I'm back! I spent last week working on tons of projects and decided that the blog needed to take the backseat to everything else we had going on. It was a good decision on my part.
I managed to finally finish painting the media center.
I rearranged the playroom and moved/reworked the gallery wall.
I rearranged the master bedroom. I will eventually show you this room.
I got rid of a TON of furniture that we were not using.
I picked out a new loveseat for the den. It hasn't been purchased yet, I still need a little more in the funds department, but I'm working on Craigslisting a few other items.
I finished Henry's birthday gift....just in time.
I hung stuff over the piano.
Let's talk about the piano. You can take a look at some of my inspiration here if you need a refresher.
I really didn't know what I wanted. I just didn't want it to look cluttered and didn't want it completely bare. How is that for vision?
Our ceilings are not very high, and there is a lot of stuff in this room. I opted to not use a mirror because I have a mirror on the wall across from it over the couch. I am also planning to hang a huge canvas print of the boys directly across from it over the record player. I was in Target last week shopping for new knobs for the media center, and found 2 white frames with mats for $5 each. That pretty much sealed the deal. They only had 2 or I would have bought more and done something more vertical, but I am happy with this. The frame in the middle is the gold frame that was in the before picture. I just sprayed it white. I was very hesitant to do so, but the gold was starting to flake, so I went with it. I'm sure it will get tweaked, but for now this is good. The prints are free printables from here. I just printed them on my printer and stuck them in the frames real quick. I'm sure they will change, but we were having a party at our house and I just needed it to look finished without having to give it much thought.
I am happy that it feels finished, and I only spent $10. Win.
