Settling In


It’s official, I have the home improvement bug, pinteresting my face off, wandering the halls of hardware stores with a measuring tape, stalking craigslist, and dreaming of power tools. Bouncing from one rental house to the next has never made making a house a home easy. It always seemed that the minute I started to settle in we would move. We’ve been in the house we’re in now for almost 3 years, and just confirmed we’ll be staying another year. So I’m not holding back anymore.

I tore the ugly bathroom wallpaper off and painted when we first moved in, there was no way I could live with a stars and moon border… no way. Then this weekend I finally changed out some of those awful ceiling boobs and replaced them with simple porcelain lampholders spray painted in high gloss black with some clear bulbs. What’s next? A kitchen workspace, dining room table, new rugs, paint the bedroom?

    Ceiling boobs!!!!!!! I loathe those and have always felt the exact same way, yet, when I bring it up, people look at me like I’m crazy. Thank you, thank you, thank you for validating my concern.

    Hahahaha, ceiling boobs. The next friends house I go to with the monstrosities I’m going to say, ‘Hey, nice ceiling boobs…’ and just start to cackle straight away. Good luck with the re-decorating!
