Happy Monday, all! It was a busy weekend, so I didn’t really get much of anything done on the house. There were more important things to do, like celebrate my amazing grandmother’s 104th birthday!
She’s an incredible woman, and I wish each of you could meet her in person. I wrote a post about her when she turned 99. She’s been through so much in her life, and wasn’t expected to live past her early 60’s when she suffered 3rd degree burns over 54% of her body in a house fire, but she beat the odds. You can read my post about her here.
Anyway, with that and some other things going on, I didn’t give the house much thought other than looking at monogram ideas for my dining chairs, and coming up with a few that I liked for my chairs. I think at this point, I’ve seen every single monogrammed chair that exists on the whole of the internet. 😀 And in all of that, I decided that I like the simple designs the best. This is one of my favorites, but it could just be the combo of colors and patterns that caught my attention. And the white monogram on the coral color is pretty close to what mine will look like.
So after playing around with some different ideas, and combining different monogram design elements that I found online, here are the six that I came up with as possibilities:
As you can see, all but one use the same monogram style. My two favorites are the bottom two, but I hesitate to use anything with leaves/vines/flowers because I just think I already have enough of that with my entryway wall mural and the floral fabric I’ll be using on the backs of the host dining chairs. But I could be making more of an issue of it than it really is. Of the other four, I’m really not sure which one is my favorite. I think the Greek key might be my least favorite. It looks a little busy to me.
So I don’t know for sure which one I’ll end up with yet, but I’m about 99% sure it’ll be one of these.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
