bookshelf in my bedroom that i painted over the weekend, which i just accessorized. probably won't stay like this, but this is it for now.

full disclosure - kind of over my striped seat cushions right now, but whatever. i want white ones or something plain, but they're impossible to find in a seat cushion. i guess i could just get regular pillows.

in my bedroom... i painted the top half of this lamp gray this weekend. it used to be orange, and i'm liking the neutrality.

that's all for now! have a nice day!


  1. If you hate the cushions -- dye them if possible! I'd love to see how they would turn out. Love what you've done with the place!

    1. i think it's just for now that i'm not loving them... i just always need my options! haha. :)

  2. I love that lamp in gray. It changes it completely.

    1. thanks! I know, i do too... i kept it orange for about 3 years, but i'm digging the change up, too.

  3. I covet that rug every time you show a picture of it!

    1. i still feel like there are 10000000 things to do, so thank you for saying that! :)

  5. I am surprised you haven't painted any walls!.. Alison

    1. haha... i was able to pick out all my paint colors before we moved in, so no need :) i am considering wallpaper for our guest bathroom, but i definitely have way more fish to fry before dealing with that! plus, wallpaper might be a little permanent for me...

    2. You have gone very light and neutral with this house. I didn't know you picked the paint colors. You used to use so much color...Alison

  6. I painted my chair cushions with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I was hesitant, but had read about other's success, so I gave it a try..I am more than pleased, actually, I'm thrilled with the result. Leslie
    P.S. I love your blog

  7. Kristen: You are a delight! I just love that you are so in love with and are having so much fun with and in your new house. Loving and enjoying your living space is what makes a house a home... Destiny

  10. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)

    Si vous vous assurez que les sacs à main bon marché que vous achetez sont fabriqués par un fabricant réputé, à partir de matériaux de la meilleure qualité, vous pouvez être certain qu’ils dureront longtemps.
