Our master bedroom has been painted and the final touches are nearly finished. We still have the master bath to do. And I still need a headboard and possibly another dresser. Living in a small town doesn't offer a lot stores so my daughter and I are considering taking a few days for an out of town shopping trip. She wants to go to an Ikea and I want HomeGoods.
If you've never been to a HomeGoods store you're in for a treat. They're a discount store owned by TJ Maxx. There's an upscale feel to the store and they have all things related to homes - kitchen items; bed & bath; furniture; area rugs; pet items; and more things than I can mention! Check out their website http://www.homegoods.com.
I'm getting over whelmed with decorating ideas running amuck in my brain. I skip to what to do in the kitchen - then what color for the living room - then to wallpaper or stencil - then to wood floor choices. Does this happen to everyone when they move to a new home? It's hard to stay focused on one project at a time.
I've decided that I want to stencil the master bedroom water closet/potty room, probably the one wall seen from the main bathroom. It will be a subtle blue on blue. Here are a few of the patterns I like. I found these on etsy.com, https://www.etsy.com.
This pattern is from OMGstencils on etsy.com

Just click on their names to see more stencil styles that they offer. Stenciling is a way to truly customize your home with color and design. And it's relatively easy.
I still need to make stained glass light switch covers for the guest room and our bedroom. However in reality it will probably be a while before that happens. Like the busy cobbler who didn't have time to make shoes for his children, I've been too busy making switch plates for customers that I don't have time to make them for my home. Here are some of the stained glass mosaic switch plates that I've made for customers:

Well, it's time to start working so I'll say so long for now!
