Decorating To Do List

Orange chevron table success.
Other decorating projects...
uhhh...
I have lost direction.
So this blog's main intention is to get me back on track.
I have a lot more I want to do but when I'm out & about shopping at stores I get really distracted.
& I am like ohh this is neat, oh this is neat too??
Hmm, then I end up with junk that I end up returning.
So I really need focus.
By the way, I got so desperate to blog that I am sitting by the pool right now at 11:15 pm & blogging.
I was in the clubhouse but it was way too cold & I am sick of air conditioning.
So instead I am going to get eaten alive again. 
Whatever, blogging is therapeutic & so worth it to me right now!

What I still need want to do:
1. More decorative objects for my bookshelf
{Note: I love this! I know this is originally for a wedding by Martha Stewart but I think it would be super cute to have a few of these on my bookshelf!!! I like how her website has all the directions on how to do this... this is definitely on my to-do list!!! The candlesticks themselves are from Woodcrafter, & then they are painted with Montana Gold Spray paint which can be bought from Dick Blick. Easy enough!!! & another project that is relatively cheap!}

2. More orange accents
So the orange chevron nightstand turned out amazingly!
But other than that orange all I have are 2 vases with orange flowers.
Which, don't get me wrong, are great accents but it is just not enough for my liking!
So I have a few ideas in mind:
Orange Chevron Frame
{Note: how amazing would this be!? This picture frame is by Campbell & Co. It would correspond to the orange chevron night stand... & it's only $10. I think this is something I'm going to buy FORSURE as in probably I'll buy it tomorrow. Sorry checking account. I'll make up for it someday when I am racking in the dough ;) This shop is awesome though, they have the cutest rings that are only $5! I might have to purchase one of those too.. & they even have orange chevron coasters. It's love at first sight}

Peach Mum Ring
Orange Chevron: Ceramic Coasters
Orange Damask Decorative Pillow Covers 20 x 20 Inches Sweet Potato Orange on Natural
Floral Pillows Blue and Coral Throw Pillow Covers  20 x 20 Inches
{Note: these orange pillows are from Festive Home Decor & they are an amazing Etsy vendor! I bought some chevron print pillows from them & I am just obsessed with all their designs! I would highly recommend checking out their shop. Especially because not only do they have some of the best designs I've ever seen, but they are so affordable!!}
3. Revamp my dresser
I know my dresser is brand new & all, but it is by far the boring-est thing ever to look at.
It's just plain white & has nothing special about it.
& after seeing this I am slightly obsessed & drooling... overlaybefore.jpg
{Note: these art project pictures are from Ohdeedoh & I am just drooling at how awesome it turned out & really am going to attempt something like this because I love this look! It is done using something called O'verlays by Danika CheryleThe best part about them is they are affordable!!! Ahhhh!!!!! But seriously I am obsessed.}

4. More wall decor
One idea I have is using magazines & artsy pictures that I like & getting a bunch of them & then getting a bunch of white or black frames & framing them to make something like this:
{Note: this picture is from NL Designs. & let me tell you, once I found this girl's blog I was hooked. Not only is her name also Nicole, although she spells it Nichole... but she has incredible style! I love everything on her site!! And I definitely envy her living space & some of her work. She is an inspiration & I would recommend checking out her site!}
Target Bright Patterns Tile
{Note: these are from Target! They are super fun... I wonder if this would be an easy DIY project?}

Target is awesome - those don't look like they would be cheap at all but the add so much great color to the wall. And those big pot holders underneath the table are to die for. Love that lime green!
