Work with what ya got

I wanted to share some decorating I've been doing the past few days. This is by no means a final product ... I think each time I walk past I move something or put it on another table. But, that's all part of the fun! I didn't even buy anything new - just went shopping in my own basement.

Here's a little peak of what I've been up to!

This is part of a computer desk that was in the basement when we moved in. I used it as an extension of my tv stand. And yes, I am missing a candle in my candlestick. I'm still debating whether I want to even put candles in them ... they are kind of neat without them, I think.

This is a bookcase in front of my main window in the living room. These windows happen to be my kitties favorite spot to scope out birds and squirrels, so I'm usually picking at least one thing up from off the floor and putting it back in its place.

I decided to use my doilies as part of my decor. I like this table a lot more now that I did! Tonight I'm going to cut some wildflowers to put in the green vase - can't wait!

I decided to change my table setting since I have all these matching pieces.

More doilies! I had 3 of the same size and style, so I thought they'd look cute on the saucer.

And the tea set. I really like it on my table - the green is so summery to me.
Come see me tomorrow ... I've got a furniture revamp reveal! It was super simple and I wasn't expecting the outcome I got so I think you'll like it!


  1. I love these kinds of posts! They've been floating around blogland frequently lately, and they're so inspirational to see your own things in a new way.

  2. The doilies on the saucer idea is cute.


thanks for stopping by chester and donkey. I love your comments ... they kind of make me squeal with delight when I see one.
