After the success of the recent bathroom project I set my sights on the rest of the house. What would happen if I tackled a few rooms a month and touched up paint, hung new art, and removed all the clutter? I think our house – and our family – would be transformed.
So last week I dove in. I made a list of what needed doing in each space and prioritized the rooms that I wanted completed first. We had leftover paint from our initial painting of the house four years ago, so while the kids were on a play date I put a fresh coat of paint up in the playroom. (A previous playroom arrangement is here.) I removed the playstands and downsized everything from play dishes to costumes and made some new "art" out of a few favorite fabrics glued into embroidery hoops.
The result is so lovely that I could sleep on the floor in here. (Incidentally I didn't realize that the fabric hoops matched the globes until I photographed them this morning. I chose fabrics that were favorites and weren't too grown up and by chance it was a perfect match.) What do you think?
Hooray for a fresh new space as we roll into a fresh new year. Happy 2011 to all!
