I’m in the Mood to Redecorate…

Just wait. When my husband (who is subscribed to my blog, of course!) gets the notification that I published a post called “I’m in the Mood to Redecorate”, I’m gonna hear about it!

But honestly, I am sooo in the mood!

Right now, our living room is shades of brown and burgundy. I chose that because I felt like it was warm and comfy and hospitable – and it’s all those things. See?

I mean, I’m definitely no designer, but I think it’s cozy! But it’s been like that for a few years now, and I’m wanting to do something different! I think maybe white, and shades of yellow and gray!

Also, our comforter on the bed in the Master Bedroom needs to be replaced, so I’m thinking a combination of teal and corral! (The room is already teal and browns, but I want to brighten it up a little bit! It feels dark sometimes, and I don’t like that.)

And third, our front bedroom will eventually, down the road, no, I am not pregnant, turn into a nursery. And I’ve always loved the white, navy blue and kelly green combo…kind of like what I have going here on the blog! So I might go that route, one never knows!

As I’m pondering all of these things, I got an email from Holly at Chairish.

Okay, first of all: are you familiar with Chairish?

Pinterest Project Presented!

You all know I’m a huge fan of Pinterest! I like to share what works and what doesn’t from the various things I find there! Check out these previous posts HERE, HERE and HERE, if you want to see all the fun!

But I tried something new over the weekend, so, of course, I wanted to share! Have you seen this pin?

(You can find it over on my “Clean as a Whistle” Board on Pinterest!)

I mean, WOW! That’s pretty impressive, right?! (By the way, the above pin actually came from the lovely Lilly over at Listotic. If you’d like to see her original post, CLICK HERE!)

We have a tan microfiber couch and love seat just like this one…and the funny thing is that when my hubby spills something, he tries to clean it up with carpet stain remover. Which might actually work…except THEN you have a stain from the stain remover!

So we had a few actual stains…and then the “tried to clean this up before you saw it” stain…and then there was the stain from our Year’s Eve Party when one of our guests dumped an entire serving of grape soda on the couch…and then there was the stain from when Taffy the dog caught a beetle and played it to death on the love seat…you get the idea.

Although I would LOVE some new furniture (hint hint to my hubby if he’s reading this) to be honest, this set is only about 4 years old, so it’s still got some use left in it. I decided to try the above pin and see if it really worked or not.

Securing the Perfect Statement Chair…with One Kings Lane!

**PLEASE NOTE: While One Kings Lane DID provide me with the request to review their online resources, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

Do you  have a favorite chair at your house? (My hubby has been on me about getting him a recliner so he can have a chair that’s only his! Oh dear…) But more the kind of chair I’m speaking about is what is called a statement chair. Something like this one.

I don’t have one of these, but I have several spots around the house in which I’d like to place a cool statement chair like this one!

So when One Kings Lane contacted me regarding helping them introduce their new Home Decor Resource Guide via a statement chair, I was intrigued! But I wasn’t sure I had a chair to use for the process.
