Decorating Chaos

Hello Friends!
If you read my previous post you know that I am now on a decorating frenzy.
Check it out of you missed it for an update on our move.
I'm trying to slow down but I feel like tearing each room apart and that is precisely
what I have done. Piles of *stuff* are everywhere Yikes! It has me uneasy. If you have
read my blog for any length of time you know how much I organize and clean so this 
chaos is not me. I know it will all be worth it in the end. I can't wait to show you all of
 the before and afters. Here is a peek of the new home office formally the living room.
It is cloudy and raining today so I can't get very good pictures. More coming soon.
 We are using the chair from the family room and the same drapes.
This room will be changed to hardwoods in a few months.
I definitely can't handle that extra noise it takes to have them put in right now.
The long weekend ahead has us painting some more rooms and celebrating
our thirteen year wedding anniversary on the 20th. Where does the time go?
~*~
Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy anniversary on the 20th. We will celebrate our 37th on the 22nd. I hate the mess during a project, too, but usually so worth it in the end.

Happy Anniversary to you and
Mr. O-H-I-O! So...re-decorating...! Yea for you! If I could...I would arrive with some energy bites and some coffee for you and your hon-bun. But since I am in OHIO...no can do. Check out my pinterest recipe board for the energy bites recipe. So easy and so delicious and so healthy! Take care, Nancy

I'm sure everything will be lovely, Melissa. I know the chaos must get on your nerves--you usually have things so spic and span! But hopefully the result will be worth it.

Happy anniversary! You're right--the time goes by so quickly!

Melissa!
HAPPY HAPPY Anniversary to you and your sweetie!
I pray that you will be blessed with many, many more years together!
Your husband must be a wonderful man. How do I know? You are happy in your homemaking and a hard worker! You feel encouraged and loved by him.
Your rooms will be just beautiful and fresh when you are finished and you have inspired me just now to get off my franny and rearrange something.
Love and hugs!

I am sure it will all be worth the mess. I feel like I am living like that right now myself as we have stuff all over too since we are painting our home office. At least this way you make the mess once and your done. It will be beautiful! Happy Anniversary to you both and many more years of love and happiness ! xoxo Jeanette

Happy Anniversary. Can't wait to see the end result.

Lizabeth @ Infuse With Liz said...

Isn't that funny! I'm trying my office in a bedroom and you are taking yours out of the bedroom! I know you will have a great outcome whatever you do! I love that your hubby is so helpful. I couldn't do half of what I do without Dan's help. It makes things go a lot better when you can work together! I like how you took charge and re-grouped your thinking and turned this non-move into a positive thing!
Happy belated Anniversary Wishes!!
We're going to have our 34th this April!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Can't wait to see your home! It was gorgeous already, and I'm sure it will be even more so! Happy 13th :) to you both. xo, Andrea
