I was trying to find a before picture, but I guess I didn't take any for my winter decorating. :/
After: I want Steve to build me a footstool for my chair still. See the brown in the bottom left corner. That's the new couch that I haven't showed you yet. Steve bought it because he said he was tired of looking at mine and it was starting to sag really bad. It was bittersweet taking my baby to the Goodwill. After all I had it for probably close to 10 years or more.
I took my candles out of the window because... see the spot in the middle of the carpet??? Yeah, my candle fell out of the window while we were gone and burnt a spot in the carpet. So this is a WARNING!!!! Thank goodness it was a low wattage bulb!!!!
I just saw my son's Ipod AND the paddle lol. No, I don't use this on my kids. It used to be my son's Dad's paddle when he was younger and I just haven't given it back yet. I laid it there to remember to give it to my son when he goes to his Dad's. Oh and of course the newest trend for your prim decor... a goldfish.
I'm thinking the jars won't be staying here. I have another idea already. I LOVE my new candle in a jar in the upper right of the picture. I will show you the inspiration for it. I already had the candle shelf, but I bought the glass cylinder at the flea market for $.75.
Inspiration... The Workshop of David T. Smith gorgeous pictures!!!!!
I just LOVE their candle holder hanging on the peg rack AND of course the whole kitchen!!!
Pieces going to the booth... the black cupboard... again not sure if I'm ready to part with it. I may be able to if Steve will build me something like it only with a tombstone cut out for the top.
And the green bookshelf... I need to fix a few things on it though first because I forgot to "prim" up one of the legs on it. lol
I already have a plan for the dining room I think. This room is going to take quite a bit of time because I have all my winter greenery piled on the dining table from the living room. I need Steve to get down my totes off of a shelf in the garage so I can put them away. I've decided to put up a year round German twig tree in my dining room where my corner cupboard was. Ok, at least for now I'm going too, lol. I have a wonderful idea if I can pull it off. We'll see because it would entail me crafting some ornies and such. Hopefully after today I will be able to show you my other redo Steve helped me with because I'm putting it in the dining room . I'll try to post it this weekend. Have a great day and see you soon :-)
