i put up the shelves. i'll take a picture when my kitchen is clean again (lol, never). i used white track shelving and a cheap pine board i got cut up at home depot. i'll paint it white when it's warm out. looks fine! i might get that magic decluttering book.

home diaries

upstairs hallway light bulbs die. upon taking shade off i notice there was only one 40w bulb in there. got new bulbs. realize i was not paying attention and the things you screw in were the small size. get bulbs again. install. absentmindedly put screws holding lip of glass shade to ceiling fitting on way too tight. shade cracks into pieces from pressure of screws 1 min later. SO STUPID.

I need a giant rug and thinking of getting a piece of carpet bound on the edges - anyone done this?

How giant does this rug need to be?

about 10.5 x 11.5 feet? Not sure actually, going to play around with the rug we have to see where's best to put it.

I fantasize about filling my house w layers of rugs from overstock.com tbh

Thanks, that's the kind of place I was looking for

I think they have lots of nice looking ones. I wish the sort function worked slightly more specifically but actually it's pretty good.

Do have sofas and gorgeous wallpaper in my dining room, although the rest of the room is covered in highchair/playpen/baby food

Got a room with walls painted grey - need some colour in it, especially a blind (one of the ones I still don't have from November 2015 apparently). I like some yellow fabrics but is grey&yellow going to be too played out from Pinterest in the near future?

If you like it, you like it. Some colors go together.

gray goes well with a lot of colors. yellow, red, purple, and green all match w/ it well imo

Was considering doing a shari vari in the back of our bookshelves but decided to go for a single colour instead. Which should match/complement the blind.

To be more specific, different grays go with different other colors. It's more about the shading than anything. There are a million grays.

me too! stop being so disgusting. also re-start painting. i'm acknowledging i'm never going to *want* to paint. so i need to stop waiting to want to paint.

I've transcended from clutter to actually dirty around here, took day off work for mental health reasons and am going to try to get some cleaning done!

my breaking point came when i saw something hiding behind the grapefruit and made the mistake of reaching out to touch it and it was an extremely decrepit pear ;_;
pretty gross

i have the desire to paint, de-clutter and clean when I'm totally slammed with work and don't have time to do these things -- also, the desire is an escape mechanism -- putting off one thing in favor of something else that isn't as immediately necessary but easier. bedroom really needs paint, as it hasn't been painted in almost 20 yrs (as in right before I moved in). But I'm going to wait until summer or at least warmish spring, so I can open the windows to air out the paint smell.

When I'm pushed to action with a really busy week at work I feel the obligation to be _on_ when I'm home, too

which is horrible because slow times at work would be the perfect time to get a lot of home stuff done but I slow down

first time i've seen this thread. chinavision!'s pad's feng shui is off the charts
