I have to confess that Southwestern style homes are not my favorite. I dream of living in a bee-you-tee-ful Victorian home with wood floors, moldings, character, and green grass. (actually any grass would be good!)
But what can I do? I live in the Southwest, in the middle of the desert, and I have been trying really hard to count my many blessings, (name them one by one:) and fall in love with my Casa in New Mexico!:)
One cool feature many Southwestern homes have are the Niches. They are all over the place. The natives call them nichos, which makes me think of nachos which inturn makes me hungry. I think we are in need of a nacho night girlfriends!!! Holla!!
Anywho, I have been having a hard time figuring out what to do with these little recesses in my wall!
The above niche, nicho, nacho, had been that way until I got ahold of some Deep Walnut paint! (Valspar from Lowe's)
Did you know you can blow up your pictures poster size at Sam's Club for 12 bucks? You heard me right my friends. I have blown up pictures all over my house! The bigger the better I always say!:)
So now every morning when I am getting ready, I get to see my cute little princesses looking down on me from my Niche! I think it turned out pretty good, better then before anyway. The painting did not stop there, I have gone a little crazy with the Deep Walnut. Hubby is going to be so surprised when he comes home from his week long business trip! You gotta keep things new and exciting right? I will show you the results soon!
Only 3 more niches to figure out what to do with. I have searched high and low for the perfect thing to put in these suckers in my courtyard for 2 years!!! I need your ideas!!!! Till next time mi amigos:)
