Is anyone watching Design Star on HGTV? I found it during the second show and LOVE it! The last episode had them doing an individual challenge of designing a small’ish room with a couch, coffee table and bookcase in it. And the key was they had to do all of their shopping at a 99 cent store! Too fun. Scott had to leave and I have to say I really liked him. I thought the one to go should have been Josh. He used shiny mirror like bags or mirrors all over the room and it was just way too much.
Oh and when they get kicked off the show, they are told that their show has been cancelled – because they are competing for their own show on HGTV! How cool is that. I love it.
I love setting up a house but I don’t think I’ve ever finished setting one up. Sure the first house I lived in (after moving out of my Mom’s place) was easy to decorate – I was young and just hung up a few autographed pictures of cute country singers and a thing for my mail. Easy! In college I decorated my dorm room (I requested and got a single room) and that was fun – I hung up posters and pictures on the wall plus had the cork board decorated too. When I got a roommate I don’t think I hung up anything around the main area of the house, just in my room. I think we had a bunch of posters everywhere otherwise. And the places Chris and I have lived together I halfway decorate, thinking I need to do something (paint) before finishing stuff (like hanging pictures). I finally have pictures hung up though we do still need to paint.
Of course now I’m thinking of what to change for decorations in the house – when really I should finish hanging up pictures then go back and paint a room at a time. I think I’ve said I’m going to paint a room at a time for at least six months so far. *sigh*
