Lies. All lies.
I know for 100% fact that I cannot carry a tune in a bucket. Anyone who's sat by me in church or heard me karaoke can attest to it as well.
Thankfully, I never ended up singing in said talent show. That would have been the end of my social life. I did, however, clog in a super puffy skirt to Alan Jackson. My costume looked something like this:
Now that I have a firm grasp on my own personal skills and talents, I know what I am good at and know what I suck at.
cleaning (my mother taught me well)
meeting new people
school (I'm such a nerd)
dancing (15+ years baby)
staying up late (Hello, 9:30pm!)
singing (please see above)
I am happy with these lists. I'm proud of what I can do and have accepted what I can't do. I still sing at the top of my lungs whenever the mood hits, and I still need to decorate this new house. Just because I don't have the 'creative eye' doesn't mean I should force my husband to live between blank walls.
Thats where you come in. Please, I mean PLEASE help this dummy decorate my house. Here is what you have to work with:
This is the front door. I have no clue what to put on the blank wall...maybe a 'frame wall'? Apparently, they are all the rage now.
Seriously, I need help!
The kitchen. It's huge.
This is looking from the kitchen into the living room.
Introducing: The Orange Rooms. I pray for the people who choose this paint color. How in the world am I suppose to work with a room the color of a burnt pumpkin?!
And not only do I have to work with ONE orange room, but I have to figure out with to do with TWO orange rooms! Seriously, I'm over my head here folks. What colors go with Jersey Shore Fake Tan Orange??!
Last, but not least, the master suite. Huge with lots of empty walls and windows. Also, please notice the ceilings. "They" painted in alternating blue and grey colors. How artsy. Not.
I don't have pictures of the guest bath or the laundry room, but they are blank and boring as well.
So there you have it folks. Our new house and my daunting task of making it a home. Pinterest has been my best friend lately and I've found some really great ideas, but I honestly have no idea where to start. So much to do!!
Any and all ideas are welcome!
