We haven't done a lot of big stuff with the house, given the holidays and the fact that the hubs caught not one but two colds starting January 1st. If the tax refund gods love us any, the next thing will be replacing the awful living room carpet. Since the wood paneling makes everything so dark, we are opting for a light gray carpet.
But for the fun part. Pictures!
-Lamp was dirt cheap at Home Goods
-Green vase-birthday present from my mom since my orange one was broken in college.
-My mom also gave me the green and gold cup next to the candles, which is filled with potpourri.
-The clock was actually an anniversary present from the hubs.
-The shelf was a childhood item.
-The little cups on the shelf are from thrift stores.
-The nightstand itself is a pair with the hubs and he had them growing up. We actually have the nightstands, dresser and the hutch in our dining room from his childhood.
Stepping down off my soapbox, it was around the corner and until we redo the front of the kitchen bar, I wanted something to spruce it up. The pictures are family/friends. The plant is a fern I'm trying desperately to keep alive, despite my very black thumb. I try. I really do, to love plants. It just doesn't work out half the time.
