Dreaming….of the Beach

My husband and I are part owners of a condo in Corpus Christi, Texas.  It is small but on the top floor (9th) overlooking the ocean. We spend most of our time on the deck sitting with binoculars watching the ships and beach goers.  Those of you that know me or have been there, know how frustrated I am with the interior. It is in terrible need of updating! My husband and his business partner bought it before we married and as it goes with partnerships..not everyone wants the same things. I love to decorate and they love that it is furnished with old, worn-out furniture and could care less if it gets updated. Now don’t get me wrong, they are wonderful people, they just aren’t into it! So in a week or so we are headed there and I made the decision that with or without them, I was changing things!!!! So on a MAJOR budget I am doing a make-over. If it all works out I will post before and after pictures. Honestly, I am embarrassed to post the before pictures….oh my…..it is bad!!! Anyway, here are some great beach house ideas from Coastal Living. I can dream…can’t I?
