So as we wait to hear about the status of our hopeful future digs, I've been basically LIVING on Pinterest gathering ideas for the decor and blog hopping on people's blogs once I see something I like on Pinterest. Feel free to check out my Pinterest boards and follow me here: http://pinterest.com/madcapfrenzy/
Anyways, among getting ideas on what to do with some of my DIY projects I have planned, but am waiting on actually doing them till things are more concrete in home outcome, I came across this cool site called Olioboard. For those of us who LOVE Pinterest, it is just another step towards planning your dream rooms. It basically is a place to put together inspiration boards (similar to what most interior designers tend to do). It also can calculate out what it would cost to get everything on that board and a great way to see if certain things work together or not (you can also upload or add products from other sites to your own collections). Here are a few of my planning boards for some of the rooms I'd love to do.
My husband always laughs that my dream home is a rainbow room house. To be honest, maybe that is who I am- I love color and I always wanted (since I was little) to have each room a different color. I still need to put together a board for my "blue room"- spare bedroom I was thinking, and I'll be set on colors in the rainbow. haha
I also started looking at some cool things online/blog hopping and such, and came across The Real Housewives of Buck County blog. I remembered them being featured in our newspaper a while back, and for some reason just now got around to following them- I'm kinda slow on jumping on the bandwagon I guess, or just was so busy at the time, forgot. Better late then never I guess. Anyways, I'm enjoying going back and seeing all their redos. But there is a certain guest blog post about a bar cart redo here: that the conversation is very similar to what I had with my hubs about our bar cart. I still need to fix mine up (its sitting in our spare room till I get the proper tools to scrap and repaint it). I just got a kick out of the conversation over it, and chuckled to myself how close it was to the conversation over the phone (with sending a photo via text) to the hubs about it. lol
Another thing I came across was this cute tray redo over at A Place for Us blog. I think I'm going to have to make a tray I got from a yard sale down the street a while back into that lovely thing. lol
Ok, enough blog hopping, I need to actually get SOMETHING done this week. lol
