Changes

I mentioned recently I moved a few things around my house and thought I would give you a looksie.

Here is where my Nana's wingback used to be, but I was so sick of seeing it covered in a blanket (it needs to be re-upholstered) that I moved it to our master where I won't be giving it the stink eye all day. I brought out this white chair that had been in Kara's nursery. I wasn't using it much in there anymore, so I figured I would try it out. I plopped on a pillow I got for $3 at Kohl's. That's right, only 3 snaps, they have amazing clearance there sometimes. The green lamp is killing me now that I switched things up, so I need to find a new one to go there. Something like this.

I also scaled the gallery wall way down. It ended up being too much for me visually. I spray painted the brown frames white for a more cohesive look, but decided to leave the gold frames for a little bling.

In my big white frame, I switched out the artwork to this swatch of wallpaper I bought at Targhetto a while ago (holla at my girl Debbie for that nickname).

Did a new little layout on top of the curio.

I purchased new candlesticks for the mantle, also at Targhetto, for a mere $4 and $5 each on clearance! Oh man, I am a clearance whore aren't I? Whatevs, at least I admit it.

Lastly, I bought this little beauty at Walmart of all places. I love oak trees and I love black and white photography, so I couldn't pass this winning combo up no matter where it came from.

I'm too lazy to upload before pics, so if you want to check them out, look at my posts here and here

  5. The updates look great -- thanks so much for sharing them.

    (And, of course, I love that you incorporated Targhetto into the post. I expect you to work Homie Depot into a future post.)

  7. Fun changes! What is that blueish wallcolor? I like it a lot!

    I think the green lamp could be spruced up with a pretty new shade (maybe in a soft green and lavender pattern?). But I do like the one you linked to :)
