I swore that this year when I took down Christmas decorations (and yes, it is already done!) that I was going to change things up a bit. Which brings me to my "nightmare" issue. This is what I speak about:
Not sure what you call them, but here in AZ, we call them "niches". I will say, that when we moved here 11 years ago, I was quite enamored...that lasted about a nano second! Not only do I have TWO niches (one of almost equal size in my Master Bedroom), but I have two GIGANTIC niches! See that upper middle one...yep, pretty sure you could have a picnic up there! Ignore the bottom ones...they are child's play compared to the uppers!
If I dug around a bit, I could probably find a picture of the "before", but since I am kind of lazy, we are going to skip it! It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out my dilemma...these are BIG freakin' holes and therefore I need BIG accessories to fill them! Trust me when I say...if you put something in there that is too small, it is totally dwarfed!
I am the first to admit that my weakest talent is definitely decorating...seriously! I believe, you either have it, or you don't...pure and simple! And I definitely don't!
Right now, all the things that I took out of the niche before Christmas decorating is stacked in my back guest bathroom...and since I know you are dying to know why, I will tell you! It, as well as the guest bedroom that is attached to it, is waiting for a facelift as well! Different story...different day!
There are a few things that I am willing to put back into the niche that I took out...but most things, gotta go! Needless to say, this could be empty for a long time!
I am going to take this picture to my local "Rod Works" in hopes that one of their designers can give me some ideas! They have such cool things there...love that store!
Oh, and as if that isn't enough on my plate, I am also in search of a new clock to go above my fireplace. I am in "design overload" right now...I think my head is going to explode!
Let me know if you have any ideas...I am open to any and all suggestions!
There's a skinny girl who lives inside of me that's screaming to get out...I can usually shut her up with cookies!
