Good Evening my friends! I love Christmas and the New Year, but I am so glad the holidays are over. I am ready to settle down to just plain normal.
I hope everyone is doing great! I have been visiting around blog land to see what ideas I can borrow from others. There are some really creative people out there in blogland.
I wanted to post some of the tweaking I have been doing this week in the house. I don't know why, but everything I did I am not quite satisfied with. I guess I am in a mood. So you may see some more tweaking in the near future.
For now I hope you enjoy and leave comments and suggestions.
Projects I did today!
As you view the photos you will see how I utilized some of the projects I completed today. I was in spray paint heaven.
I decided to change out the look of the mantle after Christmas. The candle sticks I had there before and decided to keep them on the mantle The two transfer ware plates are Staffordshire England. Since I had a nautical print on the wall above the fireplace, I thought the plates would fit right in to the decor.
The lantern is a yard sale find that I painted. The faux books I use to have on the credenza. I shopped the house for skinny candlestick.
I love the rose print hanging on the wall. I was so glad to be able to find these roses to match the print. The vase they are in came from a yard sale. The candlesticks I was going to paint them today, but decided I liked them just as they were. I cleaned them up with some polish and placed the little birdies on top. They were a dollar for the pair at the yard sale.
The lamps I like, but not on this credenza. I feel they are too big for the piece of furniture. But the hubby likes the look,so I kept them there just for him.
This what I did with the top of the entertainment center. I love the Champagne bucket with the flowers. I do not like the silver bowl in the center with the pine cones I am at a loss of what to do with the middle as I can not block the view of the television.
I found the book at Marshalls today. The fennel thing I had and the candle sticks. I already had the bird. The candle stick the bird is setting on , was gold, but of course it is now Oil Rubbed Bronze.
If anyone has any suggestions of what I can do to make this entertainment center look more attractive, please give me some ideas. I have tweaked this thing a million times and never like what I do completely.
This is photos of the things in our entry hall. I plan to change it all out at some point with some new pieces of furniture. But for now the furniture I have will have to do.
I found this table at Salvation Army. I bought the lamp and the other tall thingie at Kirklands.
I found the flower arrangement on the little table at a yard sale for a dollar.
This is the print hanging over the little table in the entry hall. Its a very cheap print from Family Dollar. I intend to change it when I find something nice I really like.
I found this star at Marshalls today, it was on clearance for four dollars. It is made out recycled paper. I thought it was ugly as it was, so I painted it of course, my favorite spray paint Oil Rubbed Bronze..........ahhhhhhh much better!
There was on yard sale this past Saturday. I paid five dollars. I would not normally spend more than three dollars for something like this, but I caved on this one.
