Pinterest my Basement?

Have you ever found something beautiful on Pinterest only to discover that you had an almost exact replica of it stashed away somewhere?  

    It's awesome!!!

As I have mentioned before my children and I live in my childhood home with my parents. To make a long story short- we moved back after my bipolar diagnosis and after I was taken off work via my doctor and could no longer afford to stay in our apartment. But enough about that.....

Mom and I decided that, after having the same color scheme in the living room and adjoining kitchen for the past 5 years, it was time for a change!

Where do you go when your redecorating and need inspiration? PINTEREST of course! 

I don't want to give away too much of our design plans just yet as I will be doing a whole post on our living room makeover in the near future. But I just have to share this pic.....

Pretty right? I thought so too! And as I looked at it closely the bottom two pieces really caught my eye! 

I've seen that somewhere before!

Look what I had stashed away in the boxes of random junk in our basement...


Can you believe it?!? 

I found these wall pieces a couple years ago for just $4.99 each at Rossy. They were an off white and I painted them a dark turquoise and then changed my mind once again and painted them red! 

While I was rummaging through the basement I also found a can of left over paint in a perfect aqua blue and this is the end result....

Excuse the ugly background pretty please :) I am working on my kitchen table and had to place a flat board underneath it while painting. 

So, what started as a Pinterest search ended in a nice little surprise and the first pieces of decor for our new living room design which I will share real soon!

Until next time.....
