Hope you all had a great weekend! Besides being Father's Day, yesterday was also my dad's birthday, so we took him out and had a nice day.
I haven't showed you my living room in awhile, so I thought I'd share a few pictures of it to refresh your memory.
I got this old drawer unit at a garage sale many years ago. It was buried in my basement and I had forgotten about it. When I was trying to think of something functional to put beside the couch, I suddenly remembered it! It's perfect to hold our remotes, coasters, etc. I love the quirkiness of the one drawer that's been stripped!
My hubby stenciled this factory cart with my favorite number 3 and our birth year on top when I was out of town a couple years ago, as a surprise for me. So sweet!
He also surprised me another time with this bottle carrier. I'm thrilled that my seltzer bottle collection fits in it perfectly!
Actually, now that I think about it, he grabbed up this street sign (over the patio doors) at the Randolph flea market in Chicago last year when we had gone separate ways for a bit. Does he know how to find 'good junk' or what? :)
My mom found this old barnwood shelving unit for me when I was searching for something to put on this wall. I love its simple, rustic charm. I've changed it around quite a few times, but this is what it currently looks like.
I gathered up some of my favorite things to display on these shelves.
My friend Carol stenciled this basket-love it!
So there you have it-one side of my living room, at least. The mantel is on the opposite wall and I've changed it up again (big surprise!) so I'll be sharing that soon. Have a fantastic day!
