After all our furniture arrived, I was excited to finally put up the wall art. Of course this was going to include my DIY abstract painting, but I needed more to balance out the space above the couch. So, I bought two gold frames at Target and added in some pretty Instagram photos of important places to Matt and I. I’m still looking for real art prints on Minted.com and Society6.com , but haven’t found anything I love yet. So, instapics for now! I also found these gold arrows from Target and thought they fit the theme, too. Here’s how it all looked once Matt measured it all out and hung all 5 items: Continue reading “Living Room Wall Art and Hello Snow”
Because our living room has no overhead lighting, and I no way am going to spend $4k to add it, I had to get creative in ways to add light so we can enjoy this room at night and throughout the winter. Continue reading “DIY Lighted Ladder and Other Sources of Illumination”
This is our third Christmas in our house and our first one with a tree! Matt convinced me we needed a real one and so far I am loving it.
I’m keeping this nice and short, but I wanted to jump in and share pictures of our living room chairs that arrived last week. Izzy is already a huge fan of these beauts!
A couple of weeks ago, our new living room couch arrived and it is better than expected. Once we finally unwrapped it from the packaging, Matt and I set it in its new spot and sat back and looked at it. It was not love and first site. I think we both knew we liked it, but we did admit that it just didn’t feel right. It took a solid 5-10min for us to notice that we didnt add on the feet of the couch, which is definitely needed to make it feel finished.
My parents got us a maple tree for both Matt and I’s birthday this year. I’m excited to see it grow old and strong with us in this house! Props to Matt for getting it secured in our front lawn!
I started with this old bullitin board that my mom gave me 5 years ago. I love the frame, but we really don’t have any use or space for a bullitin board. She simply glued and stapled cork board over an old painting. I forgot to take a picture of it with the frame still on, but you get the gist. In any case, I was excited to bring this frame back into my decor without the bullitin portion. Queue DIY painting! Continue reading “DIY Wall Art using leftover wall paint”
