I'm sure I'll be making our house into a home for the rest of my life. Constantly tweaking things here and there, which makes decorating fun! Here are some of my recent "tweaks."

Before
Don't you think curtains really pull a room together? I tend to think the same thing about rugs... My only regret is not hanging the curtains closer to the ceiling. High ceilings are in right now and this is any easy way to make them appear even taller. Poor Matt is not going to be happy... My Aunt says curtains are to a window like a frame is to a picture. ;)
I replaced our college diplomas with this print. M and I both were drawn to it when we saw it. Maybe because we both love our country?
Before our microwave didn't quite fill the space provided for it. Tacky and annoying.
 
Who knew there was a company that makes inserts just for this purpose?

I bought the runner on etsy and like that it brings more fun into the room. I don't know if I will ever get off the chevron trend. I love it!

That's all for now. There are a few other projects I am working on and when I finish I will have to show you all! Today I am getting a massage while my mom watches Blair for an hour. I can not wait! Have a great Wednesday!

  1. Love that map print! And I gave throw pillows that match your runner, now I'm thinking I should get a runner too since our table is in the same room (grea room)
