I’ve owned my home for 6 1/2 years now. When I first moved in, I’d bought everything brand new. It was so pretty, contemporary, and just as I liked it. I was also 25, and wasn’t really clear on what my style was.
Many moons later, I’m 32, and my style has completely changed.
I don’t want things new, neutral, and boring. I want them colorful, bright, and happy. Also, I don’t want my house to be like your grandma’s house (well not your grandma per se, but you know what I mean), where you go there for years and years of your life, and things are always the same. They never change. They stand still in time. Ya, I don’t want to be that old lady (yet).
So I’m on a mission to update things, and make them more my “current” style.
It’s fun. And it’s pretty cheap. Just keeping my eyes open, and going to the Long Beach Antique Market, I have some pretty good things coming my way!
Okay so I made that little flower arrangement up there to get some color poppin in my world. I’m obsessed. So easy, and super cute!
I bought a clear bowl vase from the dollar store (which I actually have a bunch of these on hand to plant succulents in, and give as gifts). Then I bought some Martha Stewart crafty paint at Michaels, and a sponge applicator. Filled the INSIDE of the vase with paint. And voila!! Pretty fun new vase! I got my inspiration from this pin I found on Pinterest.
You should paint some glasses or vases. Easy way to throw a specific color in your mix! Yay good times on a Saturday night (that’s what I did on Saturday night, painted a vase). It was lovely.
