summer...where are you?

Is anyone else as ready for some warm weather as I am?  I don't know if it is all the rain we have gotten and the seemingly constant grey days but I am thoroughly looking forward to some nice warm temps and sunshine.  We are lucky enough to live about 5 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and I intend on visiting it numerous times throughout the spring and summer months.  In the meantime I will daydream of warm days, sitting in this fabulous outdoor area and sipping on this yummy cocktail.  Who's with me?

headboard progress

So as I slowly proceed with our bedroom makeover, I have updated the headboard.  I  got the inspiration from some pillow covers I got from Lowe's Home Improvement for a whopping $6.99 a piece and then just went right on over to the painting section and picked up a fabric painter's drop cloth.  I washed and ironed the drop cloth and then did the Greek key style design with black ribbon.  The room is no where close to being complete but I thought I would give you a sneak peek at the updated headboard.

Sorry for being such a lazy blogger as of late, I don't know if it's the weather, the new job or lack of inspiration, but my apologies folks.  I have slowly but surely been working on our bedroom, all the while trying to "trim" down the amount of stuff we have in this house.  I'm apprehensive to buy anything new without taking stock of everything we have first.  As I've slowly ( I mean really slow ) been making the changes I've found myself gravitating to more neutral spaces.  Which is odd for me because I tend to choose color when I can. These rooms are really making me feel like I want to make some more changes around the house. What do you think, neutral or full of color?
