After a little paint, I have a new look to the built-in shelves in my apartment. Those shelves have been driving me crazy for quite some time. I feel much better about them with the new color. Although, I still have a ways to go on "decorating" the shelves. Creating a pretty bookshelf is not easy! I like them much better already though.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Happy Tuesday!
How on earth have I missed Secrets from a Stylist for so long?!?!?! I followed Emily Henderson on DesignStar and loved her. Now that I don't have cable, I couldn't keep up with her new TV show. I recently figured out you could watch the episodes at HGTV.com and I have been watching Secrets from a Stylist non-stop. I am pretty much obsessed with Emily Henderson and her amazing talent. I love how the rooms she designs are never fussy and that there is always a mid-century piece thrown in. I also really enjoy Emily Henderson as a host. She has a very relaxed approach to decorating and you can tell she really loves her job. Yep, it is pretty much my new favorite show.
A couple months ago, the master bathroom at my Dad's house flooded. Due to the water damage, the bathroom now needs refinishing. My Dad (not having a clue about design) asked me to help him pick out the materials for the project. Today, we went to the bath and tile store and made all the selections. I had the BEST time choosing all the little details. My dad pretty much let me have free reign. I chose the tile, grout color, flooring, etc. It was exhilarating being able to create an entirely new look for the bathroom. It definitely opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that are available as a homeowner.
One day I would love to buy an older home and renovate it. Maybe do some real DIY projects like paint the kitchen cabinets, hang up wallpaper, put down new flooring, and maybe even some landscaping.
I guess I better start saving my pennies....
