I can’t believe how long it has been since I have posted on this blog! I had a lot of fun decorating our house for the holidays for the first time and had great intentions of sharing photos and ideas. But, it just didn’t happen!
I have posted a bit on my other blog, mypursuitofpeak, so check that out if you have time. I guess I have just been little more focused on getting back into a workout routine, which is probably a good thing after all those holiday sweets and delicious meals.
Now I am starting to think about house projects again… I would really like to finish my boy’s room, especially since the only thing that needs to be done is to hang a ceiling light (that I purchased back in July)! I hadn’t had it hung yet because it requires an electrician. There is no current ceiling light, so we will have to have it installed. I have heard that it only costs a couple hundred dollars, but I wanted to get our whole list together for an electrician before I have one come do the work. I can’t wait to get his light up because I love it. It is a barn light from Menard’s. I think it’s fun to find something in a different section of a store or a different store other than the section/store specific to the room you are decorating. For example, using an outdoor light in a bedroom or finding something at a teen specific store for a child’s room.
On the list is also a ceiling light for my girl’s room. This one took me a while longer to figure out. I just couldn’t find the right light for her room. The style in her room
is vintage, and I was originally thinking to do a chandelier in there. But, I also like mixing styles, so I ended up finding a pendant at PB Teen. As I mentioned before, I like looking places other than age/style specific departments/stores because you just might come across the right thing. My daughter is 4, but I have found some very cute options for her at PB Teen. The flower pop pendant came the other day, so it’s time to find an electrician!
I will post pictures of their rooms once they are finished…
