Ghost of Decorater's past.

Mr. Romantic went outta town with little Romantic for the weekend, while they're away, ive been getting so much spring cleaning done. I stumbled across an old box of photos that ide forgotten about. I thought maybe u guys would get a kick out of some of them. Ive always loved to decorate, ever since i could remember, however ide like to think ive gotten alittle alot better at it as the years have gone  by...........Try not to LOL too hard at  a few of my faupas...........Renovations have always reeked havok around here, including living with a subfloor and hand-me-down furniture, dont cha just love the couch from the MIL, lol...


I was really proud of the way i could throw a shower, but not sure what i was thinking with those floral drapes, lol....



I found it a good alternative to being able to afford "real" tile  just yet, to go ahead and paint the concrete floors in a black n white check..............I thought it looked pretty darn good!




Not quite certain of the insanity that drove me to do that faux finish on the walls, lol.........and just check out that bench to the right, i actually cut those square "tiles" from a wallpaper border, can ya believe that? I was filled with creative genius...........But boy i remember when i discovered slipcovers, omg, they came off and went in the wash.......i looked for new ones every time i went to the superstore.....


I could sure use a paint brush though, I painted the desk/bed/bookshelf thingie. Just look at those bright colors........



But one project i was especially proud of was the playroom, all hand painted by none the less, the Hopeless Romantic herself....Of course the tree has long since been painted over, and a teenager occupies the room, but it was fun looking back..........


So what skeletons are in ur decorating closet??? Joining Sweet Debbie for her Monday Newbie Party and Carrie over at Dittle Dattle for Amaze Me Monday. Seeya there.

Isn't it funny how our tastes in decorating evolve over the years. You will always remember ;-)

I love the desk bed. The concept is so versatile and space saving.

Love the painted tree and those bright colors are perfect for a little boy's room! It's fun to look back and see all the decor(both crazy and cute) from our pasts. Unfortunately that crazy floral & wood hand-me-down sofa isn't in my past yet. Still have one in our rec room. Thanks for sharing.

I'm hosting my monthly Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays linkup party and would love for you to share a project you did or made or a thrifty find you're proud of from before blogging. Can't wait to see what you bring.
