Hello everyone! We had a beautiful day here today 63 and sunny, it felt so good to have the sun out all day long. So today we cleaned the back patio, power washed the outside walls and floor and put down my outside rug that I found at Lowes for $40.00 this past February:) I’ll show pictures when we are done with it.
Yesterday though I took everything off my shelves and mantel plus coffeetable , I had read The Nesters one post, it’s here if you would like to read it, so I thought I’d give it a try…here it is, everything on the couch and diningroom table, I didn’t show that because I didn’t want to scare any of you just think piled with stuff plus laptop and camera plus pictures all over it that I had printed out:0
The fireplace, the sorriest thing in my livingroom, I got the go ahead to paint the brick but now I’m afraid to even try, you see we are having a wedding/picnic on July 9th for my stepdaughter Jennifer and alot of people will be here! I just don’t want to ruin it and there’s that wood burner that I have a love/hate relationship with 1. It cuts the heating bill in half 2. It’s just plain ugly!!!
This is what I put back on it, I don’t like the mirror from Target but I have nothing else to put there that looks good, I’m on the look out for something, I think though if the brick were painted white it would look alot better.
I put my coffee wreath back because I like it there the best.
Changed the end table a bit, see the turtle?
I bought him in Jamaica, he was $40.00 but I got him for $15.00. I found two other ones that were handmade and I’ll have to take pictures of them to show you!
I put the same things back on my coffeetable, like it, see the leopard, tile coaster? Dollar Tree has them and I bought two one for here and for the other end table, oh, and they have rooster ones too if you want to take a look!
My desk I kept the same too.
I changed my blue cupboard though and added some glass, looking at it in real life I like it, in this picture I don’t LOL I do need to add something on the 2nd shelf there I see I only have 4 items so I have to make it an odd number right?
The suitcase I found at the flea market for $5.00 and the planter GW…the bottle is from PB!
Remember this wall in the hall I talked about in a recent post? Well, I figured I’d put something there until I find the thing that I really love, I put pictures of us on our different vacations New York City, Jamaica ,Riviera Mia Mexico plus the K from PB. I like it and it does give some interest to the wall instead of it being blank and undone looking.
Did you see the little picture there in the first picture of the hallway? I found it at GW for .99 fits this little space so well! Love robins, they are the first sign of spring around here.
I don’t know if I’ll leave it this way, some I like and some I don’t but it sure was fun trying:)
