Things have been very busy around here, it has been project on top of project. I am loving it. Nothing makes me happier than to pull together something I have been designing in my head. This week I will be sharing with you a pair of mirrors that I gilded, changing simple pulls from pewter to gold (it's easier than I thought), using oil based paint (holy cow! so different from latex paint) and I think I'm going to make all my pillows from now on using the envelope method (why haven't I done this before?).
The above bookshelf is one of my favorite pieces in our house. Mostly because I can do so many different things with it. I found that big globe on top on our trip to Lincoln City. I found it at the local Goodwill. I can't believe how many silly comments I received while I was walking around with it. I found some vintage post cards and I put them in little Ikea frames. Such a simple and cheap way to have some fun art. Then to keep things clean and modern, I stacked the books and added a mini vintage globe and coral. Finally, I picked up that white yarn hippopotamus at Target. All done! Now, I have a new look for my favorite piece of furniture and a design element that I enjoy seeing every day. See how easy that is?
