I don't have anything of my own to show you today. I'm grumpy. The kids are grumpy. I'm pretty sure the house is grumpy. And I have hours and hours of work to do to get ready for yet ANOTHER open house this weekend. So of course, I'm blogging instead of cleaning. Avoidance anyone?
Really though...What is the point of yet another open house? I'm pretty sure that everyone in a 50 mile radius has now seen the inside of my house. Nobody likes me. Everybody hates me. I think I'll go eat worms. Well, maybe I'll eat Rollos.
Anyway, I do have pictures of someone else's house to show you. It's a model home that belongs to the company that's building our new house. This model home was decorated by a fancy schmancy designer with diplomas and certificates and everything. I just love walking around this beautiful home even though it makes me feel like my home is being decorated by some hillbilly. Oh wait...it is. Me. :-0 Please forgive the picture quality. I was trying to be discreet so that the realtor lady didn't think I was a nut. Taking pictures of the walls and all. Here we go...
First, here's the wall above the fireplace. She just used pieces of trim to create those rectangles and painted the inside with a darker color than the wall.
Here's the dining room walls. It looks like fancy, expensive wainscoting but it's really just a chair rail with squares of trim. Home Depot sells pre-made squares of trim that you can just attach to the wall. No cutting needed!
Here's the vaulted ceiling in the master bedroom. Same thing...
And the wall in the formal living room. I'm not a big fan of mirrors on the wall but it works in here.
And over the doorway in the living room.
And this is my favorite one...The wall above the bed in the guest bedroom. She got all fancy here and used two types of trim. I am so doing this above the bed in my guest bedroom. I think it will look great especially since I don't have a headboard.
Here's a close-up.
I think this is a great way to get a custom look on your walls without spending a ton of time or money. And I'm all about that!
Now, if you've read this far and looked at all these pictures, you must like me. Or at least my blog. ;-) I know that some of you are praying women and I could use some prayer today. Our family is growing weary of this selling/building process. More so the selling part. We just need strength to keep moving forward and the wisdom to discern God's will in this whole situation. Thanks!
