Much has happened since the last time we chatted. I've actually picked a paint color and painted a room....well a rather long accent wall actually. (Which is kind of a big deal-- considering how indecisive I can be with paint color.)
About 3 months ago I made a sketch of what I wanted the dining room to "do" color-wise. I wanted blue, oranges, reds, and browns. I think I finally made that happen! This still a work in progress though.
The new color on the walls is Behr: Peacock blue.
Right now, I'm holding/borrowing this orange vintage shelving unit for a friend. Apparently, it used to have drawers, but I think this is a much cool way to use this unit. It may house my growing mug obsession collection for the time being. You may also see a few pieces that look familiar, like the recently thrifted Mid century modern valet chair and the wall ornament/tray.
Also not pictured are the new yellow curtains and curtain rod that I purchased from Goodwill. For those of you who don't know, cute curtain rods can be sooo expensive! Luckily, the one I found at Goodwill was $6 and had those curtain clips so you don't have to go through the whole "string-the-curtain activity," which is almost as fun as the "fold-the-fitted-sheet activity."
Another recent decorative purchase was this brand-new shower curtain (with hooks from GW). I love stripes and other linear patterns that are black and white, so I had to buy this $4 shower curtain from Value Village when I spotted it.
I'm looking forward to painting the bathroom soon. I know you can't see the whole curtain but, It's kind of beachy, but also ethnic print-y. What colors (or patterns) do you think would complement the black and white design that I started with?
