(Isn't that how all great stories begin?)
We bought our house in the city.
It had decor stuck in the 80's. I was determined to make it ours.
So I started changing things up - painting, rewallpapering, etc.
To keep up with paint samples and all, I got this notebook, added paper to it and started a Home Decor book.
Later I got a black folder, added black construction paper and again used it to hold paint chips and samples.
They were simple at best, plain at the worse but the best I could come up with those many years ago.
Today, there's a new book on the horizon. This one from KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood.
It has worksheets.
It has projects and how to's along with loads of tips
And pockets for samples...everything you need to decorate your home and help make it uniquely yours.
I sure wish it had been available all those years ago.
But I'm using it now for the farmhouse. Putting in paint colors
measuring my rooms and playing with furniture layouts
putting samples in the inside pockets
And playing with patterns and fabric samples.
It's great fun and so easy. Makes me feel like a design rock star.
