Decorating round 2

Tuesday, November 27, 2007
Since the holidays are approaching, I'm on a kick to get our apartment in shape. And by shape, I mean finally (yes!) painting. After asking a couple friends for their advice on colors, I've decided to steal the Sherwin Williams color, Blonde, from Michelle and paint the living room/dining room.

On Sunday,we even took a short trip over to Legacy Village to browse through Crate & Barrel to look at some furniture. We found two pieces we agreed on buying in the next month. I love everything about that store, except for the fact that I can't afford to outfit an entire room from there. But, I have found that it's a great place to grab ideas and concepts from and then look to IKEA or outlet stores to recreate the look. Right now, we are concentrating on getting a new TV so I can watch Grey's re-runs or reality TV because they studio execs still haven't come to terms with writers! (End this! Next fall we won't have any new shows!)

Anyway, our next step is painting the place Blonde and adding a new coffee table, media stand and TV.

Please feel free to send donations.

So, I guess we're painting the walls 'blonde' now? Thank goodness I read this tonight.
