Valentine’s Day Decor

I’ve never been the one to decorate my house for the different seasons or holidays, but after Christmas was over, I really missed having those decorations.  I am going to start buying cute little things this year for different seasons and holidays.  Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I bought some cute little LOVE blocks.  These are cute for the mantle. I also might take them in the RV if I go somewhere around Valentine’s Day.  They’re not too thick, so I can put something behind it if I want.  I wish I could have found more stuff on Amazon, so I wouldn’t have to actually go to the store to find holiday decor.

I also got little red throw pillow covers for the couch. I couldn’t find any already made pillows so I had to buy the pillows to go inside. I want to put some square pillows in front of these that say LOVE or something else Valentinesy in front of the ones I have.  I think later today I’ll head to Hobby Lobby and get some more stuff!

Pillow covers

We got a new gray couch about a year ago. It came with four throw pillows, but it really needed four more.  I had four pillows on my old couch that didn’t match the new couch, but I’ve used those pillows anyway.  I finally decided to get some new pillow cases.  I love the textures on these and they go with the pillows that came with the couch.

Picture this

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this wall.  I really didn’t want to put a big picture there because it leaves too much open space.  I decided to do a picture wall.  This is almost finished.  I’ve since added two more pictures to the left, but I need one more for the bottom row, so they aren’t included in this picture.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out though.  

New Floors!!!

Floors before we arranged our furniture

Ever since we built our house I’ve regretted not getting hard woods in our family room. I’m not even sure why we didn’t get them to begin with.  Carpets get so nasty with all the build up, especially with dogs. Even when my carpet cleaner was being used every week, the carpet would start getting grimy looking.

We finally took the plunge and replaced the carpet with wood floors.  We chose bamboo flooring because we heard it’s really strong and that’s good for people with dogs.  We decided we wanted to do this about 3 months ago, but I had trouble deciding what to get. We got the flooring at Floor and Decor after going from place to place, looking at options, colors, pricing, etc.

The floor guy came in and did the whole thing in one day. They did such a great job.  I’m so excited about how they look!  If you need someone to come do your floors, I recommend Scott Feller at 512-801-8966.  His crew was excellent!  He also does roofing. Now, I’m mad that I didn’t go ahead and replace the carpet in my bedroom. I think that may be next!!
