Meanwhile, at #ProjectLemonade...

...Absolutely nothing has happened.  Seriously, no updates.  Except maybe that the dishes have been done.  Sometimes.  It's been a bit of a whirlwind since the start of the year and I'm hoping that things are finally settling down.  Fingers crossed. 

Let's talk about my goals for 2014. 
  • Lose 5 pounds. 
  • Get a rock hard body with minimal (read: zero) effort. 
  • Meet Alexander Skarsgard, fall madly in love and become Mrs. Skarsgard. 
  • Live happily ever after.

Seriously?!?  This man is PERFECTION

But let's get back to realistic house goals, shall we?  I would like to get started on my formal living room and office, which I have slotted for the Spring version of the One Room Challenge Linking Party (cannot wait!).  I have some b.a.d. before pictures that I will share with you soon.  Be prepared to cringe. 

In the meantime, I plan to finish my family room.  Well, not really finish as we all know that design never stops.  I guess I would just like to finally get some pillows on my sofa.  I had some.  Then changed my mind because I got a yard of this fabric.  Nicolette Day by Domesticate on Spoonflower.  It's my jam.

And I'd like to finally finish the vintage Weiman pagoda cabinets I am using as an entertainment center.  Why haven't you done so, you ask?  Well, because when I am not 100% sure of a choice, I stop.  All forward movement ceases.  I clam up and do nothing to finish the project and, normally, move on to something else.  Call it decorating ADD if you'd like.  I prefer to think of it as being choosey.  Ooh, or even patient as I wait for inspiration to strike. 

Can you believe I am showing you this picture?  Me either.

As it has been months and I have had zero epiphanies, I recently took to Instagram to ask my fantastic followers what they thought I should do the back of the pagodas.  I was given tons of options and have done a mock-up of some of my favorites.  I'd love to know what you'd choose.

Well, what say you? 


  1. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

  2. First: I think grass-cloth is the way to go. Second: You don't need to lose 5 pounds. Third: I don't think that guy likes females. Happy New Year!

  3. I made an audible gasp when I saw Skarsgard's face show up in my blog reader. He is divine! I want one of my very own. Also, loving the tortoiseshell majorly.

  4. OMGEEEEE ... what about mirrors?

  5. Oh - and LOVE that fabric! It has little parrots on it! :)

  6. The grass cloth looks great, but oh I also love the pink! I know whatever you do will be fab!

  7. I'm thinking I'm in love with your new fabric. Deep love.

  8. I love that fabric, and can't wait to see the family room done! Your changing up your living room? But it's already super gorgeous Kimber?! Yes, I think you have decorating "ADD" ;-)! LOL! As for your gorgeous Pagoda cabinets, like I mentioned on IG, I would not put anything permanent. Paint the backing yes, but I would use foamboard wrapped in a gorgeous fabric or gift wrap so it will be easy to change it up, especially with your 'condition', this will be easy remedy for frequent redecorators like us!

  9. Yes to the guy, I really don't care what 'team' he plays for. No to the 5lbs....who cares about 5lbs? Yes to the paint..you have way too much design add for wallpaper. Yes to the fabric. I love it.

  10. love the fabric, love the dude and love the cabinets.
    You seem to have read my mind completely. I have been in a complete decorating funk since the ORC and because I can't seem to make a single decision on anything I do absolutely nothing instead. I took down Christmas and have put nothing back up because I can't decide what I should do. So I do NOTHING. Guess I just need a little more ORC in my life.

  11. I am leaning toward grasscloth or paint. I would think anything else has the possibility to fight with the contents. They are really fabulous.
