Holidays always throw me off. Lets pretend today is actually Monday, that way when its Friday it will be like finding $20 in your coat pocket…
I feel like at least once a week I start off a post with “If you’ve read Vintage Revivals for a while….” and if I haven’t guilted you into it yet, you should know that is LITERALLY one of the biggest downfalls that I have, I assume that you guys know everything Vintage Revivals (even though in all reality I know that you don’t) So there is that tangent for you…back to the point.
I have been learning and DIYing my way from complete nothingness (I was a spray paint virgin when I started the blog, if you can believe that!) I LOVE learning new things and don’t love repeating projects/colors etc. because its just so much more exciting to try something new!! So that is what I have done for the last 2.5 years. I have fought to try new crap on an extreme basis. Extreme to the point that my house has been a bit like a crazy schizophrenic. Each room was its own entity and didn’t really tie in to each other except for the fact that I loved them all at some point. I can so clearly see the evolution of my esthetic from room to room, which explains the constant need for change.
But as I am typing this post from my couch something (or should I say some things) make me very happy.
I found this awesome (then brass) chandelier at the DI (Utah’s version of Goodwill) for $15.00. And wanted to do SOMETHING amazing.
So I spray painted it purple and hung it in my entryway. For a year and 1/2 it has been the lone purple soldier in the sea of rainbow happiness that my house is becoming.
Now after almost 2 years I have found something to tie my kitchen to my entryway (something I thought might never happen).
On Black Friday Rugs USA was having their infamous 75% off sale and I scored this over dyed electric plum rug for next to nothing. And how about that awesome table? Huh? Tutorial coming soon!!
So basically the whole point of this post is to tell you, that when you are fearlessly discovering your true style, don’t be concerned if things feel a little disjointed for a while. As long as you love something it will (eventually) come full circle and you will appreciate it all the more.
