re-do [s].

whenever we have company coming into town, I always feel the need/pressure/urge/impowerment [whatever you want to call it] to do something new to the walls of the condo, the kitchen, H's room...okay, really every room in the condo. Thoughts are always running through my head on what I can do to give the house a little re-do, but usually it falls short of my expectations....mainly because I rarely finish, or I won't even start! When Hudson' birthday was just around the corner and with my family coming into town, I gave myself three weeks to come up with something different and spectacular, that would get finished & something that will stay...because I'm going to like it enough...and I have to tell you, I'm not only liking my "re-do"[s]...I'm loving them!

First up was the living room wall.
I've been super hesitate to put anything on our walls. Mainly because I really didn't think we would be living here this long, so to me, putting things on the wall was a more permanent thing. SCARY!
But lately, I've been getting over my fear of actaully "living" in Colorado. It only took my 2 years!
oh my...
SO boring. SO plain. SO blah.
I'm actaully kind of embarrassed now that I look back at it!
The middle frame is an excellent conversation piece [it's our last name, Komma, in alphabet photography] but after some time, this wall was just not working for me. at all.

In the process of getting things together for this wall, I also realized that all we had hung in the house were pictures of Kalob and I...from our wedding!! Hudson is ONE dangit! There had to be a change made! Luckily, I had just had our family pictures printed and I wanted to have them hung, but I also had so many other perfect pictures that I just needed a place! With not very much wall space in the condo, I had to get creative, and thanks to Pinterest and many many opinions from the husband, friends, and my mom...up went the "picture wall"!

It was a lot to take in at first...but I'm in love with it! I obviously have a thing for black and white, so it was a big step to paint the "k" mustard yellow- but it's certainly working for me...and the lovely living room wall!
Now there are finally pictures of us as a family!

Second up was the guest [Hudson's] bathroom!
Stay tuned...
