I'm Deliminized.....

Is that a word?
Okay, here's the problem. We are selling our lake home.  Very close to making a deal.
We are also hoping to sell the furniture with it....with the exception of a few valuable pieces of art.
(not mine, hehe) I'll sell that to anyone!!!
I will tell you that as an ex designer, most designers have a miserable time doing work on their own home.
Let's see, I have lived here in the condo for 4 months now and seriously y'all the second bedroom looks like K-rap.
I haven't done a thing to it.  Not even put up drapes.  We have had a sheet, yes, a sheet over the window.  The maid (in her sweetest quest to make the room look better ties it in a knot in the middle!)
Which does help....somewhat.
So,,,,,,I also have a husband who thinks he's a designer.  Any of you out there have that problem?
He actually has some pretty good ideas, and he holds the checkbook, so I kind of have to work around HIS budget.  Which is NOT much (or much fun)
So, this is what I finally came up with.
looks like a hotel huh?  I'm going to change that comforter to a lighter grey and make shams.
Then I'm going to paint the room a really creamy greyish cream color.  We are also going to put another queen bed in there for more sleeping.  One piece of advice I used to always give my clients is to not comprimise the look of a room in order to keep something that 1) you're too attached to, or 2) you made a bad decision (like this comforter. And it's really not old enough to ditch)
but wait!!! after I wrote this blog, I came up with an idea,,,,so this is an edit
I reversed the comforter and the pillows, and, I'll be making 3 large shams to tie all the colors together. Still not completely happy, but better than it was, that's fer sure
I'm also going to purchase these to go at the end of the bed (if they match)
cute huh? are some of my ideas:
not with the blue of course.  I'm going to keep the russet color
 I love the top throw for the end of the bed
 and I may have to have these shams
 love this!!!  I want two of those poof ottomans for the end of the bed.

 see that throw at the end???? It was a BEAUTIFUL gift from Houston.
In my Ka-rispiness (a word Callen and Harper came up with), I tripped over it along with a few more thows that were in the floor resulting in this:
youch.  Broke big toe in two places and am now wearing a lovely boot.
Looks great with my gold manolos huh

Okay, we are also selling this armoire that we don't have room for.  It is a multi use armoire.  Either a desk or TV holder.  We paid 1,250.00 for it and are selling it for 300.00 perfect condition. Oh, doors retract.  Only catch?   You have to pick it up in Buckhead (Atlanta)
and....I wanted you to see what I would do with it, if I was going to keep it....
Now, I have to show you Evers....Watching the kindel fire that "W" and I gave her for Christmas wearing an Ole Miss football hat!
then Lil B making use of another present!!! Oh be still my heart!!!!
 have a wonderful day y'all!
