Don't you sometimes wish that you had and unlimited budget to redecorate your house? I do! Sadly, for most of us, that is not the case. However, I find that even small changes to my home help make things feel fresh and new. Here are some of the updates I have made lately...
A Little DIY
I love to display fragrances on an attractive vanity. For years I had a mirrored tray that I kept all my perfume bottles on, but lately I have been feeling like that looked dated. I decided that I wanted something different, and a bit more rustic.
So, I ordered an extra large walnut slice off of Amazon.
I coated the slice completely with 4 layers of matte polyurethane, rubbing with steel wool in between each coat. (In a well ventilated area of course!)
Once the last coat had dried fully, I had a cool tray on which to display all my perfumes and delicious creams.
While I was there, I had my eye out for throw pillows for my living room. I found a neutral plaid that I liked, and also couldn't resist the splash of color in the red and yellow floral print.
A Little Green
And in this case, some pink and yellow too. I really love orchids, although I'm not great at keeping them alive. I found this small orchid for my bathroom and I just love the pop of color. It came with a black pot that I was not a huge fan of, but I found a white one that I loved. I purchased all at a local garden shop called Logan's in Raleigh.
A Lovely Gift
I visited my parents over the weekend, and my mom gave me a lovely early birthday present.
This gorgeous wine coaster is by RABLABS, New York. Their products are so special. Definitely check out their website!
