New dishes…the gateway to redecorating…

So we’ve been talking about redecorating…We’ve planned, we’ve visualized, we’ve sought out materials, but somehow it just didn’t seem to be happening.

That is until our trip to Ikea today. I like to call Ikea, the Disney World of home decorating. Have you been?

So as we strolled through my new favorite store, we sat on coaches, opened cabinets, and made some notes. The image was becoming real to us. And then it happened…

We entered the section that housed the dishes! We wanted black dishes to go with what would be our elegant black and white somewhat European themed living area. We had talked about getting square dishes over the traditional round ones. And wouldn’t you know it…There they were.

As we got the dishes home, we recognized that we were embarking on our mission. Sometimes you have to go from envisioning to acting. Yes, we still have painting ahead of us, as well as refinishing the floors, purchasing the sofa and perhaps love seat, new tables…The list goes on. But by investing in our dishes we got the proverbial ball rolling.

And so it begins…

Stay groovy…
