It’s amazing how new little touches can brighten up a space and make you smile! I’ve added a few new pieces into my home that are both new (HomeGoods) and from the thrift store.
The newer pieces are a bright blue painting in my foyer (painted in Poised Taupe link HERE), plus some new picture frames. I am enjoying the darker color in the foyer as colors really pop and I wanted a more modern and bright picture for the wall above the Hungarian Chest. The blue works perfectly and at only $39.00, not a bad deal! The picture frames were $5.99 each and perfect for my family photos.
I also found this very tiny planter at the thrift store. It was $1.50 and yes, it is so little but so sweet!
And the last addition is from the craft store. While at HomeGoods, I saw very pretty glass vases with fake flowers glued into the base. They were $20 which was a bit steep. Ella and I went to ACMoore and for less than $8.00 created our own version.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that 🙂
Looks very pretty! And that dresser is to die for!!
Thanks Kelly! That dresser was a great score!
How nice! A few changes can make a big difference. AWESOME THAT YOU INCLUDE YOUR DAUGHTER IN THE PROCESS; MANY GOOD LESSONS FOR HER AND GOOD BONDING TIME WITH MOM. THANKS FOR SHARING.
Thanks Jeannie! I do enjoy including my kids!
love what you did with the flowers! Is that the whole bottle of glue in the vase. It looks great! Also love the painting!
Thanks, Mary! Yes it is a whole bottle and is still drying lol! I likely should have looked for something else to use but it is slowly working!
Your foyer looks so inviting! I love the Hungarian chest.
Love love love all of your work! I have a question and was wondering if you would be able to answer it for Me, I am in the process of redoing my dining set along with buffet & hutch with chalk paint in old white, and so for the table top I was thinking a darker color or should I stain it? I am at a point where I don’t really know which is better …. any help and recommendations would be awesom.
Hi Paulette, Well, without seeing it, I would suggest staining the top. You can apply General Finishes Gel Stain over previously stained wood and I have a YouTube video on the process. Best of luck!
