Over Taking My Home...
I have lived in my home for what seems like forever now. Funny thing is I don't think I am fully unpacked yet. I have let what ever style the previous owner had take over what I wanted my home to feel like. With scattered pictures, ugly paint and not cohesiveness at all, I finally did it. I took my home back!!
A while back I was able to paint almost every wall in my home. I was able to get rid of a really bad green. I knew what my color scheme through out my house would be, it was just a matter of finding the right colors. This took a while. But it happened. We washed down the walls and painted everything with a fresh coat of paint.
The things that are left for this side of the living room are framed hand prints of the kids to go above the quilt and maybe a homemade clock in between the two sets of family photos. After that the simple part of making more throw pillows for my sectional and fixing the foot stool that isn't pictured.
Of course our Christmas decor wont be up for much longer but makes it even more family friendly I think. Now there are a few things being added to this side as well. We will be painting the door and door frame red and framing out all the door ways with red trim. After that we will be done. It feels like home now. I feel like I can have people in my home now. Part of being a good homemaker is being hospitable. Feels great having my home !
