Hi there and happy Wednesday! The week is already half over and I still feel like I am recovering from the whole holiday hangover. I finally just got through all of the laundry that had been piling up. Our Great Room still looks like a bomb went off and that is certainly my next project to tackle. A Playroom for Jillian. I think the days of just keeping all of her toys in the Great Room basket are numbered. I don't want our Great Room to turn into a Toys R Us show room. Her toys are starting to get bigger and we are running out of space quickly!!!!
Speaking of projects, Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality is doing a link up party to recap your Top Projects of 2010. Since I am not super crafty or a home improvement diva just yet, I thought I would recap a few of the home decor improvements that I am most proud of this year. Now with the holidays behind us, I can't wait to get a jump start on my home decor goals of 2011!
Top Projects 2010
My Master Bedroom Evolution was definitely a work in progress for several years, however, this spring we finally had a finished room. We furnished our room with Wal-Mart's Canopy line and couldn't have been happier with it. My Restoration Hardware knock off bedding is still my most favorite thing in the whole room. I am still looking for a mirror and more wall decor for this room but it feels good to have it completely furnished.
I love how Jillian's Nursery turned out and would like to do even more with it in 2011. I love how the 'J' vinyl decal looks above her bed, it's one of my favorite things in her room.
My biggest home decor find of the year has to be the Sunburst Mirror that I found at TJMaxx/Homegoods. I had been looking on line for months for one and just happen to come across one at our local TJMaxx a few months ago searching for something else. It was love at first sight!!!
I used my new Kitchen Island Apothecary Jars for two projects this year. One was for every day using fake fruit and the other was using Christmas ornaments for the Holidays.
My mind is has been spinning lately with new ideas to decorate our house in 2011. Here are just a few I had in mind:
1. Purchase entry way tables.
2. Finish the Great Room Curtains.
3. Convert the Den into a functional Den/Playroom.
4. New Kitchen curtains and valance.
5. Paint the Dining room a blue/gray color.
6. Paint the Powder Room Sherwin Williams Restrained Gold.
7. Purchase more wall decor for the Master Bedroom and Master Bath.
