The weather is finally warming up here in Michigan and it’s giving me the itch to spring clean. And by spring clean of course, I mean attempt to dust my bookshelves, but in reality use this as an excuse to rearrange everything. And if I rearrange the bookshelves, I probably need to rearrange whats hanging on the walls, so out came the hammer and nails!
When I was done with my
cleaning rearranging, I looked around and everything seemed pretty and springy, albeit dusty, so I did the only sensible thing and recruited my kids to vacuum and dust with the promise of ice cream. Because I fully believe in bribery when it comes to dusting :)
I thought I would share a few shots of what my house is looking like these days after my rearranging madness. I also tried to include some wider shots so you can get a better feel for the floor plan of our house. I sometimes get questions regarding our layout, which is just really hard to shoot with my limited photography skills. Hopefully this gives you a better idea.
My DIY mirror found it’s way back to the mantel because I got this gorgeous new print from Melissa Lyons. I “met” Melissa on instagram in the best way! Remember this gorgeous pillow I shared from my mom’s house? She bought it at a local home decor shop and I shared it on instagram. Turns out Melissa followed me on Instagram and was so excited to see that her pillow had made it’s way to my mom. Once I checked out her gorgeous feed, I fell in love with the rest of her artwork and knew I needed to have a print for myself.
Isn’t it gorgeous? You can check out the rest of her shop here.
I also hit up HomeGoods in search of a picture frame and couldn’t leave without these striped pillows, because when have I ever been able to leave a striped pillow behind? Add pillow hoarding and dusting avoidance to my growing list of faults that I refuse to apologize for…
Now that I have the new stair runner, I toned down the pillows in my entry way (I pulled these out of my pillow closet, tell me you have a pillow closet?) because there was a lot happening with the bold striping on the stairs.
I think that’s it… or at least, that’s all I got at the moment. I know I have been MIA for the last few weeks, (mainly due to the fact that I’ve been binge watching the Mindy Project and chasing my kids all over the neighborhood), but I’ve also been power shopping with my mom for a super fun out of state project that I can’t wait to share with you all. Be on the lookout next month for some awesome makeovers, if you like before and afters, you are going to love what’s coming up!
