Every now and then I decide I’m ready for a few new things, not necessarily brand new but at least new to me or a reorganisation of what I have that can be changed up and moved from one room to another.
I’ve repainted my entry hall, it’s pretty short but fiddley, it took ages. It has our entry door, 2 bedroom doors, double cupboard doors and an archway to tape off and paint around. This one hallway took almost as long to paint as the family/dining room area, BUT as unhappy as I am with my painting capabilities it does look cleaner and fresher and ties in with the other rooms.
So now that I have blank walls I’m not sure I wish to put up the pictures, photos and mirror that used to hang on my walls it’s like looking at them with new eyes a blank canvas.
I quite often change things around in my house going from room to room my lot were never surprised when they came home from work or school and things were not where they were when they left that morning being curtains, couches, chairs and tables.
My problem is, a) I’d like new colours but I have to decide on new colours or adding or subtracting to what I have, b) will I get new couch cushions and if so do I get them before I get new or different wall pictures, c) can I reuse the frames I have and if so what to fill them with general scenery or …. photos of nature that I’ve taken or abstract or d), do I need new or more indoor plants, e) maybe a floor rug, f) do I have to put anything up as I’m liking my bare walls?
Thank heavens I’ve never had to build a new house I would never know where to start!
I think I’ll ponder things for a little bit and see what takes my fancy.
Do you get bored with your house interior and how do you change things up or do you have the collections and colours from decades ago?
Oh yes Kathy, just the same. I’m very dissatisfied that we live in such a small place now that I have no where to move things to. Just no choices as to position. I’ve had the lounge room furniture move around each wall I’m sure! Short of selling everything and starting again I’m stuck. I don’t have room for sofa cushions and we e already painted the walls so I’ll just put up with it. I’m sort of trying to find a flat spot to put a plant these days.
The more I think about it the more of a dilemma I seem to have lol
