As you can imagine, I have a lot of ridiculous ideas planned for the house that I have not yet told Chris, he's in for a treat! I think for the most part, he might just give up and let me do what I want... but we'll see how that goes. So far, every time we talk about a paint color, he just says that he wants to paint everything lime green.... every room in the house... LIME GREEN. Needless to say, we're not putting him in charge of the planning, even though I'm sure he's just joking in order to get a rise out of me.
Since I don't have any pictures to show yet, I decided to snag one from the online listing to share with you all. Here is part of the dining room and kitchen:
Since we have been playing the waiting game for a while, I've been occupying my spare time with getting lost in PinHoles... on Pinterest, that is. I have a "House!" Board which has a section for each room of the house, plus the outside, plus other random things I wanted to save. I'd like to think that we can update the house on a very tight or non-existent budget, so Pinterest has been really helpful for finding blog posts about how others DIY'd stuff in their own homes. To avoid having to move more things, we haven't purchased any additional furniture yet to replace some of our older crappy stuff (mainly just our sofa set). I did purchase the De La Luna fabric bundle by Tula Pink though because it is the most beautiful set ever and I wasn't about to miss one of her spooky designs! I haven't decided what to make with everything yet, but we will definitely need some throw pillows for every room in the house. If you're not familiar with it, here's a peek:
My order arrives tomorrow and I can't wait to lay it out and inspect every inch of the designs to view all the beautiful details hidden within them. I wasn't able to just choose one colorway, so I ended up purchasing the full line - sure, I don't reallllllllllllly have the space to store any more fabric, but I needed it... for science!
Speaking of storage, my GoFundMe Campaign is off to a really great start and I am floored that anyone donated anything at all - I've collected $140 so far! For those of you who have donated and/or shared, thank you SOOOO much! It may take me a while to gather all the funds for the WorkBox, but...
That's all I have to share for now, if you would like to follow me on Pinterest or just check out my Boards, you can do so here: https://www.pinterest.com/chelpanda
