It seems like every January I get the bug to change something in the house. Paint a wall or two. Find the perfect cabinet to house the "good" stuff. Clean out closets. Re-do the guest room, again. Move pictures to different walls. Organize something. There's really not much I'd change in our home - I love the way it looks and how well it works for us as is ---
but, every January I get the bug to change something.
With red drapes in the dining area that matches the opposite red wall - it needed something to liven up the space. The chair seats (from our 33 year old dining room set) matched the living room's wing chair (I did that when I bought the wing chair and new living room furniture about 10 years ago) -- now seemed boring. So, I went fabric looking and could not find anything that was "it". A week later, while waiting for our Chinese take-out dinner, I ran next door to Tuesday Morning and found a king sized patchwork quilt that screamed "Take Me Home". It only took a couple of hours to make the new transformation -- now we've got some pattern in the room matching all that red and the other quilts I have scattered around the house.
It's still January and I'm searching again for something to change in the house....
