It's been freezing cold this entire week and besides the occasional grocery store run, I have been cooped up inside the house. This has happened a lot this past winter and when it does, I usually start redecorating & rearranging around the house. I'm sure I'm not alone in that! I have a long wall that my couch rests up against and I've struggled with what I should hang there. The wall has housed old barn windows, a wooden ladder, a couple pictures but it needed something else, something "heavier" looking. I had a Pottery Barn ledge hanging over my bed for awhile, but it has since been moved to the basement. My thought was to hang it above the couch. The best part of this mantel is that I get to decorate it!
Back in January, I decorated a little blank wall in the beginning of my house. I wanted something woodsy, and borderline masculine. (This was, of course, before my spring fever kicked in later that month) The decor has since changed, but I never showed you guys some pictures of this little space.
The cubby organizer is from Ross (I got it about a little over a year ago) and it's almost a dead knock off for Pottery Barn's cubby organizer. This cubby organizer has withstood three moves so far, and it's holding up great! My cubby decor varies by season, but for this spot I embraced the rustic feel. When my husband and I are on road trips or vacation, we always try to look for a cool, unique piece that might fit well in a cubby. Here are some pictures of that little entry space. =)
It was one of those Tuesdays where I needed to put away a GOOD couple loads of laundry, and I found every sort of distraction that enabled me NOT to do it. I cleaned, organized, moved things around.... repainted my table legs. Normal, right? I didn't think I'd get this project started for another couple of weeks, but when I'm avoiding the clean laundry hampers (yes, that was plural), I will find any task that deems more important. So what if the hubby has to dig through the clean laundry hamper to find a pair of socks for work...this table HAS to be painted!! Yes, those were my thoughts exactly.
About two weeks ago, I posted my table inspiration on my blog and my theme is something I like to call "white chippy goodness." This was my first time distressing table legs, so please do not judge to harshly! . I think down the road I might distress it a tad more, but for now, I like how it looks.
This blog follows my love for family, design & entertaining!
