cheerful and I suppose, the tiniest bit christmassy...I sure get a lot of various responses to that green when people see it in person...everything from "OH I LOVE IT!" to "Oh...is this...did you think...did you think it was going to be this green? Is that what you were going for?". Honestly I don't care if someone doesn't like it. It makes me feel good. I feel like that room is keeping me sane right now.
SO, as always one project, creates another project. I figure I have at least 4 large(ish) projects I need to complete in the house in the next 6 months or so.
1. The large bedroom in the front of the house needs to be completely re-done.
2. The small bedroom needs to be completely re-done.
3. What used to be my bedroom needs to become a home office/library
4. Where my desk currently is needs to be turned into a nice little kitchen nook.
I've been collected images of all kinds of things with all kinds of ideas and trying to decide where I should put my energy first. I think my temptation would be to do the home office first, but really, I think I should do the large bedroom first and then move on from there.
And guess what color I'm seriously considering?
I never thought I would get up the nerve to do it, but I think it could really work in that room.
So maybe partly as a my final little bah humbug to the season and also as inspiration for the newest project, here's some black inspiration. I'm hoping to have this particular project finished before New Years.
