If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

When given license by B Daddy to buy the dining room lights I had been coveting for years - I had a feeling this little project might snowball into a redecorating frenzy of "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" proportions.



If you give a mouse a cookie....
He's going to ask for a glass of milk.

And if you give a mouse a glass of milk...
He'll probably want a straw.

And if you give him a straw...well, you get the picture.

Because our family room and dining room are really one big living space and we've now started in on the dining room, I am feeling the need to "do" both rooms at once.

If you give Katie a new pair of lights above her dining room table...
She's going to think her table needs to be moved to be centered beneath them.

And if you center the dining room table beneath these lights...
Her sideboard is going to look out of scale.

If you decide to replace the sideboard...
The artwork hanging above it will need to be replaced as well.

And if you change your artwork...
You should probably re-paint the walls of the living area to match.

If you re-paint the walls of your living area...
Your old couches are going to look shabby in their spruced up environment.

And if you replace your shabby couches...
You might as well replace the rug they are holding down with something more kid-friendly.

If you get a new kid-friendly rug...
You should get a kid-friendly coffee table while you're at it.

AND if you do all of the above...
You're going to need curtains, accessories and a large budget to boot.
