Happy Wednesday! I am guest posting over at Glitter, Glue and Paint again today, sharing the kitchen updates. Go check it out, and say hello to Denyse!
I also wanted to share with you some small-ish changes in the house that have actually made a huge difference to us.
1.) Bedroom Throw Pillows
When we gave our bedroom a makeover last August, I couldn't find the right pillows for the bed, so the room sat like this for the longest time.
Then, one day I was dusting the guest room when I glanced over at the window seat, and it hit me!
Those pillows that have been sitting in this room for almost a year are perfect for our bedroom. So I scooped them up and moved them on over. It looks perfect now, and I love walking into the room with a completely made bed now.
I bought these pillows from Ikea a few years ago for the living room of our apartment in Austin, and now they work perfectly in here. I love "shopping" in my own house for decor!
2.) Living Room Lamp
I guess I could have titled this post "things I stole from the guest room", because this lamp used to be in the guest room and then I moved it to the living room because we needed more light.
I got this lamp at the Restore for $2 and didn't mind the orange color, but it just wasn't quite right for the space. I picked up a can of Rustoleum Spray Paint in "Aubergine" from Home Depot.
A couple quick coats later, and we've got a neat new, purple lamp. Much better.I probably need a crisp, white shade, though..
3.) Bannister, Railing, and Step
Just like most of our house, these were all oak when we moved in. I used gel stain, and followed the same steps to do this as I did on the bathroom vanity, the kitchen cabinets, and the open shelving in the kitchen. Check out these before and afters:
So there you have it, three somewhat small changes in our house that have really changed how the spaces feel everyday!
