New Mantle Look

I have really discovered that my decorating style has changed.  I like modern mixed with vintage now.  I used to wait and wait for my Pottery Barn magazine, and now I find I am not digging their stuff at all.  It is so strange.  I have changed things up a lot in my house, and feel like I am finally coming into my own.  This is a picture of my mantel. I got most of the stuff at Homegoods.  Homegoods is my new favorite store.  I like it even more than Goodwill.  The prices are good, and the styles are the latest. 

There are two mirrored boxes, that coincide with the mirrored furniture in the dining room.  Pretty much everything in the living room now is silver, black, and white.  I love the glam aspect.

I got this chair Fo Free at a yard sale.  Hello it is awesome.  I spray painted the legs of it silver, it was a beat up gold before

I got two of these chairs at a yard sale as well.  They were six bucks for both.  They were a pine color and baby blue.  I took them apart and spray painted black and white.  I love them!  They were from Ikea.  I am sorry I have no befores, I just get excited and get to work.
I am still waiting for baby.  I am three days late.

Sneak Peek

I am one day late past my due date.  Ughhh I hate waiting, especially when I am this uncomfortable.  I am going to the doctors today, maybe I will be induced.  I thought I would show you a quick sneak peek at Noah's new big boy room.  It is in the early stages, but still cute.  I made  a side table out of our winter snow tires, that I can change out with the summer ones in the fall.  I used the round circle piece of wood I had from my bird brain idea clock that I had made this past winter.  It is so cute.  The curtains for the window are shower curtains.  I have used shower curtains many a times as curtains, you just need to buy the clips to hang them on a curtain rod.
