We recently redecorated our family room. Our main purchases were a couch, love seat, and entertainment center from IKEA, and new carpeting. The entertainment center came with fifteen cubbies to decorate....and I was determined to decorate with items I already had. I was mostly successful!!
|Here's a peek at six of the cubbies.|
|These books all belonged to Bill's mother, and the little squirrel is the survivor of a salt & pepper set.|
|The tiny acrylic was purchased from an artist who consigned in the gift shop I co-owned from 1995-2003, the figurine was a gift from Bill, and the bowling pin was purchased from Homegoods for $4.99.|
|More of my mother-in-law's books, a picture and a bird figure purchased years ago, and a bottle I decorated last year.|
|I love these little Lefton angels....this one has been around for several years. I originally found her at a thrift store for $1.21. The Civil War videos are Bill's, and the stack of resin stars are another purchase from my gift shop days.|
|These squirrels, the metronome, and the tiny print were all found tucked away in my craft room. The books are from a yard sale. I like buying old books to decorate with...especially if they're red, blue, green, gold or cream.|
|This owl came from Kohls....it was part of their Christmas line for 2012. I couldn't pass it up, especially since he was on sale AND I had an additional 30% off!|
I'll continue the tour of the cubbies this week. Have a happy Monday!!!
