Baby Steps with Decorating
Slowly but surely we're decorating around here. We've been so lucky at thrift stores, craigslist, and yard sales at find fun, pretty things. Now it's just putting it all together.
And, keeping it clean. But, we won't talk about that one.
I'm so happy that we finally got some things hung up over the couch. The blank wall was driving me crazy. I originally planned to paint that mirror and put it in Finley's room, but decided instead to keep in in the living room. I'm glad I did. I put arranged the hangings, Eric hung it, and we're both happy with how it turned out.
A print from KeepCalmPosters hung in the dining area. (And a good reminder for me). We still need a clock above that window thing. Butler's window? I think that's what Eric calls it.
I picked out the color for Finley's accent wall and my amazing mother in law painted it. Thanks Ellie! I really love this color. And, isn't the chair neat? My husband (the midcentury lover) got it for her.
I couldn't help doing a photo shoot with my girl while the big boys watched a movie and Silas napped. The color looks way more green than it really is with the photoshop effect. But, the baby is pretty darn cute!
