Today I am going to show you what it's really like behind the scenes at Miss Information! Many times especially at the holidays you see DIY bloggers post beautiful pictures of their homes. I often see people make comments “if they had all the time in the world their house would look that good as well”. Then I hear people say that “Pinterest intimidates them and they don't feel like they can live up to what is on there, who has the time for that?”
What you have to realize is that this is our job! I can guarantee you that when a blogger puts up a beautiful room photo it's not because she lives like that it's because she has cleaned, primped and worked tirelessly to get it that way for the photographs. Then it's back to normal life.
I have gotten together with a few other bloggers to give you a taste of what it really looks like behind the scenes! (Mom if you are reading this now close your eyes because it may give you a heart attack!)
First let me show you my desk in my office!
You can see over to the right my glue gun and the desk caddy I was getting ready to decorate with glitter and Modge Podge. In the back is a printable I made for Valentines. And on the floor is a project I started for Christmas and never finished!
You can also see a box of left over Martha Stewart craft products I used to make this etched glass project.
I am now redecorating my living room and can't wait to get it done but here is what it looks like now; paint test swatches, fabric for curtains laying out, my light box is on the ottoman. The leather chair is one I have waited a year for my husband to take to our basement.
Next to my living room is my dining room. It has become a catch-all for props, back grounds, and all my paint gear that I will be painting the living room with soon.
So when you look at pretty pictures like this…
Just remember what is all around it is all this chaos! We don't really live in ivory towers where everything is perfectly in its place. If you want to see how other bloggers live just check out the links below!
