Decorating Procrastinating - LOVE this term!
As you know, I have joined the 30 Day Room Makeover Challenge to try and combat the dreaded DECORATING PROCRASTINATING. You know what this is - you have a project you need to do but you just don't want to even think about let alone DO it.
The above photo is the vent and lighting over the stove and I added corners, bead board and decorative molding to fancy it up a bit. I had to repaint the old black and white harlequin blue grey and white to match the new color scheme. As you can see, all I have to do is add the corner molding around the bottom, paint it, and paint the recessed lighting ring. If I put my mind to it, it would take the the better part of about 2 hours. Alas, here it sits. Unfinished and mocking me every time I walk into the kitchen.
Instead, I have been doing fun stuff. Summer stuff. Here I am with Mary Poppins carpet bag from the film. WAIT, what??? Yep - I was tickled to death to see this in person being the Disneyphile that I am. It was one of the exhibits in the Museum of Science and Industry's exhibit, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives. It was a spectacular day! Much more fun than emptying a mammoth amount of Christmas decorations, WDW souvenirs and Halloween stuff out of the guest bedroom. Clutter galore.
I first saw the term in late July on Serena's blog Thrift Diving. She is the blogger hosting the 30 day challenge in which you have to finish one space by August 31! I chose the dreaded guest bedroom and I am so excited to finish it - I just don't want to do the work. LOL
Here are the before and current pictures of my guest bedroom makeover....
That is all I have done and it is AUGUST 10TH!!!!!!! Like we are in double digits. And, yet, this morning I went to mass at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. One of my most favorite places in the world.
Maybe I will have to stop at the Grotto one more time and pray for motivation. Enjoy your Sunday!
