Hi everyone! I hope your summer has been keeping you busy with some relaxation thrown in. Mine sure has! I’ve managed to add a few new touches around the house mainly to try and brighten things up and just give things a fresh look. My dining room is one of the darker rooms in my house so I thought some lighter chairs to replace the dark green ones I’ve had for years might brighten it up. I found these on overstock at a good price and I think they help a little in the brightening department. Here’s a before pic:
With the after pic above. I guess slightly, lol, but I love the change either way.. I also wanted an architectural piece on a big wall in my kitchen and found these old shutters at an antique mall in town.
I’m loving the old vs. new look in here. We have since squeezed them together so there’s no space between them and it looks that much better. What do you think? After working on the downstairs I looked around my grandsons room and decided to hang a pennant that I had made, inspired by one of our neighbors, with both of their names on it. I haven’t found the perfect spot yet but it’s here for now. I love working on their room.
That’s pretty much all I’ve had time for this summer in the house. We did have an amazing experience watching baby birds hatch and eventually leave the nest. They had built a nest behind the wreath on our front door. Right next to the window so we had a “ bird’s eye view” lol.
I can’t believe that summer is coming to an end!
