In all of the places we’ve lived and move over 7 years together, I’ve never been very good at decorating. Go figure.
Currently, I have a total of four deorations hanging in my living room, making it look bare. I really want to start fresh at the new place and maybe do a photo-wall or something. I have tens of thousands of photos of Lil, J but no recent ones printed and none hanging at all.
I know, it’s a disgrace.
This is one I’m thinking of blowing up and making a sequence of three similar black/white photos of her.
I need to get family photos done so I have some of those to choose from, but I’m waiting for my photographer to stop being pregnant.
Then, I need to go through my photos, and print my favorites to hang.
I was thinking of getting a bunch of thrifted frames and spray painting them all a similar color scheme. I don’t have a livingroom color scheme now ap I’m planning to start fresh.
In fact, is it a good idea to donate the few random decorations I have so I 1. Don’t have to move them and 2. Don’t feel obligated to use them in my new place?
I’m not exactly a hoarder but I do get a slight anxiety about getting rid of something. I worry I’ll end up needing it tomorrow. The thing that helps is knowing its going to someone who needs it.
Pinterest is a good resource but I don’t really know where to start.
We are going to get new (to us) couches and I’ll make curtains. Other than that I haven’t a clue how to get the home decorating bug and how to do it right.
Start fresh, or bring what I have to start (which isn’t much).
I’d love to hear your ideas!
Also, I have a cool nook area in the livingroom that I’d love to make pretty. What would you put there?
I hope to document my progress and with your help, pull something off that looks somewhat cute.
**Added** We are renting, so I’d prefer not to paint and have to re-paint back to white.**
