Still tweaking and re-arranging

I sold a couple of things here in the living room and brought over hubby's grandmother's old wicker. I had to recover all of the cushions. I used painter's drop cloth. I made the pillows too. The print fabric came from Hobby Lobby. Yes, we have a Hobby Lobby now!

The shutters were found on the side of the road as was the round frame.

I love the old ironstone, chips, crazing and all.

The other shutter I used here behind the entry table. I repainted the old lamp.

Old cabinet painted blue inside. Nice contrast. I keep my vintage dog figurines here as well as old blue willow, books, etc, and attic treasures.

The print above the table was from hub's grandmother too.

Vintage prints from Knick of Time Interiors (blog). She has lots of lovely downloads.

A little low/no cost decorating goes a long way. The sell of the cabinet and bench purchased the rug set and the painters drop cloth. Everything else was found or I already had.

My next project to accomplish is some of those topiaries using a tutorial I found on Dee Duncan's blog Vintage Country Style blog . I will post pics later!

  1. Evening, great decorating, love the trencher with the nest, looks wonderful, Francine.

  2. It all looks wonderful! Warm Blessings!~Amy

  3. Looks wonderful Becki! Don't you just love Hobby Lobby, hehe? I worked there for almost 20 years. It was hard to quit because we could use our discount on sale and clearance items too. Boy, did I ever spend lots of $$ there. =]

    I love chips and especially crazing in ironstone too. It cracks me up because there is an antique mall around here that always sells the bowls cheap because of cracks. Heck yeah, I'll take it!! Love your road side find of the shutters, very neat!

    It really looks good! I would definitely be spending lots of time in that room if it was in my home. =]

    Have a great week ahead~

    1. Thanks for your sweet comments Angie, Amy @ BumbleBee Lane and Primitive Stars. Yes Hobby Lobby has becomea fav place to shop, and the road side too :) The cats enjoy this room very much, away from the dogs.

      Have a great week and Happy Spring!

      Blessings ` Becki
