Throughout the year I always pick up pieces I like at shops, flea markets, etc. I hold onto them until the mood to decorate strikes me. That usually happens a few times a year. (meanwhile my kids are saying, "here she goes again") while I'm running around with hammer, nails and stuff! Anyway, the past few weeks I've been at it again and thought I would share a few photos. My house is a small cape so there really aren't a whole lot of spaces to decorate but I try ...
This picture is one of my favorites that I've had forever. I found the wood valence at Brimfield, loved it, but had no idea where I would put it. I think this works.
I love original, chippy paint. To me it's the ultimate in shabby chic. This was a great find a while back. I added the mirror the other day behind the chandelier to dress it up a little and make it all pop.
My mantel has been boring for a long time. I added a few more pieces I picked up at our shop to add to it. I had hung the garland for a photo then decided to leave it there. I think it needs a little more ... I'm sure I'll find a few more things in my travels.
This is a little built in bookshelf area that I just needed a few more pieces for ... I added the garland and the two architectural pieces.
I got a flat screen t.v. for my birthday to replace the outdated monster that used to be there. Eventhough the black is still a big eyesore in the room, I was able to use a daintier piece of furniture to display it. I still need to find a way to hide the outlet and black cord. I added the oval mirror above to take your eye away from it a bit.
This is a chippy paint frame in pink that I found in Brimfield. I love it! Ironically, it is the same pink as the chippy paint frame I had hanging in this spot already. It really finished the whole thing I had going on there.
