After waiting forever to finally finish off my formal living and dining room I ordered my Pergo floors from the pergo online outlet. I think they was called seaside pine. It is a whitewashed color which gives you that beach weathered look. Then much to my amazement I was talking to my firend and her friend will install them for me at a really good price. So now I have to wait to get them delivered...... I will probably give the walls a quick repainting of the off white paint color too. I really want the rooms to be a uncluttered shabby white beach cottage design. This weekend I am going through my china cabinet and getting rid of anything I don't need. I want to get rid of all the clutter. I will add all my books and whatever else I can find that are laying around. I have a few pieces of painted furniture that I did which I can also give to my sister so that will help unclutter things. I also will probably repaint all my picture frames from black to white to lighten up the rooms. Still need to get a white armoire and really want some white slipcovered furniture from Ikea. The brown leather sofa in the living room will not work even though I have a nice pottery barn slipcover the sofa is just way too big. I will somehow make it work in the family room. Hubby is going away for one day and night this weekend so I can clean and not have him tell me to save the stuff. He lis a hoarder and you know how that is. After living in this house for 9 years it finally feels like things are starting to come together decorating wise. I guess hubby will be surprised when the Pergo gets delivered, haven't quite told him how much I ordered. I got enought to do the master bedroom too. As long as he is not involved in the work he doesn't care. He lets me do what I want. All my friends have husbands who will not even allow them to hang a picture on the wall unless they get approval. I couldn't imagine being told what picture I can hang or what color curtains I can have. That is so sad so I guess I lucked out with my hubby.
