So, I haven't posted as much as I would like to about my house because we have been in updating mode over the end of July and the whole month of August. We've done some major cleaning, decluttering, and a few basic hardware refreshes like the before and afters below.
Our 15-year-old, broken porch light was beggin' for replacement!
So much better!
The ugly, antiquey (in the bad way), brass lamp by door showed signs of its age also, so...
...we easily replaced it!
Before and after of our guest bathroom sink. (The before's handles are discolored and missing a piece.) The shiny, new one with an arch is so much better.
Haven't bought this glamorous light for my room yet, but I love the thought of it more every day! It's $79.97 at the Home Depot.
Inspired by the gold antlers in the above picture...
...and the gold scissors in this picture...
...and this quote, I spray-painted about ten things gold. The best of which follow:
An apple juice jar! (Who knew, right? It turned out well, but it smells more like spray paint than apple now.)
And the antler and clothes pins in the study!
So...anywho...that's what I've been up to for the most part.
Did you notice anything different about my desk shot?
I bought this lovely little lady on Joss & Main. She just arrived in the mail today! I am so excited! Any name suggestions for her? I was thinking something along the lines of Juliet, Aurora, Esther, or Cleopatra, but my brother isn't crazy about those. Your thoughts?
And please don't say Mary or Elizabeth or Chloe or Abby or Madison or anything too standard right now... It's not that I don't like those names, but I want something super special! ;)
