Take a Peek Inside: The Library Dispute

Some differences have risen over the interior design of the library.

Comments like, "It's a little abstract for me" and,

"I don't know how I feel having my face on the furniture" kind of comments.

I've been loving the challenge. Bobby and I have similar taste, but as he recently stated, "Our tastes are starting to veer (turn sharply; change direction abruptly) apart."

Yes, my taste is constantly changing, which is exactly why I want to live up every stage of my transformation.

The down low of the "extreme"room:

Couch: recovered with my Granny's fabric with staple gun.

Pillows: Appliqued our silhouettes from the etchings I did for our wedding invitations. (A bit of a challenge staring at a 1.5 inch head of my and Bobby.

Lamps: Colonial brass hand-me-downs I sprayed with pewter-looking metal spray.

Wall Hanging: repurposed canvas draped in fabric.

I prepared Bobby I would be taking a poll: so what do you think?

Abstract? Pffff! I LOVE it! :)

love it :)

I love it, especially the wall hanging. But I have to admit I'd probably agree with Bobby on the "staring at my face on the furniture" thing. But I love the creativity.

Love it!!!! But I am also a huge fan of abstract, so that might make me bias :)

I love your wall hanging, and I love your new couch cover. I cannot believe it was all done with a staple gun. I Love the colors in your home.

Your pillows are creative, and they definitely reflect what you love...BOBBY! You should make silluette pillows of the girls on the art room couch.

I love having you and Bobby on your pillows....you are the royalty of your home, and bust's are always made of the head's of the house hold and put in the home for all to see.

I love the wall art! I like the pillows, but think you should definitely add the kiddos!

I think the room has great bones. I love the chunky bookshelves and orange couch. Hmmmm, not sure about the pillows. Definitely something I wouldn't do, but hey, it's your house! Do what you want.
