Quick & Easy Updates

When the New Year hit, I was motivated to get some things done that I had been dragging my feet on for a while.

First up was some sort of window treatments in our Living Room.

For so long, we've had nothing on our windows:

 And it started bothering me. I was originally wanting to hold out for custom window panels.. but I figured bamboo shades would work well in the mean time (and I can keep them up if/when I eventually do get custom drapes).

Good ole Overstock... these are my go-to bamboo shades and I got 4 for $175. They have practically any size you would need!

They make the room feel much more "finished"... which is exactly what I was going for! Cross that off the list.

Next up, I've needed a mirror for our master bedroom for AGES. Finally one morning I was sick of looking at the large blank spot where a mirror should go, and grabbed one from our storage attic.

I actually don't mind it! This is a great case of "good enough" :)

It's leaning, but I secured it to the wall with a hook.

And in case you're curious... the other side of our room:

Done & done!


  1. I would love to know if you painted the dresser in your master...if so, would you mind sharing the color? Thanks!

  2. I think the bamboo shades look great! Also, love your mirror on your entry dresser...have you told your readers about that purchase before? :)

  3. Shades are a nice addition. Love your master - what about painting the mirror gold?

  4. I LOVE that living room that way!! really opens it up and you can see all the pretties!! Nice work :)

    Way to get some stuff done! Sure feels good to knock stuff off the to-do list :)

  6. Making a list and checkin it twice as I type! Lovely rooms you have here.... I love the updates. Amazing how small details makes for a big impact.

  7. Nice work Bryn Dunn. Really awesome furniture and wood work. I would like to buy this beautiful furniture from Online Furniture Store or a Furniture Store to make a good look to my home.

  8. The bamboo shades look great and totally do the trick for that room!

    Bryn- I just HAVE to tell you, this is looking SO good lately. KNow how I know? I was sitting in my home last night pondering pillows for my settee and I instantly thought of how good your sitting room is looking. GREAT job!

  10. I love your Living Room... the art over your sofa, the gold lamp, the black wingback chairs. I know the point was the shades, and those are great, but LOVE all those other things a lot. Gorgeous!

  12. Your living room looks so nice. I love how the faux bois pillows work with the art above the sofa, and the wingback chairs are so handsome. You've done a great job.
