Am I up for a Home Makeover Challenge? Let's Hope So!

I don't know if any of you know this, but I am absolutely the most un-creative person when it comes to home decorating. Actually, let me take that back. It's not that I am not creative, it's probably that I am too creative and have 12 different decorating personalities. One minute I want to be shabby chic, the next modern and sleek, and the next, eclectic and artsy. I love the beach look, the uptown loft look, the cottage in Ireland look, I can not make up my mind! Decorating your home is much more pricey, time consuming, and semi-permanent than dressing yourself. I can be creatively bi-polar when it comes to my wardrobe...but my house, well-not so much. That is why for the most part, it is currently, un-decorated. (It was ALL shabby chic, now I am sooo over that...and Nick hated living in a dollhouse)

I have decided to start one bedroom at a time (Nick is only allowing me this right now, because he #1 doesn't want me to spend the money or the time on it, #2 HE wants to buy and pick out new EVERYTHING when we buy our new home!) So, the bedroom is where I am starting.

I have bedroom furniture already that is made out of oak. I am so tired of that color. I have a more luxurious bedspread, in a deep olive green, and have a few accessories in gold, lamps that are tortoise shell designed glass, and crystal. I am making the leap this weekend, and painting all of my furniture like the pictures above. CANT WAIT to show you all the before and after photos! Y'all make me stick to it, OKAY?!?!

My furniture is very close in design, so I think I can pull this look off. I went to a vintage/consignment shop to look for a headboard to paint. No luck...but I did find some beautiful pictures, 4 of them, for $50. Yipee!

I know this look may be played out, but I still like it. Let's just pray that I can get my creative juices flowing, and execute this look properly by Sunday. WORK WORK! Pray for me....and Nick (I may get cranky!)


  1. Oooh...that's very pretty. Love black furniture! Did you try the mattress factory for a headboard (i think that's the name-over on Cherry Rd.). It's really small and looks a little shady on the outside, but if you go down into the back basement part (yeah, like that sounds even better right)sometimes they have deeply discounted furniture down there. My aunt went a few weeks ago and said they had a lot of headboards from an old hotel.

  2. GIRL! I am impressed! So are you not doing the whole living room now thing?!?! You are confusing me, my brain hurts! lol, and yes, I will force you to show pictures...or else the Borat in me will come out!!

  3. Love it!! So pretty. Good luck with your creativity and NOT kicking Nick's ass. :)

  4. I can't wait to see it! I love the style of furniture. Post pics as soon as your done!
    I hope you had a better day today at work girl!
