I'm a huge fan of Vintage rooms, but the way that my children are I don't think I could pull it off in a childs room. They would destroy it. Maybe a guest bedroom, or my bedroom. But on my bedroom my hubby said that he would rather have a room a little more masculine than girly. I agree. He doesn't want to sleep in a room with pink colors and lace and flowers. I get it, I get it.

But I still can't get over these rooms.

On a side note. The painting is coming along nicely. Hopefully soon I will have some finished projects as well as the whole room. Mwah!

Ok Today is the day

The hubs doesn't know that today is the day that I will be picking out paint. HEE HEE. It seriously drives him insane that I like to paint and change colors. I promised him when we lived at our other home and were moving into our new home that I wouldn't paint for 5 years. Well that time is up baby.

Here is my dilemma. I have couches in my front room. Not my first choice of color, but they were cheap. :) They are a hint of orange leather. Ok who am I kidding they are orange. Not a bright orange, just an orange. So I have two walls that I want to put the stencil on in this room. One before you walk into the room and one on a wall when you come in. I am trying to decide the color that I would like to put on these walls.

These aren't my couches, but I am lazy and don't want to go take a picture. But this is pretty darn close to the color of the couches.

Now I was thinking maybe a brown.

I looked on the color wheel. I

know so nerdy, but it's quite helpful. And in all reality these oranges and browns are very warm colors. I love me some warm colors. To accentuate these colors though you go across the color wheel to the Blues. It makes both colors stand out a little bit more. So now I am even more confused. I don't want my house to look like you are going into Cafe Rio for a salad, but I would like it to look like "wow that is so freakin cute" You get me dog.

I am going to choose today and get some crap done. It's coming almost winter and I have to park in my garage. You say what does parking in your garage and painting inside have to do with each other. Well I have so many projects in the garage. I need to get them done and out. Plus I need to be a little more organized. HEY A GIRL CAN DREAM RIGHT? MWAH!!!!

NO Mulah!!

It is really hard to decorate even if you are decorating cheap when you have no mulah. It is rather frustrating, because I have a million ideas, but no money to pull them off. Well I want to do a stencil right when you walk in my house and then one in the living room. Here are some of my favs. Which ones do you like. Go check out Royaldesignstudio.com Tons of stencils. Love them. It would be awesome if someone wanted to go in with you on them. Let's be honest...you aren't doing the same stencil all over your house. So share them or you can always make your own. Click right here and you can see how she made her own. Well worth the time. Mwah!
