The Itch....

I've got the itch!  No!!... not the itch to have another baby and not the itch to move....I've got the itch to redecorate!  And when I say redecorate, I don't mean shifting things around....I'm ready for a NEW LOOK!  I want new paint colors, new hardwood floors, new drapes and pillows!  I want new art, new bedding, new organization!  I'm ready....I'm pumped....Pinterest has completely inspired me!!

Let's start with this wall color!!  Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore!  I'm in L.O.V.E!!!  I want a grey room!!  I NEED a grey room!!  We have a three day weekend coming up!!....I think I know what I may be doing!!

Isn't this a beautiful color palate!!  I am loving the grey with accents of yellow and purple!!   

Ohhh, the drapes!!  Mr. are such a tease!!!  Mom...I may need a few more sewing lessons!  :)

Pillows, pillows and more pillows!!  Don't you just love the silhouettes!!  Mom...after you show me how to sew curtains, you may need to teach me how to sew a pillow!!    

A vintage window as a room separator!!   hmmm....where could I put this??

If I can't find anywhere to hang the window, I could use it as wall art!  I love this look!!

Dad...Even though it is August and 99 degrees outside.....can you please start chopping your winter firewood and save me a few pieces!  I NEED this coffee table!!  

Oh...and Dad....while you're helping me out, do you have an old wooden ladder laying around??  This would look fabulous hanging on my wall, don't ya think??  

I know, I is helping me is chopping firewood.....It's Daddy K's turn now!!

Daddy K...can you please build a coat hook like this???  It would look perfect in our foyer!!  Pretttyyy pleasseee (batting eyes) 

Ok, that everyone else is helping me put together my "dream" house, I think I can handle the accessorizing!!

Wouldn't this be great as kitchen art!!

I NEED floor to ceiling frames in at least one room in my house....maybe the bedroom??

They could be frames of cool silhouettes like this!!  

A huge framed chalkboard under the bar!!  What a great accent....and Jules would LOVE it!!

I really want to make a vintage mirror like this!!  It's so beautiful!!!  Mirrors can really open up small spaces!

source unknown
For the love of yellow!!  I must incorporate this accent color into my home!

What a great idea for a magazine holder!!  I'm sure I have one of these buried in my basement somewhere!!

Outdoor lighting!!  I could so make this!!  DONE!!

Shelving above your drapes!!  Excellent idea!!  Daddy K....I may need your assistance again!!

Ok, I think that will wrap it up for today!  My inspiration images could go on for days!!  I guess I should also mention that each of the above images are on my to-do "dream list"...and until Daddy K reads this post, he has no idea about my plans to redecorate!!  :)  oh well!!  who said a girl can't dream a little!  Stick around to see what all gets accomplished!!  Until then, this is the quote I'm living by.....
