Shopping & Painting

22 Nov

Hope you all had a good weekend!

The Husband and I spent Saturday shopping for our Etsy shop and priming the bookcase, followed by a little babysitting with our cute nieces.

We love shopping for our shop, it’s one of the many reasons we started it. We loved finding treasures and making them available to other peeps.

Unfortunately since our store is online only, we are very limited to the size of the item. So for fun I took pictures of all the big items I wished I could buy.

Loved this blue door, wouldn’t it look lovely leaning in a garden setting.

Amazing X coffee tables!

These red beauties would make perfect bedside tables.

We were so close to buying this table for our backyard…why can’t it be spring already! It was so lovely and rustic but with a beautiful modern design.

And here was my all time favorite! Isn’t this table to die for!

I think it’s time I open up my own store…one day…one day.

Before we went shopping we stopped off at the husbands shop to prime the bookcase I scored off craigslist. Ryan recommended priming it in oil base because it had kind of a funky finish on it. Loving his outfit! haha

With just primer it already looked a whole lot better!

So that’s how our little weekend went.

Did anyone else tackle any home projects this weekend?

I <3 window shopping

30 Sep

TGIF peeps!

I did some Home Goods window shopping last weekend.

How do you like to window shop? Do you always buy at least one item before you leave the store?

Normally I browse around the whole store looking at everything, taking pictures as I go so I don’t forget certain pieces I’m drawn too. Then I do another round, it seems like I always find new things during my second round. Is it like that for you too? It’s like I need a minute to let it all soak in.

My key for window shopping is NEVER grab a cart. I hate carts. I prefer to carry my items, it also gives me time to think about the purchase while I’m lugging it around the store. I think about where I would put it, is it worth the cost, do I have 10 other items similar to it. you know? The crucial things. haha

Here are some goodies I saw, but unfortunately I left empty handed. Sometimes I think it’s better to browse more than you buy, plus it’s nicer on the wallet too.

Have a great weekend!

My rug addiction continues…

1 Jun

I always thought the scale of the Moorish Rug seemed off. It just made the room seem a million times smaller, and since our living room is already small I definitely didn’t want to give the illusion of being even smaller.

You get me, right? So you’d understand if I bought ANOTHER rug, right? Well luckily my husband knows me very well and has become accustomed to my buying and returning shopping habit.

So with his blessing, I purchased this 8 x 10 trellis rug from Overstock. After I measured the room, I really felt like 8 x 10 would be a perfect fit!

I think it makes a huge difference! Wouldn’t you agree?

It’s ridiculously soft and plushy.

Oh and in case you forgot this is what the room used to look like before.
