Changing & Rearranging

On Saturday, I got the urge change the bedding in the bedroom.  A local department store I visited had very little to choose from and the price of the ONE that I liked was $335.00!!!   NOT. GONNA. HAPPEN!!  Yikes!  So.....what to do??? Shop the house!  So I did!

I was tired of the quilt we were using as a coverlet, and wanted to get rid of the blue I had in the room.

I took down the curtains I recently made (here), and brought out the comforter I used a year or two ago. I replaced the curtains with the dark brown ones I already had, and used a blanket to cover the blue chair, and a quilt to cover the blue cushions in the antique rocker. Nothing new except the animal print throw I found at Wal Mart for < $15.00.


I even changed out the art!



I placed both chairs on the same side of the room, and reworked the vignette on the armoire.  The chairs flank the dresser.

 


The chalk painted bookcase took the place of the chair I moved. (below)

View from the opposite side of the room.
This makes a nice reading nook.

While moving things around, I replaced the blinds in the master bath, and hung a valance in there.  I also rearranged the bookcases in the family room, as well changing the items on the hall tree.


I only kept my collection of Readers Digest Condensed books here, and put all the others back in the cabinet in my office/library.


I brought out one of my angels, and a cross for the hall tree, and kept the vintage lamp. 

That's the latest 'changes' here.  Does the new year make you want to get organized and change things?

Updating Old Tables & Lamps

I've been busy for a couple of days making some changes to some of my small tables and lamps.  Both are easy DIY projects that don't...
