We’ve been in Utah almost one whole year (!) this week + I’m feeling like it’s about time to tie up loose ends in the decorating department. Here’s how things are looking, via Instagram photos:
Refrigerator door. Includes: a typewritten list of bills to pay each month; You + Me print that I whipped together last night; silhouette of California; a handwritten to-do list; a printable from Eat, Drink, Chic; and my favorite of all, a hall pass that I wrote for John when we were seniors in high school (I worked the switchboard and had access to all the passes, so I would send for John, who was a TA that period, to come up to the office. And of course I would write embarrassing things on all his passes, like “need to get your medication.” Oh we were such bad kids! ha!).
Living Room Wall. I originally painted these three canvases all the same teal color + then started to draw flowers atop them with a gold paint pen. Turns out, I kind of hated it. So I decided to repaint them all, in a different color, but then I ran out of paint so I added a bunch of different colors. Long story short: I thought they were hideous until I got them on the wall and now I love them! Happy accident!
Mantle. I love that decorating my mantle is so non-committal, unlike putting holes in the wall and then changing my mind about the placement of said holes (which I am excellent at!). Includes: “Sunshine” print that I made last night; mercury glass candle holders from Target; mirrors from Target; plant from Lowes. Sidenote: I’m 24 years old and I’ve never been the sole caretaker of a plant before! I’m a little worried about it, but when I was shopping the plant aisles yesterday, I thought to myself, I could really get into this! Plants are fun! We’ll see how it goes…
Guest Bathroom. Includes: Another plant! Yay!; mercury glass candle holder from Target; mini vase from Target; glass plate from DI.
Dresser. Includes: Frames from DI; mirror from the Goodwill; blue bowl from Anthro; silver tray from the Goodwill; white cake stand from Target; blue vase from DI; dresser made by my grandpa.
My mom is coming to visit in two weeks and I can’t wait to show her everything. It’s going to look A LOT different than when she and the rest of my family helped move us in last summer. Can’t wait!
