This is what happens when you watch HGTV while you are putting labels on skeins of yarn!
You get the crazy idea to start making the house you have lived in for the last two years look like a home...and try to make it a home as gorgeous as those on HGTV and you figure that it will take about two hours...just like on HGTVSo you pull out all the furniture and start painting...
This project isn't done yet :P One wall is painted and the furniture is back in the room, the complimentary color still waiting to go on the walls.
But when it's done it's going to be GREAT! Came up with awesome space saving ideas for the bedroom storage (a california king, dressers, end tables and a closet barely big enough for a childs wardrobe in a room that is 10' x 15' at best!)
Since that project took a little longer than expected, I moved on to an instant gratification project....
Pictures on a wall!
Mind you, the only pictures up are on this hallway wall...but still when people stop by they notice and say, "WOW, kinda looks like a home now"
It only took two and a half years to do and inspiration from HGTV....
but now that the ball is rolling, we will see what I come up with next
(or what the bedroom looks like when I get around to finishing it)

I totally know what you mean, HGTV is addicting! I got the bright idea that I could tile & paint our hall bathroom two Thanksgivings ago. Totally ruined that holiday! ;)

Can't wait to see everything done. Oh and thanks for the picture idea. I need to do that to our blank hall wall.
