Remember what our living room use to look like?
This is some of the living room now....(just a little bit.)
I've decided to change up the colors a bit. Less red/burgundy. I want more of the farmhouse look now. I also like the more modern chic look as well. It's been a hard decision, but I think I found what I want.
Now to finish my other plans for the rest of the room. I decided to remove my Stripling warriors painting from off the doors and move it to another place in the room. I'm thinking a big wreath to go above the center of the couch on the doors. Like this...without the jingle bells, of course. Maybe a few cotton pods instead of the bells or something. I have a few other things planned for the doors but I'll share those later.
Then above my mantle shelf I have decided to hang our super large white shutters and then put my large clock in the middle of them. Kind of like this... with the big shutters behind the clock instead of what you see in this photo. My large shutters are four feet tall each and are about eighteen inches wide each, so it's going to take something stronger than command hooks to hang them.
This is one of my shutters.
And this is my clock. It's a bit dusty, but you get the idea.
As I mentioned before, my living room changes are a work in progress and I am trying to do all of this with the things I have and not purchase anything new because our budget just doesn't have it to spare these days. But that's what makes it fun for me,.....doing things without spending anything or very little. More to come as things progress.
We still haven't received a final word from social security yet. I'm hoping no news is good news. I'm giving them until after the 20th and then we will be calling and taking trips to their office again. Let's hope we hear something soon.
As it turns out, I spent the day and night "nursing Kevin back to health" Thursday and Friday, and now I feel like I'm coming down with a cold. So, I'm making my chicken and rice dish for dinner in the hopes that that will work just like chicken noodle soup does to cure a cold. I can't get afford to get sick. That would not be good. If nothing changes by tomorrow, I'll start taking some cold medicine and vitamins. I've already taken some Tylenol to help ward off a scratchy throat. Let's hope that does the trick. Looks like the rest of the groceries may need to wait until tomorrow to come out of the trunk of our car. I was going to go over to Danielle's house tomorrow after church to teach her how to make an apple pie, but that may have to wait a bit. I would hate to get everyone sick. I'm hoping I'll be better tomorrow.
Well, I should get going. Take care myfriends and we will talk again soon.
