Channeling Martha

I realized that after I posted all my new year's resolutions...I decided I had more.

I mean, it's ok if you have like 20 or so resolutions, right?

New Year...a year to do whatever your little heart desires...that's the way I look at it.

So, what does my heart desire you may ask...besides Matthew McConaughey or just a tall, God-fearing, OSU LOVING, Two-stepping, southern man??
(if you know of one, please send him my way)

Well...it's pinterest.

Yes, my heart desires to FINALLY make all those DIY projects I have in my board. Mainly the ones where I re-do my bedroom.

I have been wanting to re-do my bedroom for quite sometime now, actually I never really decorated when I moved in. I have lived in my house now for 4 years. You would think at some point I would have decorated my room.

I guess it's hard, because I still rent...yes, I know..I am just throwing money into the air...I think maybe this could be the year I buy a house?? You never know.

Anyway, back to the matter at hand...my bedroom and pinterest.

Here are a few bedrooms I have pinned

I like classic and feminine.

Things that I want:

An upholstered headboard.

Tufted Headboard Oatmeal Queen
An Anthropologie duvet

So, since one of my main resolutions is to save a little cha-ching, cha-ching...I've taken to pinterest...

in hopes to make these

I am going to channel my inner Martha...not the Martha that goes to jail, but the Martha that sews and cooks and stuff.

Also, I will probably end up recruiting my mom and maybe try and convince my nana to drive up here...I need all the help I can get with le sewing machine.

Wish me luck ladies!
