Making Your House Work for You

Making your house work for you
I haven't quite figured out how to do it yet, but I know your house doesn't have to be in shambles just because you have kids! I recently was sent a copy of "Southern Living Style" and it has some great ideas in it. I like the Shabby Chic look because you can paint and reuse older items. That way it's okay if the kids get a nick in it or scratch it.
I really like the combination rooms in the book. (BTW, it's a massive hard cover book, not a magazine.) They take older and newer items and make them work together. If I had more time, I would go garage sale hopping every weekend in the fall. You can find some great, unique items that can be repainted. This book gave me some new ideas!
And I hate to admit it, but I love the bright green wallpaper with white flowers all over it! I know it sounds strange and wallpaper is so awful to remove, but I am really thinking about putting up wall paper in my living room. I am inspired to finally get some of the rooms completed in my house. It's just something I haven't made a priority since we moved to this house in 2009.
Just so you know, I normally don't do reviews of products. I get hundreds of requests a month and I think it would be too tedious and get boring for you guys. But for some reason, I decided to check this one out.
