Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Our readers are seriously amazing! You guys have helped me out with two major design decisions in the past few weeks. I promise I'll update you about the family room wall stenciling soon, but Mr. Berkus has been keeping me away from that project. However, even being busy and sick, couldn't keep me away from my Granny Frames Gallery!
You all had so many awesome ideas and gave me great inspiration! I particularly loved this picture that Cori shared with me on Facebook. The colors of those spools are pretty spot on for the colors in the room now!
Here's the comment that did it for me though...
Tracie, who blogs over at Cleverly Inspired, gave me a total "Ah-ha" moment! About a year and a half ago, when I was initially planning out my dining room, I fell completely IN LOVE with this buffet that I found on Google images (remember life before Pinterest??) I tracked down the source and found an adorable blog called The Way We Are.
I love this more than I can even tell you! But, the hubs was sorta feeling like we'd be having St. Patrick's Day every day, so I went a different direction and began my love affair with yellow.
Now, thanks to Tracie's comment I realize that I don't have to let go of the green completely. In fact, the vases I already have in the room marry the two quite nicely!
I was a little unsure about the color of this spray paint since the lid is a wee bit bright, but gave it a try...
I know some people are all into gold right now (and I'm liking it too), but for this room I'm going green!
Holy Moly- I'm in love!
Okay, since I'm slowly but surely learning life lessons, I'm actually not going to rush and hang these while they're still dripping wet! I actually think I might be distressing the green a bit with some stain as well. I hope to have the whole project completed by Saturday. So look for a final reveal on Monday!
Now, since we mentioned our shopping excursion last night on Facebook, we thought we'd give you a sneak peek of what we're thinking of wearing. Of course we both got two options, and we'll make a game-time decision.
Jess' Outfit Choices...
The hangers aren't doing the outfits justice, but they look super cute on!
Jess is leaning towards the dark blue shirt- it's my fav!
Monica's Outfit Choices
This one is the one I'm leaning towards, but it's hard to see in pics. It's like sheer knit-lacy combo... It surprised me that I liked it on. I'm kinda Plain Jane.
This is my safe option. I love the birds and can live with the flowers.
We'll let you know what we decided and of course we'll take tons of pics to keep you updated on our final NYC taping. Thanks again for all of your input with the Granny Frames!
P.S. If you don't follow us on Facebook, I'm pretty sure you should! :) We'll update lots of fun Nate "inside info" there tomorrow! Go HERE to like RHBC!
