He Thinks Me Crazy~

I was tired of the dreary white walls and the dreary white cafe curtains in my kitchen. How boring in our gray winter weather. So I decided to go to the other extreme. Extreme= Apricot Fris. Well my man thought I was nuts but Maya and I plugged along for an hour or so and we were quite happy with the results.

-Apricot Fris walls
-Japanese plates from Goodwill
-Cheery new cafe curtains
-Origami mobile


News flash: My man now wants to paint the rest of the kitchen. Colors of choice you ask? ORANGE and KEY LIME PIE green. Yep, that's what he said. We'll see.

I like the color you did! I've been desperate to paint every room in the house at least on the main floor but haven't done it yet.

dude! LOVE THE ORANGE! and did you make the curtains?

i need to do something with the windows in our bedroom (hi! lived in my house for 8 years, no curtains in the bedroom!) and want to do something similiar but don't want the ringy things because i'm basicaly insane and i don't know what my point is but I LIKE YOUR CURTAINS TOO.

I am desperate to redo just about every room in our house but my latest bug is to buy a bright red/orange/yellow striped shower curtain to replace our current cute but fishy more kid friendly one and paint the bathroom a bright color rather than the current greyish purplish color and buy new bright colored (don't show dirt) towels! By the way, Norma... more posts... I need something to read besides CNN.
