My first idea came from a large pineapple shaped item I saw in the lawn and garden section of a local discount store. I Loved when I saw it then and was kicking myself that I hadn't picked it up months ago when I first saw. BUT to my luck and surprise when I went back to the store and they had one left for me! I started with that piece and built the rest of the room around it. Not to my surprise, I gravitated towards a black and white shower curtain. Is it strange to have black and white be your favorite colors??? I of course searched for the one I liked best and even found it on sale. So I was going with a black/white/green theme with some accents of silver. Too much? not enough? I wasn't sure.
Slowly but surely I found all the pieces that I felt would complete the room and I must mention there is nothing like company coming to light a fire underneath yourself to complete projects, clean up the "piles" of mail and whatnot to really get some of your "TO DOS"..... DONE! *snicker* I broke out the paint can and brushes LATE one night and had FINALLY retouched all the mismatched paint on the walls. Sad to think I had been putting it off for so long and it only took me a fraction of time. and the results? SOOO much better. Waking up the next day with freshly painted walls united the room and then I stripped it, SCRUBBED it clean and attacked!!!
In no time at all it was a completely different room!! So inviting and just begging to be used. And the BEST part? I got almost everything on sale or at discount and used alittle creativity to enhance the items I had bought to fit the room. So.......come upstairs and take a peek with me.
