1. New pillow covers.
Adding a new pillow cover is one of my favorite easy ways of changing the look of a room. I treated myself to two new covers, both from Amazon, of all places: the Aztec patterned pillow ($3.59) on the blue chair, and the buffalo checked pillow ($6.98)on the couch. I like the way the black and white balances the pink, gold, and navy pillows, and mixes in the farmhouse and modern look.
2. New bedroom lamps.
Here’s how my mind works – I want to upgrade the lamps in one room, so I end up changing all the lamps in all the bedrooms. Here’s how this happened: after years using the guest room as a place to put all the mismatched stuff that I didn’t want to get rid of, I decided to at least upgrade the lamps.
See the “before:”
To do that, I bought a lampshade that was actually the right size for the big brass lamp that belonged to Brian’s great-grandmother, and I spray painted the tiny lamp and took it to work, along with the one that matched it from Brian’s side of the bed (here’s the blog post on that, with photos of how they turned out).
3. Books I’m reading.
4. Whole 30.
5. “Thy Will” song by Hillary Scott.
If you haven’t heard this song on the radio yet, you might want to grab a tissue. The music and the lyrics are truly beautiful. I’ve listened to it often enough that the song will get stuck in my head, and then it will be a reminder to me throughout my day at work when I start to worry, or try to control situations – not my will, but His. I’ve been clinging to this reminder the last couple weeks, as more restructuring at work was announced, leaving me with lots of unknowns. I hope it speaks to you too!
