Anyone ever heard of a little blog called…
Ya, I already knew you know her. Who doesn’t know her? She’s like, the hottest blog in town.
Trust me, with almost 6,500 “google friends” (compared to my 600+), I’m pretty sure everyone knows Sarah.
I’m not here to convince you how amazing her blog is. It speaks for itself.
What I am gonna do is to show you why I get serious fits of anxiety whenever I
stalk read her blog.
There’s one word that throws me into a fit of heart-racing, cold-sweating panic like no other.
Here is Sarah’s most recent family room picture:
I love the way she decorates. LURVE it. With a big fat capital LURVE.
But what I love even more than her accessories and amazing sense of style…
I love the moulding.
There’s a reason she has almost 6,500 “google friends”. I mean, come on! Just look at her house!
Now, yes, she does give me anxiety. Like as in, I-think-I-may-be-going-through-“the change” level of anxiety. But not all anxiety is bad. Mine is the good kind, though still as annoying as the bad kind.
It’s good anxiety because when I see Sarah’s house, my heart jumps out of my chest and yells at me,
“You can do this! You can totally hang moulding. THIS is something that you can copy-eeeeee!”
I love Sarah’s blog because she has such amazing ideas that I know I can replicate. It’s all I can do to keep myself from jumping up right.now. and racing to our local hardware store to purchase moulding and paint.
Eventually I will have this moulding in my house.
Unforch I have to prioritize my projects (dang time constraints and cash flow, or lack thereof!). Unforch I can’t hang moulding at the moment because I should probably finish unpacking and taking care of other things first.
BUT, and a big fat BUT!, I WILL copy Sarah eventually and I WILL get molding hung up in my family room.
Her fireplace also makes my heart pitter-pat.
We have similar fireplaces in our family rooms, and trust me when I say I literally canNOT wait to get my hands on some moulding for above my fireplace.
Seriously, why can’t all my other crap just be done already so I can get busy on the moulding?!!
Moulding is one of the cheapest easiest ways to turn your home from boring to FAB. It’s so easy to install (just some nails and a level! Oh, and a saw.) and can transform a room in only a short amount of time and a few greenbacks.
Here’s my living room at the moment (Well, this was like a week ago, so it’s a tiny bit more “finished” but not really).
So boring. The gumball machine IS NOT staying there. FYI. I’m pretty sure I’m going to keep my Rodney White print above the fireplace for awhile though.
Instead of me trying to describe what I want to do, here’s a picture instead.
Basically I’m going to copy Thrifty Decor Chick as much as possible, and then for the rest of the room I’m going to decorate based on how I think Thrifty Decor Chick would actually decorate the room. (I have no problem admitting that most of my inspiration comes from other bloggers!)
And in case I haven’t mentioned it enough yet, go check out Mrs. Thrifty Decor Chick herself by clicking on the link below.
My goal in life is to be as awesome and successful at home decorating as Sarah.
If I reach 6,500 Google Friends, I’ll know I’ve made it. Hell, I’ll be pretty flippin’ thrilled with 1,000. But 6,500 would just rock.
(I’m actually thrilled that there are
600 peeps out there who actually want to read what I have to say! I always wondered if my constant chattering would eventually pay off. For all the teachers who scolded me for talking non.stop. (all of them), ppfft.)
PS If you haven’t added me as a friend yet on Google Friend Connect… pretty please?!
