House Projects.

This weekend seemed to fly by. I had a chance Saturday to clean out our 3rd bedroom. It has been a catch all for almost two years. I've been waiting for the weather to warm up so that I could move some large items into our basement and make this room into a functional guest room. It will eventually become a nursery but until then I want to be able to have the door open. So, I now have a bed set up and a night stand with a lamp. I won't do anything to this room until I am pregnant and know what the baby will be. I only want to decorate it once.  I've FINALLY figured out my living room!!! YIPPEE!!! WOOHOO!!! I'm so excited too! Okay, it is a  BIG joke at our house that I've painted the living room twice and the kitchen three times in less than two years. Well, this is about to become three and four times. HA!! I've decided to go ahead and paint the living room and kitchen a color that I should have done all along, Jekyll Crane Cottage Yellow. It's a buttery creamy neutral yellow. Right now my two rooms are Dijon by Benjamin Moore, and for some reason during certain times of the day it has an orange tint to it and it drives me crazy! I can't stand it! I've seen Jekyll Crane Cottage Yellow in two of my friends homes and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It goes great with all the colors I LOVE! If you saw my last post you saw my inspiration for the three rooms I am working on at the moment. This color will work great with them. My taste in this house has been hard for me to figure out. I see soooo many things that I LOVE and so it makes it so hard for me to decide on something. But I ALWAYS go back to my cottage style decor. I LOVE it more than anything.  I am going to be moving my toile living room curtains into my kitchen and selling the ones in my kitchen.  I have black and cream buffalo check fabric on my kitchen chairs and I think that will work great with the toile. I am planning on having panels made for the living room out of red and white buffalo check fabric. I will be painting my kitchen cabinets a nice creamy white this summer and adding some toile valances or balloon shades to my sink window and door window. I want to add in pops of red and a little green throughout the kitchen too. Anyone else have any projects going on right now?
