DIY Project: Paint it blue, call it new!

So, finally!!!  We’ve officially started the DIY (or have someone else do it, if you’re a cheater like me) projects at home.  It took awhile to decide on a color for the guest room, but I ran over to Home Depot and had the guy mix up something extra special for me.  Looks like it’s time to decorate the wall with some art, or maybe even some vinyl decals.  Stay tuned for updates!

Here it is…

Voila!

Hooray! Our DIY Project Begins…

After flipping through dozens of wallpaper sample books, we’ve finally decided on something for our master bedroom.  The color theme will be: purple, black, silver, and white.  I’ve also included some pieces that we may incorporate, to transform our space into a stylish bedroom.  Total budget:  $1000

New bed, new walls!

With all the traveling and unexpected moments in life, we never found the time to really sit down to add color to our home. We finally decided to order a new bed, so now it’s time to spruce up our boring white walls.

Option 1: Traditional paint
Option 2: Wallpaper!

We’re leaning more towards option 2, since there are so many modern patterns available.  Gonna have to take a field trip over to look at some swatches.  I found this one online, but it totally doesn’t go with our furniture.
