My old man and I have been together a long time. Like, a really REALLY long time and one thing we haven't really done is settle anywhere.
By "settle" I mean decorate. With the assistance of my Dad, we've been homeowners for a few years now and we still haven't settled in. I've got photos in frames, he's got artwork printed and I keep buying Missoni for Target house-related items (I can't help myself). Okay, not just Missoni stuff but I do keep buying housewares. Whether it's a shower curtain (*cough*Missoni*cough*) or a Klimt print from Ikea or random blind box items from Kidrobot, we have a lot of stuff but it's not any where in the house - except just taking up space.
While I was visiting with my Mom, we watched a few HGTV decorating shows which got me thinking about how we need to do stuff with our stuff. Then I remembered those really awesome Jonathan Adler pillows that I lusted after forever but never got...
What if I could design my own set of silhouettes and combination freezer paper stencil plus screen print them on these boring ass Ikea curtains we got forever ago? Hmmm...
I tired to explain it to the old man but he wasn't getting it. I Googled different items (which probably made me look like a monster) and got to Photoshoppin'. The old man still didn't see it. Ugh. I told him I'd print it out at a larger scale to see it big picture and to see if he'd like it.
I printed it this morning and BAM - sweet ass art piece!

Personally, I think that might be a little too much for the curtains BUT I think I can frame this and it would make a nice art piece for the space!
I have to admit - I was pretty inspired from walking around Castleberry Hill during Flux on Friday night so this weekend was a great motivator to finally get our house organized and decorated.
Now if we could only stop arguing over everything, I think we'd be fine. Aaaahhh...the joys of relationships and homeownership. Gotta love it
