Remember when I went on a little thrifting adventure,
all in the name of research, of course, for my thrifting tips post?
I almost came home empty handed.
At the last second, I spied a hideous metal shelf in the parking lot.
This hideous metal shelf......
I gave it a good wipe down and then temporarily placed it here....
I knew the scale was off, but I liked how it made the space feel cozy.
I got a little antsy a few weeks ago when it rained for days on end and I fixed this mistake.
First I spray painted the shelves a glossy white.
And then I moved it to the opposite wall.
I added a little plant to the corner.
And dug some art out of the attic to hang over it.
This is my very favorite spot in the house to curl up and relax now
and I love that I can just reach over and grab a book.
This is where the barn door will eventually go. Yep, I'm still dragging my feet on that one.
Ahhh, much better.
I have a love/hate relationship with that love seat.
I love that it is so unbelievably comfortable, but I hate those big awkward arms and those loose pillows.
One of these days, it will mysteriously disappear
(probably when the kids are at school and my husband is out of town).
I know how much they like surprises!
So what kind of decorating mistakes have you fixed lately?
