Hanging things on the wall:
We started by messing around with different arrangements on the floor
Buying a rug:
Returning said rug: While we love the colors and we were trying to be bold it was just too much for our small living room.
Buying lamps: We saw these lamps when we were furniture shopping and they matched the plan in my head for the bedroom. We decided to buy them even though at that point we still had not found a bedspread or anything else for the bedroom.
|there is also a matching one on Nick's side of the bed|
Finally buying a bed spread: We have been looking for a bed spread for a very long time and nothing was quite right. We had been looking at this one at target for a while and finally decided it was the closest to the one in my brain so we bought it:
Buying another bed spread: We found another one the same day we returned the one above to Target. Turns out we think this one is finally the one! Now we just need to paint and decorate the rest of the bedroom.
Installed Blinds: When we moved in the large front window just had sheer curtains. It was nice that they were there so we didn't immediately have to decide on window treatments; however, I personally am not the biggest fan of sheer curtains to begin with and the dog could see right through them and had taken to sitting in front of the window and barking at everyone and everything that walked or drove in front of our house.

So those are all the random things we have been up to lately. We will keep you posted as decorating continues!
