new curtains

I loved my chevron curtains in my dining room...


but recently i have been thinking that the chevron is a little too much in this room. i want to tame it the room down a little. Then I found these curtain panels on clearance at Target last weekend.







The color matches perfectly in this space...only problem is the blinds.  they are too yellow-ish or something.
Im not sure if i want to go white or dark brown...I used the colortopia website to sketch in both color options...

BROWN BLINDS....


WHITE BLINDS...


i like both but i am leaning towards the dark brown.  i think it will flow better with the rest of the room...



Now i just have to find some blinds i like.  do i go roman shades, bamboo shade, wooden blinds????
Hopefully Ill be back on Monday with an answer!

house of chaos and junk....

Our house is currently in a state of transition...aka a mess.  We have about a billion and one projects happening right now.

this is what LAs room currently looks like.


we are preparing her room and our room for the big switcheroo...We primed over all the existing paint upstairs all weekend...I even put her to work...


Our bedroom has gone from this...


to this

sexy huh?

that carpet in our room is getting the boot shortly and we are laying hard wood down. but the next step is to paint both rooms.  Im painting them both the same grey that i have throughout the rest of the house.  Behr Ashes.


Its nice, its neutral and its a nice pallet to decorate around.  Im also toying with the idea of painting our sleigh bed in our bedroom. and the dresser.  why not?


Here is my color inspiration for the girls room...

Its light, its bright, its fun.  Im debating weather i want to bring back the pompoms from LAs nursery to put over the newbies crib...

BTW- newbies crib is white...
so anyway...that is where we are with the upstairs...a mess.

Downstairs...the living room fireplace area is looking like this...



pretty huh?
We ripped out the existing mantle and wire coverings and are planning to re-build  along with a built-in shelf next to it.  I say we but we all know who is doing all the work...


Here are the plans Mr H drew up...

keepin it real with Angelina Ballerina on the TV...
We are going to build a new mantle and stain it dark, as well as frame in the fireplace along the side.  we are going to put up molding behind the tv and also build a built in off to the side.  we will also add new casing around the door and the little window to match all the other molding and casing in the house.  i can not wait.

in the kitchen...Im hoping to get these lower cabinets sanded and painted sooner rather than later...



Im going dark grey. why not?  I still have a lot I want to do in the kitchen...like counter tops...I really want butcher block counters...and a back splash...Im still liking white subway tiles.  But Ill let Mr H take a break before all that..maybe

Hopefully Ill be back soon with some after pics!
