Since moving into this rental home I have been slowly decorating it to make it feel like home. Teaching kindergarten full time is exhausting, I teach in an inner city school where many students are living below the poverty line which can be so mentally exhuasting that I have no mental energy to blog or decorate. Glad some of you are actually still out there reading my blog!
If you follow me on Instagram I have been posting about my love of FAT Paint. Not only do I love the chalk paint, but I love the lady behind the brand, Victoria. She was one of my first followers of my blog, encouraged me to keep at it. So when her life took an unexpected turn she decided to do something for herself and started FAT paint with her brother, Brad. Together that have created a chic paint! So proud.
When they recently collaborated with Amanda Forrest, I was given a package of paint to try. I am still on the fence about painting a bookcase in my family room, but decided to open Blushing Bombshell and paint a mirror in our master bedroom. I have been slowly tackling that room. Last year I replaced the ugly venetian mini-blinds and made custom Roman shades using fabric from Tonic Living. I am still hoping to get side panel drapes, from Ikea of course, and drapery hardware. New bedding is needed and possibly something for the end of the bed, like a bench?
In the meantime, I love the added punch of colour this newly painted mirror brings.
Now I just need to get my butt in gear and get drapery to add an extra layer to the windows. Then maybe a bench at the end of the bed? A new dresser?
