A crafty few days...

January 27, 2010

I really liked having this framed next to the front door but since it was a wedding gift I didn't get to pick out the colors so it's never been a favorite in my house. I decided to do something about it this weekend.


I covered up the parts I didn't like with scrap book paper...


and put it in a white distressed frame. Price - 0$!

Then I arranged some frames I painted white above the bench. It just needed something bigger but it took me awhile to figure out what.

So, now the entry looks like this! We still need a new light though...
I added some old black shelfs above our big comfy chair and put some white birds on them. I love the white birds!
And, if you remember this post I had a picture of some brass candle holders...well, I painted them black and put them in the entry way.

Here is how Jonathan and I's day started out...we saw furniture at a garage sale we happened to drive by. We got both pieces for 40$ so we couldn't pass them up. Jonathan and I both have a thing for mid century modern furniture and Jonathan has a thing for record players so I couldn't say no! We have big plans for both! I'll keep you posted!
