It was fun though, if that matters to you :)
What I can share with you pictorially is my perusings of Pottery Barn... in other words, what I will be scouring flea markets and garage sales for at a fraction of the cost :)
1) a chippy old mantle for over our bed.
2) oh. our future dining room is DYING for that awesome ladder w/ various lanterns hanging from it.
3) an old hotel organizer? yes please! perfect for craft room...
4)now, these books tied with a bow are darling. however in my house Braddock would do his own 'distressing job'... to an unrecognizable point... we know from experience. You'll know when I show you his little renovations to our house...
Anyhoot, those cute little books would have to go else where.
5) This is not PB, I snagged it somewhere online... oops sorry!
LOVE those upholstered chairs and
see in the background? Above the white buffet? LOVE those chippy mirror frames!
'Member when I told you about my Anthro coloring book? THIS is what I was talking about! But more. And different sizes. I'll be on the hunt!
And in case it isn't clear... my mind is REELING with homey coziness because we're house hunting! In fact, we've put an offer on one. If you've done this before, you know it's SO not a sure thing 'til closing day... so we'll see! I'll let you in on the journey with us! It's been SO fun!
May your home be project-full and boredom free!
On snow day #6 in a 20 day period, being cooped up in our teeennnyyy little house with a biiiggg Punk Puppy... the Born house motto is:
What doesn't kill ya will make ya stronger...
Peace, love, warmth, and to-do lists...
