Decorate Your Apartment: An Update on My PROGRESS

Hi my dear friends!

You may remember, from this post, that I made it my goal to actually try some of the things I pin and read on blogs.  My goal in doing all this is to make our house feel more like a home.

I started with some Pinspiration:

You will see some similarities: neutral textures, ceiling-sweeping curtains, black curtain rods, glass lamps, large lamp shades…

What do you think?  So many pretty details, right?!

Next up is my original to-do list.  You will see that I have made quite a nice dent.   Check out the items I have knocked off my list, so far.  (Yay!)

-decide on picture frame layout to offset sliding door’s non-centered placement

-select pictures for frames

-glass base lamp and neutral shade

-neutral, textured curtains

-black curtain rod (round ends)

-price out couches (?)

-stencil for an accent wall

-select color for stencil

-hang curtains (high and wide)

-investigate pillows

My “finished” items… so far
