Yeah, it’s been forever since I last blogged. It’s not that I haven’t at least been *thinking* about interior decorating stuff…it’s just that my two jobs are eating my soul right now, and I still don’t have any money to actually put those thoughts and ideas into reality.
But every once in a while, I do splurge. I was at Ross today to get some more work clothes (because hello 90 degrees in late April in DC!), and I can never resist at least taking a look at their home dec. department when I’m there. Most of the time, the stuff is pretty eh…but occasionally I strike gold. CHEAP gold. This time in the form of a $20 black full size blanket! Even the black blankets I’ve been eyeing at Ikea are almost $50, so I was wicked excited to find this one. It’s nothing fancy, just a nice black microfleece.
It sure would look awesome with the pink and white polka-dotted sheets that I’ve been eyeing at Target forever. They’re only $24, but I already own 3 or 4 sheet sets (in yellow, burgundy, and one or two in dark blue…basically the three different decorating schemes I’ve gone through since living in DC–about one a year! :-P). Maybe they’ll bounce over to the clearance aisle at some point!
Also, I’m thinking that I’m going to paint my bedframe AGAIN. I’ve had the Ikea Dalselv bed since I moved to DC, and last year I finally broke down and stained the natural wood. That project didn’t exactly go as planned, because I was aiming for a reddish-brown, and ended up with a brownish-reddish-orange. In other words, eww. So now I think I want to paint it white. I have a table and two chairs (also from an Ikea run when I first moved to DC) that are also natural wood that I’d planned to paint glossy white, so while I’m at it, I figured I could also repaint the bedframe.
