Today I decided to go shopping! I am slowly planning for my decorating. I am down to 2 colors of samples painted on my wall for the dining room, kitchen, entry hallway and, most likely, the living room. One is a green turquoise color while the other is a blue green turquoise color. I am leaning to the blue green one. The dining room will have white wainscoting. I am so excited!
Here are my "picks" for decorating!
In one corner area by a window I have placed 2 chairs and needed a table between them that is not too big. This oak table that needs a bit of refinishing was a perfect fit. Most table like this that I find are &80 and up and usually rather rickety. I was not sure I could fix a rickety one. Then I saw this at my favorite antique store in Aurora and it was $50.
I think it looks nice with the chairs!
Then I found this antiqued shelf made from shutters for $15. I love the "recycle, refurbish" idea!
I found another shelf with knobs for hanging things that is distressed. I am considering chalk painting and adding s slight stain to antique it like the other shelf.
I saw this watercolor (colors are brighter than in photo) and fell in love with it for $12.It is 16x20.
I am thinking of painting the frame a turquoise color. Or maybe paint it white.
It is black and seems odd.
Two pieces to go onto shelves. The birdhouse may get repainted. Pondering that. Each was $5
These 2 small bottles were a bargain at $2 each and will fit in one of my lighted display cabinets.
Can always add another angel to the decor! The cross says Nature, look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better. Albert Einstein
It spoke to me.
They were $4 each!
For $10 I got 12 rose embellished ornament for next years tree!
This flag made of wood will go at my front door! For $6 it was purrfect for me!!!
All my friends would agree!
I could not seem to get a great photo of this shelf. It is going to hang up in the corner behind my little fireplace. It is about 3 ft tall and is gray with black floral designs on the 2 shelves. I am going to live with it before considering painting it. It does look much better than photo. I got it for $25. It is chalk painted with Annie Sloan paint.
Then I got a few odds and ends. The black metal cat hook will be near the front door and debating whether to paint or leave as is. Ideas?
I got it for $3 and the sign for $5 because of a little nick on lower corner which I can re-paint!
I love having signs to make people smile!
These 3 signs will fit in nicely!
These 3 little signs were only $1 each and will inspire me.
I am happy with my choices, even though some may go through a transformation.
That is part of making it speak "me."
I love hearing suggestions!
