Home Sweet Home

I know I need to post something, but I just can't want to. I have a few half-hearted ideas, nothing that draws me to the keyboard. I guess I have been enjoying "homemaking" too much lately to want to blog.
I used to be quite the creative home decorator. Really, I had one of those homes my friends would bring their friends to see. But when I started working full-time that all went out the window. Nine months out of the year, I don't really see my house. I go to work in the morning, come home, cook and house-keep, get on the computer and do all of this with a pair of blinders on. Then comes summer and I see my house again and I mean really see it and let me tell you, "love ain't blind"!
Poor house needs paint, a good thorough cleaning and a general sprucing up.
I'm fairly happy with my living and family rooms. The living room just needs a rug and I just can't decide on what I want. I'm so indecisive lately. When my two married kids moved out, their rooms became "dead zones", catch-alls of ironing, storage and mismatched furniture pieces.
I have begun my attack with Steve's bedroom, and with the hope that it will spur me on to completion , I am posting "before" pictures.
I've actually already begun painting the bed, dresser/hutch and picture frame. I have a vision, vague, but a vision just the same. I'll keep you posted.
