I'll take a Merlot please

I'm still not feeling well, the cardiologist thinks I have Pericarditis. It's basically inflammation of the membrane that surrounds your heart. It should be getting better but i still have a lot of pain and I'm so short of breath it's hard to do anything. Well, I shall try not to dwell on that. Let's move on to my house, I can plan all the fun stuff.
Home decor:
This is the current state of affairs in the master bedroom.
The floor is actually in pretty good shape, the early 90's ceiling fan makes me feel icky. Right now all the walls and ceiling are white. Darn near everything in the house is white, it reminds me of my apartment.

The Mr. really likes the color "Merlot" (his words, not mine) and really wanted to do something like that for our bedroom.

So this is the current inspiration picture, but with the color a bit more on the burgundy side. I can't remember what it is called, probably some fancy Frenchy wine name. I love the white crown molding. Now the question is, what do I do for the floors? We have those nice hardwoods and not much money to speak of. I also need to find a better ceiling fan, as much as I loathe ceiling fans I don't think I will win the battle to remove it. White? That's my guess for now. I guess I'll just have to take a nice walk through Lowe's and Ikea! I do love those places, its like new home heaven.

Welcome to my little space on the web! I have always used my Myspace blog, but I figured now is the time to move on to bigger and better things. I'm into crafts, cooking, science and getting my life in order! I'm engaged to a wonderful man, getting married next year. We look forward to getting our first house in order and getting ready to build our family. My blogs will probably revolve around my attempts at putting together a home, and making it ours!

This is my new little home, it looks cuter in person though. We close June 16, so excited!!
