etsy get the look decor

Saturday January 7, 2012

Life got busy and I forgot to post about our house feature on Etsy’s Get the Look Decor blog.

It was so fun to be featured on Etsy. I am a huge fan of Etsy and love searching for handmade and vintage treasures.

I thought the links to all the similar styled objects/decor/trinkets was super interesting to see, and I loved the collages that Christine made of each room in our house. It was so fun to share our home with a larger audience.

Also, I am going to come back and read all those comments whenever I’m feeling down – they were so positive!

What a year for our little house, Apartment Therapy House Tour and an Etsy Get the Look Decor feature! Very cool.

It has been way tooooooo long since I have blogged!  Craziness.

Of course I am still updating the world on my happenings via Twitter (and Facebook) so you can always keep up with my life there.  If you are not on Twitter or Facebook (which is totally fine!) – check to your right to see my tweets :)

It has been a beautiful early Minnesota spring and the sunny days have been very inspiring to me.  A few weeks ago we decided the bedroom needed a makeover and got to work!  Check out the whole set of photos here.

Jake and I had been living with the same arrangement and paint color for three years and it was definitely time for a change.  The color before might look just fine in these photos but please keep in mind that in person it was a dull light green that was just plain uninspiring.  We picked out Misty Gray from Benjamin Moore. It took us about 5 seconds to choose a color because we knew that we wanted a very light gray. I think it looks beautiful!

We rearranged the bed, put some different art on the walls, and got a new bedspread for $14.99 from Ikea.  Total price for makeover – $60 (paint, print, and bedspread).

Whenever I rearrange furniture, art, or paint a room I always think, “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”  So let that be an inspiration to you — if you are thinking about making a change in your house, bedroom, office, kitchen, or life :) Just DO IT! Change is good.

So, what do you think?
