I took advantage of some great afternoon light and took some pictures of some of our spaces.
I realized lately that I don't share as much of the "work" I do in our home as I should. One of my goals is to start sharing more details... starting now!
My art wall in the upstairs landing. The dancer is a painting that was done by my great grandmother - I've admired it ever since I was a little girl and my parents gave it to me on my wedding day. I cherish it so! The red vase painting was done by my grandmother. I like to paint as well, and I hope to do it regularly someday to pass on the family "tradition".
Last week I got on a decorating kick and changed up the entire guest room. It used to look like this. Remember the prints? I decided I want to make it more "hotel like" and simplified the room. I re-did the room on a $0 budget; re-using things I already had laying around.
Mom and Dad - it's all ready for you!!!
edit: court commented and asked "I LOVE your bedside table in your guest bedroom!!! I have been looking for something similar that has clean lines but looks a little antique-like (has some character). Where did you get it?!"
The bedside table is actually a........ file cabinet! I found it at Target a while back on clearance. I took the file cabinet hook things out of it and now use it for a nightstand. It's made out of wood and leather and I love the masculine feel it gives.
side note: Some of you have written comments asking me about my camera. It's not actually my camera. My mother-in-law has generously let me borrow it for... well to be honest it's been over a year. She's so generous and kind :) I hope to get my own someday so I can give her her camera back! It's a Pentax istD L Digital SLR.
