There's that dresser in Grace's room, from our dear friends Nancy and Gene, that needs sanded and painted white.
And if I'm going to paint the dresser I probably should repaint her room pale pink. And if I'm going to paint her room I should try my hand at installing some crisp white bead board to really make the room POP.
Then there's the dresser that's in Christian's room that I want to paint dark blue and then distress it.
I should mention that this particular dresser is the first piece of furniture Sandy and I bought together. We found it at a little second hand store in a neighboring town for $50.00. I've been meaning to paint it for the last 14 years.
To add to my shopping/decorating debacle I had to go and read Traditional Home's Holiday issue. Seriously, why am I torturing myself?

I rolled across this article and now I can barely contain myself from heading out to Hancock's and loading up on glorious amounts of ribbon.
Traditional Home 2010 Holiday issue.Just image how I could jazz these babies up with some turquoise and jewel toned green ribbon. Hummm...it is only 4:15, I could head over to Hancock's.
Note the hideous white and gray tile in our bathroom. Hummm...we could retile the bathroom.
Alas, I should not, so I will decorate my mantel with what I have on hand.
We put away all of our Christmas decorations, except my favorite Costco trees. I realize they don't really go with my grass vases, yet I don't care, because I really like them. I plan to keep them out until January 30th, and then they will be tucked away in the Christmas vault (garage rafters).
These candle stands were blah by themselves, so I added some candle rings that I picked up at Micheal's for 75% off. (No, I didn't go out today, or I would have grabbed some ribbon, too.) I used my favorite scarf as an accessory to add another pop of color. Fun, easy and free- just the way Sandy likes me to decorate.
