Whenever I'm away from my house for a while, I always think of things I want to change/fix/buy when I get back home. Combine those thoughts with reading "The Nesting Place" in the car and refinishing all of the floors in my house and I have the perfect storm of change.
We've moved everything from neary every room and piled it into three rooms. It's like hoarders but more stressful; I have to climb and walk on furniture to get into bed.
But the open space lets me see things with new eyes and the time crunch inspired me to paint the study and the back hallway. See all that pretty light in the back hallway? It was all dark wood trim and too-shiny orange walls yesterday morning. Now I'm thinking it will be a gallery space; a place for artwork and other pretty things.
