Here is a before, a way before:
And, the after (sort of):
It was a completely free re-design. I grabbed a side table from one of the guest rooms, a bowl from the kitchen, a couple vases that were lying around and two white frames that were left over from the office art project.
It's not complete, though. I would love to find a side table/trunk/console (Craigslist, Salvation Army) that has a little more character. Also, the frames still have the Aaron Brother's fillers in them. I'm in search of some great art prints, preferably inexpensive. Does anyone have any favorites? Etsy?
Speaking of art, I have been meaning to share with you my art wall in the office - I'll get to that in the very near future :) Believe it or not, only 3 out of the 11 pieces hanging in my office are actually purchased art - the rest was found art from many random (and free) places.
