Book Page Wreath and Mini Makeover


A little while back I wrote about how I was over my living room. Basically just sick of the set up and the colors. I needed less clutter and more calm. I wanted a more neutral palate. So after a few minor changes I think I am a little closer to my goal.



I started by taking everything off the walls and starting fresh. I made this darling book paper wreath from the tutorial over at Jones Design Company and I love how it turned out! I think I am going to make a smaller one soon that I can change the ribbon on depending on the season, holiday. 

I just shopped my house and found all this other stuff.

I found the silhouettes in a box in the garage
{ I bought them years ago and wasn't ever sure what to do with them}  

The round mirror I stole from a bathroom 
{I love it and didn't feel it was getting the attention it deserved in there} 

That is just a piece of cardstock in that frame, I needed a little color and for now, it works for me. 

The Z is black paint stamped on to a piece of recycled brown cardstock.

I recovered the pillows with white linen and pinned some flowers I made on to them. Nice quick fix.




I have had this stand since I was a kid. 
I think it has been about 5 different colors.
It was an army green so I spray painted it milk white and added the over sized glass knobs 
{Hobby Lobby}  and I love the way it turned out!  

The large picture is a print I got a million years ago when I worked at Banana Republic. They were throwing it away and I saved it. So glad I did.  

This silhouette is Avery bug and every time I look at it, it makes me feel guilty I still haven't had one of Emma bug done yet. Poor second kid! I am the second kid so you think I would be better about stuff like this! 
That is Emma is the picture frame below. 

My $7 lamp from Lowes

Coral, a gift from my mother in law 

and one of my little cast iron dogs 
{ I love these and they are so hard to find}




 

The new pillow covers:

IKEA $7each

LOVE THEM!



I have wanted a sunburst mirror for sometime but died every time I saw the price tag! I finally found this one at Micheal's. Although when I got it home I wasn't sure where to put it? I think it may have finally found a home.  

The prints are Crate and Barrel. I actually have six of them but I finally had the courage to break up the set and just use two for now. 

Mirror jewelry box is a Target clearance find
{it feels a void for the night stand I would love to own some day}

Black vase is from Vietnam, something my dad brought back with him from his time in the Air Force.
I have two and I'm glad I was able to find a special place to show them off. 

Glass vases are just some from my enormous collection that I own. 
I already owned a ton and then my sister had her wedding at our home last year and well now I have....enough for a wedding!!



This chair is a makeover waiting to happen!

It is a hand me down from my friend Emily and for now has some IKEA fabric draped over it.

I know it's going to be fabulous once it's done!!
