Spicing The House Up - just a little....again........

I have been slacking on the blogging world this week...my bad - been very busy at work and then oh so tired when I get home! I had a relaxing lazy weekend around the house with the hubs and the pups and it was just lovely!!

Sitting at the house so much made me think of a few things I would like to do to spice things up but without costing a fortune. Sooooo, being the visual person I am - I made pictures!!! :)

There is a big empty wall in our kitchen and I have been wanting to paint it with the chalkboard paint since we moved in like this....
(with cuter silver letters that say eat in lower case, but this was the best I could find to give you (and the hubs) an idea of what I meant.

But then I loved the idea of doing a black and white picture wall with a framed chalkboard too.....


 For the den, I want a new entertainment system, new art and new lamps.....


but which lamps.....


Then the bedroom,  I want to move the bed to the center of the far wall to make it more symmetrical (symmetry is my friend) and add new lamps and a rug.....


but which one?!?!


So, all of these things are little and pretty easy things I can do one at a time - but will make it feel new again - I just can't seem to stop......

Sooooo, whaddya think? Any thoughts, suggestions, opinions are greatly appreciated! :)

Happy Hump Day Folks!!

i love the chalk board idea in the kitchen - but i love the simplicity of the first one.

i like option #2 for the den

and i'm a sucker for anything animal print - so i'm going to have to go with option #2 for the bedroom - LOVE those lamps - so cute!

Hey Sarah!

Wanted to let you know about the little contest we have right now on Ashley's Bride Guide where your readers, friends, family can vote for your blog as Nashville's Best Bridal Blog. Here are the details: http://bit.ly/bQmfIV

And for what it's worth - I love the framed chalkboard. Funnily enough, my kitchen is painted that same blue you have for the bedroom with one chalkboard wall for our grocery list and to-do's.
