Phase One of Lightening Up the Family Room
Turned out a little more summerish than springish, but I like it. It feels light and fresh just how I wanted.
The gravy boat was my Great Grandmothers given to me by my Grandmother on my wedding day 17 years ago. Until today I have never displayed it. Sadly my Grandmother is in the last few weeks of her life and I am so happy to be able to look at this piece of her everyday.
The bird cage I bought last week. It fit perfectly on the shelf just like I was hoping it would. I used some old books for color and the shells for texture. I most likely will be moving things around a bit more as I walk by it. I can't leave stuff alone to save my life. The curtains are next on the list. Hopefully I can get a good start on them tonight.
As for the red trunk, it is a work in progress. I need to do some collecting of accessories for it. I need a short, chubby, ratty lamp and maybe another trunk to set on top. I'm also considering putting some legs on it to raise it up a bit.
Hope everyone is having a fab Friday!
