I find myself (quite often) discontent with the placement of a chair, table, couch, rug, what have you.
I regularly change the color of furniture
Almost never does my husband, or anyone else besides me, know where to find anything because things literally get moved around on a daily basis.
I am a redecorate-aholic and these are my confessions….
First off, you may be asking, (since i have two small children to care for), where does she find the time to rearrange, paint and redecorate?
Well, truth be told, on days such as these I employ the dog to nanny, she keeps them clean and entertained.
Also, housework tends to fall by the wayside when momma is in the zone
I am a domestic artist, home is my pallet, and the process isn’t always pretty.
In fact, we use the term “living in squaller,” quite frequently around these parts
As for my unconventional style, I make no apologies. I like bulky expensive dog rugs, okay?
Yes, it is a trip hazard but the kids love to climb on it and it is so life-like!
(And yes, that is the curb- side dresser we rescued, it has been painted three times now)
I like dinner plates on the wall, to me, they are art. The end
AND I really like this ridiculous topiary I found at goodwill, not sure what shape it is attempting to be, but I like it, and the bird in the twigs, I like that too, and don’t worry animal lovers, it’s not (nor was it ever) real:)
The problem with rearranging/moving things so often are some of the causalites along the way, for example; Callum’s profile plate. I made one for both him and Hazel just before Christmas… then I knocked his down and watched it shatter to smithereens. RIP plate
Another recent casualty, my finger. It was nearly severed to the bone (overdramatized for entertainment purposes) by a falling star. Haha, but REALLY, that giant star fell off the wall mysteriously (although, I may have bumped it with a chair) and landed on my finger…just glad it was MY finger…And yes I bled through the band-aid, thrice! Yep, I am pretty hard core.
And did you notice my fancy manicure? I like to call them eggshell tips, totally IN this winter. And no need to rush to the salon and pay top dollar, just dip your fingers in a paint can. Whala! Quick and easy.
Do i enjoy having decorators ADD? no
Do i want my funiture to stay in one place long enough to at least leave imprints in the carpet? sure
Would I like to have pretty feminine hands as opposed to chapped, gashed, painted, man hands? yes
but the reality is that the next time i have to scoot the chair over to get a lego out from underneath i will probably end up rearranging/painting the whole living room…
thus starting this vicious cycle all over again
this is who i am
and these are my confessions…
