That’s how I feel about this space. I am head-over-heels in love – to the moon and back – beyond a shadow of a doubt. I love it!!!
At least half of you are shaking your heads and lamenting over my bad taste. I get that. It’s ok. We can still be friends, even if you hate my taste.
I told my husband I was going to unleash the full force of my wacky-tacky style on this room. I wasn’t joking.
He came home late one night, after I was already in bed and nearly asleep. He slipped in and said, “Triangles, huh?”
How did he even notice them in the dark?
Let’s talk about the triangles for a moment.
All you perfectionist/OCD types out there just developed a tick looking at my triangles. I went with the random look, because there was no way I was measuring and marking and calculating until each triangle was perfectly symmetrical. It would make me break out in hives and hyperventilate. I’m not really into measuring. Turns out I didn’t get any of the perfectionist genes in my family, not a one. Nope. My brother got them all and he uses them well. Me, I’m on board with random. It makes my brain peaceful.
These triangles are wall decals from CozyWallArt.com. If you haven’t checked them out, you must. It’s a new totally rad company. I worry they might take offense to me calling them “totally rad” (because let’s face it, nobody’s said that since 1982), but CozyWallArt people, I mean it in a wonderful way. You rock!
It’s not only their company I love, but it’s them, the people who run the company. They are all kinds of helpful and in my package, they sent me a little gift pouch with lollipops and a flower decal. It was such a sweet personal touch.
So, I used painter’s tape to put up the triangles. I didn’t want giant glaring white patches.
I want to triangle my entire house, except I might want to use some gold polka-dots too. My husband should worry.
I stopped the triangles on top of the window, because I promised my son he could hang some Legend of Zelda posters. This is half a playroom, after all. Yes, I have lost my mind. Why do you ask?
I’m mixing business and kid pleasure all in the same room.
That’s his ancient television and “vintage” Nintendo. He keeps the controllers and games in the basket that he found in the trash while walking home from school one day. He hauled it home, because he thought it would be “perfect”.
I feel a little guilty he got the junking gene.
My desk is never that clean in case you were wondering. It’s usually a functional mess. My filing system lacks….oh, probably it lacks a system most of all. See previous talk on the lack of a perfectionist gene.
Ok, this gallery wall speaks to my heart. Kinda like chocolate.
It’s a mixture of pictures I took, kid art, and a sheep painting I found at a local arts & crafts fair.
I stole frames from all over the house in order to get this wall done. The rest of my rooms are naked. I have to cover my eyes when walking through them, but it was worth every stolen frame.
I’m delighted my daughter was a scarecrow for Halloween, because a zombie would have looked terrible on my wall.
I had this Instagram picture turned into a canvas.
I spray painted a pair of antlers. Some questioned my sanity regarding this decision, but I stand by my instincts – love the gold.
My kids think I’ve got a farm theme going on – sheep, crazy chicken, antlers, and even frogs.
This sign is one of my favorites! I created it in PicMonkey and printed it out at home. I have seen this saying on a blog or maybe Pinterest before, but I couldn’t find the original, so I just made it myself.
We had the horseshoe in the house. We always seem to buy houses with an abundance of horse shoes inside and outside. Don’t ask.
Here’s the elephant, because our pretend farm has an international flare.
I’ve had this do-dad for years and love it.
Eventually I want a floor-to-ceiling gallery wall, but it will take me a little more time to finish collecting pieces. I couldn’t wait till it was done before I showed you.
This next photo shows the wall on the other side. If I can ever find some white chalk, my son already has plans for some big anime style drawings.
So what do you guys think?
Do you love my new and improved home office?
And, because everyone loves a good before and after…
And, if on the off-chance you haven’t seen my desk DIY, please go on over and check out the flower pattern I painted on the top, but then come back and admire my triangles one more time. Okay.
I’m going to get myself a chocolate bar, park myself in this room and sit. Sounds like a plan, right? Only, I should probably trade in the chocolate for carrots or something slightly more healthy.
** CozyWallArt.com gifted me the triangle decals to use in my space. All thoughts and opinions on them and their products are my own. Check them out! You’ll like them too.
