So, I have SO many stripes going on in my house (and I am completely happy with that!), but I thought…. what about the polka dots?? They need a little love, too! Polka dots can be a really fun and easy way to add whimsy, drama, or texture to a room!
YAY! It’s finished and I can finally put the pictures up! Several people have posted about making and upholstering benches, chairs, etc… so I figured I would try my hand at it. My wonderful husband helped… a lot! =) We made and covered a bench! Black and white hounds tooth, you can’t go wrong with this classic look! Read The Rest
OK…. it took me waaaaaayy to long to get these posted! But here they are! Finally! This is the dining room put back together after painting the red walls. Yes, there is still so much work to be done in here, but as I said before it will have to be done a little at a time…. and I am SO NOT patient!
By the way… I got this table and the four chairs at Ikea for $100 when I got married in 2007. Still love the table (even though it’s a bit small for company!) AND I picked up this wooden candelabra at a Cracker Barrel. It was a part of their Halloween stuff last year and I got it 80% off… it was like $4 or something like that. I love it! I’m kicking my self for not buying more of them. They would have been fun to decorate with for a party! I wonder how easy they would be to make….. Hhmmmm….
Now I need to find something to cover this lovely thing right smack in the middle of the wall…. yes, I know… it’s terrible. I do have my eye on a big round clock at hobby lobby though…. when I have the extra $40, I might just get it.
Isn’t Etsy wonderful?? There are some really great, original things! I was browsing through and decided to share some of the great things I found.
Let’s start with some art!
How about some furniture?? This chair is totally awesome! Love the bench, too!
And I couldn’t leave out this particular piece of luggage… whoever came up with this idea was brilliant. Love, love, love!
Check out this honeycomb clock!
Who loves some pillows?? I DO! Cute pillows can really add so much to a room. There are so many pillows on Etsy that are adorable, that I had to narrow them down before I posted them… maybe one day I’ll do an “all pillow” post… hhmmm… who knows.
And I couldn’t leave out this really cool wall decal! How cool is this? I have a thing for birds… haha!
This wreath is adorable!
Aahhh…. Etsy is wonderful! I love it!
