I go through waves of being content with my home and wanting to rip it all out and start fresh. Lately the latter. Not ALL of it. Just a few rooms, particularly the living room. It's always felt a little bit thrown together since we've never really BOUGHT living room furniture but have so fortunately inherited most of it. Um all of it huh Mel? And I still love everything, but just don't think I've succeeded in pulling it all together. But then I move a few pillows and get over it... then I let myself do searches that lead me to homes like this and it all comes back. The need for new colors, new patterns, something NEW. Why did I think that wall looked good? why did I think I needed three identical pillows? Why did I think I could do silk flowers that many times in one room?
So no. I certainly won't be buying any major pieces any time soon. HOWEVER. I bought these two hideous chairs from Angel View thrift store the other day, (I checked on them for a month until they marked them half off), and I seem to think I'm going to refinish and reupholster them into something amazing. Me. Reupholster. I've never sewed, or knitted, or crocheted, or.... taken apart a big chair.... nothing of the sort. I'm not really sure how I think I'll figure it out. Maybe I'll end up waiting until I can afford to pay someone to do it and it will be one of those things where you look back and realize you could have just bought the anthro chairs.. But who doesn't need a challenge?.... or just an I'm-an-idiot learning experience.
