And then it happened. I was bit by the decorating bug. "Things must change," the little critter whispered. "Do this." and then "what about that?"
And before I know it I'm painting and modge podging, and the kids are finger-painting and doing block creations, side walk chalk, and sculptures.
Remember my philosophies regarding my home? "It doesn't have to be perfect to be Beautiful" (from the Nester, of course,) and "Why NOT?" Anything is fair game if I enjoy it. As long as it makes me smile (and my husband can live with it,) then it passes the test. What freedom and fun!!
And here is the finished project. Something sweet, colorful, cheerful...
I modge podge my stuff on, and then spray it with this wonderful stuff:
Spray it on a nice day, so you can open the windows. This stuff is smelly!
Next I went after the kitchen/schoolroom door. The new color plus Nature Man's rocket picture made it perfect!
Then the sewing table at the end of the hall. It was plain white before. Wish I had thought to take "before photos."
Isn't this fun paper?! Ahhhh.... refreshing.
When I ran out of obvious stuff to glue paper to, I began rearranging, and bringing nature treasures in. I love these wild sticks. Mrs. Smiley and I gathered them on a hike the other day. (I still have yours, by the way.)
Some here, some there, some everywhere, even on the lights. :-) That is definitely a smile-inducer for me. I love nature, sunshine, and God's creation is certainly better than anything I could create to go up there!
So, what have you been up to?
Give me some more ideas! :-)
