~Bathroom Mirror Swap~

This wicker framed mirror was in one of our guest bathrooms when we bought the house. I've never really liked it, but since it wasn't hideous, it stayed in place for two years.
 Finally I got around to looking for a prettier mirror for this bathroom, that I think better compliments the beautiful style of the vanity.
 I found this oval, silvery framed mirror at Homegoods. One of my favorite stores. ;-)
           Ahhh, much better, don't you think? :-)

Chair happy :-)

My last post was about our new chair slipcover, and this one is about a cute and comfy chair I found on Craigslist last week. So, I guess I'm a little chair happy of late. ha Every time I walk past our living room and see this adorable chair, I do feel happy. ;-)
 I've been looking for a pretty armchair to go in this spot for over a year now. The chair I had here before actually belongs in my study/ library room and since it doesn't have arms wasn't really comfortable to use often.
The chair had been reupholstered by the previous owner in a pink toile and green gingham. Very cottagey/romantic. :-) And perfect for curling up with a good book. Which I have done several times now....

Chair Slipcover!

The chair slipcover I ordered several months ago from an Etsy shop finally arrived a couple weeks ago. I am so excited about how perfectly it fits and finishes off the family room! :-) The seamstress did a great job, so it was worth the wait.
 So far I have not had to wash it. And it gets used all the time by our 3 little boys. However, the ottoman slipcover that I made gets dirty more so it has been washed several times. ha
