On this fabulous and oh-so-hot Friday I wanted to share a small update I’ve made around the house. Just a little somethin’ somethin’. Maybe I’ll call it “a little somethin’ somethin’ Friday“.
I have been really wanting to de-brown our bedroom. While I’m still loving our leather and nailhead trim bed, I’m kind of getting tired of the excess of brown. I still have the reupholstery of the chaise on my to do list but won’t even think about tackling it before this fall or winter. It’s way too scary for the fun summer time.
Anyways, I just took the frames of our silhouettes and painted them with mint spray paint. Actually the same as our bathroom mirror (click HERE). My 6 year old daughter was mad because she wanted teal. Sorry babygirl! Hey, maybe she was right though!?!?!
Here’s a photo of what the bedroom artwork looked like before:
And here are the frames after:
|Can you spot the kitty cat?|
|Ahhh, a little cat hair in the picture! Oh well it’s reality in my house!|
|Aren’t those large Hosta leaves in my thrifted vase awesome?|
Should I have gone with my babygirl’s suggestion? Teal instead of mint? I’m in love with the mixed color combo in the chair pillow fabric!
These photos where taken early in the morning when the sun shines into the bedroom. Aren’t they so different from the first one when it was a later time of the day? The colors don’t even look the same. I could have changed it in Photoshop but felt like showing you the huge difference.
My camera is still driving me nuts with the blurriness and graininess. Thanks again babygirl for running over the tripod while the camera was on it!
One more thing. Do you want to see the reality of what I do for my cats?
And all you animal haters just turn your head, uhm ok?
My rolly-polly 17 year old little Manx named Heidi was never a jumper due to the lack of having a tail and since she’s gotten up there in age, she isn’t doing much anymore besides snore and wobble.
I love her though (she is my first baby) and she is also my biggest nighttime snuggler. We have a total routine!
So what did I do since she can’t jump up on the bed at all anymore?
Well, I built her a ramp and this is what my bedroom usually looks like:
Keeping it real folks, keeping it real, I tell ya! And there she is lying on the bed because she loves the ramp which is hooked into the bed frame with some bent ikea strips.
Anything not so pretty that you have done for your pets lately? Please do tell because I don’t want to feel like the only cuckoo pet lady around! Well y’all know I’m cuckoo that’s no secret and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way 😉
Talk to you on Monday my friends and stay cool if you live on the East Coast.
