The boys and I and went garage sale-ing this morning and found this beautiful antique chair for our master bedroom. The lady was asking $40, but I got it for $30, which I think was pretty good deal. You can feel that the upholstery is original, though the wood has obviously been refinished.
Today I got a lot of things hung up on the walls, and our bedroom is pretty much finished. for now. ;-)
(I put this pic on twice, and can't figure out how to get it off-ha.)
I got this little curio wall shelf on eBay to replace one that the movers left attached to our wall in Australia. I always need more tea cup display space! :-)
I am starting to decorate our new home, one thing at a time, while still working at unpacking. So, I thought I'd share a few pics of some of the things we've done around the house lately. :-)
We bought a couple of bookshelves at Nebraska Furniture Mart, and the desk is from Craigslist. My first ever experience with Craiglist, by the way. Haha The lovely painting by my sister was a gift.The master bedroom. Our dresser and nightstand came (very) flatpacked from Target, and Ben put them together last night and this morning.
Lamps are 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby. ;-)
This vintage lamp was my Valentine's gift this year.
I just hung my favorite quilt up on the wall today.
Another lamp from Hobby Lobby- I love the detail on the soft pink shade!
The other bookcase is down in the play/family room on our lower level.
The boys love playing down here, and I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time in the lower level this Summer, as it is always cool!
I am definitely not nearly done hanging things up and decorating down here, but it's a start. :-)
My husband Ben, our three little boys and I now make our home in beautiful North Carolina.
Ben is Australian, so we lived in Australia for several years after our marriage, and our first two children were born there.
We love the Lord Jesus Christ, and strive to please him with our lives everyday!
This blog is mostly for sharing my hobby of home decorating, but family posts are frequent, as well. ;-)
