I've done a little cleanup here on my blog. It was time for a new summery feel to it. I'm thinking I like it, so this is how it will stay for a while. :)
Not a whole lot to report on....mostly it's work, home, cleanup, blog surfing, bed & then the cycle all over again. I've become a tad bit obsessive over blog surfing lately. There are so many gorgeous decorating/home blogs out there & not even enough time to find them all.
There's so many posts on how to revamp old things & make your home gorgeous. In fact, a few of my favorites are listed on the side bar in my blog roll. Joys of Home, Just a Girl, Centasational Girl (you've got to see this post) & Southern Hospitality are just a few amazing sites. Seriously I have spent hours looking over these beautiful blogs/homes (sorry ladies but I love..errr stalk your sites). Now if I could just create a smidge of the look they've got goin' on, I'd be set!
And I know it's not Monday, but I'm super excited to participate in this week's link up party @ Southern Hospitality!
In all my home decor searching, I finally found something I've been wanting to find for a long time - old locker baskets. Today was the city-wide garage sale in several nearby cities (needless to say I didn't get to go to many) but found the 3 locker baskets at a garage sale. $3 each & they were SO rusty. I bargained with the guy & only gave $2 each & brought them home to revamp. Yeah, the rust gave them character but I didn't want all that character flaking off on my other furniture.
Here's the newly painted baskets:
The entertainment center before with the green baskets:
And after with my new locker baskets (please excuse all the messiness - I really need to rearrange):
And here's some other garage sale finds from the last few weeks: Loved this photo thing & the sack of old photos I picked up at a sale. Did you happen to see who was in that one photo? John Wayne - how cool is that?!?!
