Lately, I’ve been going in about ten different directions with projects around the house, and none of them are quite ready to share. I’ve managed to finish removing the grout in the green bathroom shower, but I have not had time to regrout and recaulk it yet. It’s on the list! I’m making progress on a few other projects that had seemingly stalled out, so more on that later too. Meanwhile, lets take a look at this awesome Shag print, entitled “Elephant” that I bought myself for Christmas as a “congrats for finally finishing the pink bathroom project” gift.
With my Shag print collection growing, I made the decision to limit myself to one Shag print per zone in the house — you know, so they don’t compete with each other — and so I know when to stop buying them. This one fit really well in the space at the end of the hallway, which is great because since I work from home and my office is also at the end of the hall, which means I see it every time I return from a kitchen coffee/water break.
I just had to have this print for a few reasons. It is predominately pink and you know how I love pink. It has my favorite tiki themed decor accessory in it — the puffer fish light — which is even cooler now that I’m getting all excited to go to Hukilau in June! Lastly, it depicts a pink elephant wearing a suit and having cocktails. What’s not to love?
Hanging up some new art reminds me how much I want to paint the hallway and actual color. It is currently some sort of greige. Yuck. Alas, there are far more pressing projects going on — like that whole shower without grout thing — so it will probably be quite a while before the hall sees any more decorating action. At least it will have a hip, pink elephant to keep it company until then, right?
