All Moved In...

Well, mostly at least.

Here is my mantle for now. I'm still getting settled in so I'm sure I'll end up changing things. 

For instance, I really want to dry brush a pallet white with a simple wreath on it, similar to this photo below of  Donna's mantle at Funky Junk Interiors.

My little thrift store owls found a new home hanging out with the awesome vintage suitcase and metal basket my mom found for me.

And last but not least, I have already found a new project. There was one wall in the dining room of the apartment that was just so bare and it needed something. Luckily there are 3 or 4 thrift stores near my new job (yay!) so I wasted no time after work to stop in there. I found a sofa table that was just the right size for the space I wanted to fill for just $20.

The top needs a little T.L.C. I think I'm going to paint the table an apple green a little lighter than the color of the suitcase pictured above, with the cane on the bottom and some details on the legs white.

Excited to get started on it, but the paint will have to wait until payday next week =P

In my next post I'll FINALLY share the after pictures for the table I painted a while back. I have more room in this new apartment so I ended up just keeping it. I'm bad about that, but hey I needed a table for the TV in our bedroom now!
