As I have mentioned before, I seem to be in quite the decorating mode this fall. I just had this urge to make things look nice. Nicer. We don’t live in a museum. We live in our house and our house looks lived in. Especially considering we share it with two large dogs and 3 cats. So keeping things looking nice is typically a challenge. And I can only go so far with this before the cats turn everything into something they will throw up later.
But I will try anyway. Now, I finished the coffee table a couple of weeks ago and we have done a GREAT job of keeping the table free of crap. My theory (to be tested) is that if it looks like, we won’t pile crap on it. Optimistic of me probably, but worth a try.
The Living Room and Dining Room are mostly done. Although I am still not happy with the top of the media cabinets. Next is the kitchen table. I will be hitting up Home Goods tomorrow for some sort of tablecloth and centerpiece type thing. We NEVER use our kitchen table (or the dining room table for that matter) so keeping it clear will be a big test.
Now that I think about it, should I decorate the tray tables scattered around the living room, where we actually eat? Probably not.
I have decided to split this decorating frenzy into 3 seasons: autumn, winter and spring/summer and will store them accordingly. I will sort through what I already have as each season arrives and purge anything that is not worth keeping. Each season, I will try to repurpose things, like using the candle holders but changing out the candles, etc.
Wow. This makes me feel like an adult. This and the fact that I have a spice cabinet.
