Seriously? I'm writing this thinking of the 8 million things I have to do to prepare for the Holidays and am wondering what life would be like if I had the time to make all the fun ideas I come across.
I think these cute place cards would be fun for a Holiday dinner (read the how-to here). Maybe you can cut out a star or Christmas tree...but who has the time to pull out the exacto for a place card??! Food needs to be cooked!
These are pretty right? I would love to open my closet to all this color! All my boring black clothes would be a great backdrop. But I have a zillion hangers, who doesn't? So who has this kind of time on their hands?!?! How-to here.
Annnnnnd then there's yarn. I can wind it around something but I cannot crochet or knit. Add the time to learn to crochet or knit and it really is at the bottom of my "projects to attempt" list.
Sigh. Ever complete a project and then think "Alright. Mission accomplished. Next project." only to find yourself staring at said project months later and pondering changes? That's what's going on here. I tend to make lemonade out of lemons due to financial reasons but frankly I'm sick of it. We left off here in the Living Room.
Minor updates have occurred in this room (a coffee table and black shades on the sconces) but I''ll share the thrilling [sarcasm] changes later.
Buuuuuut this room was based on accepting the fireplace as is and just painting and living with it. Then I came across this pin:
I want this. The fireplace that is and I will admit a small obsession with Calacatta and Carrera marble.
Here is a little mock up:
Maybe the chevron changes to stripes. Maybe I pick another wall color but the focal point is the fireplace and wouldn't it look GOOD! It's my style. I'm not a big fan of traditional unless it looks cool with contemporary (sorry gold couch). I'll have a future post about my quest for armed sconces.
Assuming you have some time on your hands for a little DIY photographers (eyes are rolling, no?) or anyone else who wants to give a cool gift for the Holidays, this yummy project will personalize and impress your good clients and/or friends.
