(I've almost forgotten how to write a post, it's been so long-ha!)
Happy Spring! I hope you're all doing great! :)
I've been good...just busy reopening our shop Home Sweet Home after our 2 month 'winter break.'
Of course I've been tweaking some things around my home, and thought now would be a good time to show you.
Do you remember the elephant in my living room (aka our tv armoire?)
I posted about it awhile ago here.
This is what it looked like before. It was my style when we got it several years ago, but not so much anymore.
I had covered the doors with torn pages of old sheet music as a temporary fix; it held me for awhile but just wasn't 'getting it' anymore!
I've shared with you before that I don't paint, so a few weeks ago my sweet hubby took it upon himself to paint it for me (could it be that he got tired of hearing me complain about it? ;)
What a difference!!
I'm so happy with how it turned out! Now it actually blends with the rest of the living room decor, instead of being an eyesore.
In the small space between the armoire and the fireplace, I wanted to keep things simple. I got this chalkoard in a heavy old frame a couple of months ago, and it fit the space perfectly.
I wrote one of my favorite sayings on it: 'Courage is fear that has said its prayers!'
Underneath the frame I placed a white wicker chair and added some handmade pillows.
I've had this old, unique cardboard box that has 'groce cure hams and bacon' printed on it, and thought it would be fun on top of the armoire.
This is a corner of the living room that I've rarely ever shown (those are the French doors to the patio on the other side of the armoire) but now I love it and feel like my living room is finally complete!
I'll be back soon to show you some more changes that I've made in this room.
And just as an update, my mom recently had her 6 month colonoscopy following her surgery for colon cancer. Her report came back great, and we are so thankful!
We'll forever be grateful for all of your prayers!
Have a wonderful day, and God bless you until next time! :)
