I moved back to Waco about a month ago and since then I have been living in a vacant, very un-homey apartment. I just did not have the time or the push to decorate it. Until NOW! Everyone SHOULD know that Miss America is on Saturday night on ABC and so I decided to have some friends over to watch it :) Well I can't have them over to a vacant un-homey apartment! So I had to decorate fast. Last week I foraged all social media sites and finally found a cute little store called Junque in the Trunk. The lady that owns the place, Kelly, is so great! I can't wait to have friends and family visit and take them to see this adorable shop. She spends all week finding and fixing up antiques and then brings in all new furniture Fri-Sun! It's so cool!
Anyways - I found a table and chairs, coffee table, and an entertainment set (which is actually a buffet I think). I wanted to spend about $300 and ended up coming in $100 over budget, but she threw in a cute wicker basket, which would have cost me $50 at Target.
I ordered fabric on Fabric.com and it should arrive in the next couple of weeks. My colors are Red, Yellow, Turqoise, and Grey!
Okay - so here it is as of now.
This is the picture... on the wall. $40 16x20 canvas print from Walgreens! I used PicMonkey.com to add the 'overlay' words in different free fonts. Words such as joy, sisters, family, sweet, love, friends, loyal, forever, funny turner girls, etc... I lover his picture of us too!! So great!
This is my table! Which I am pumped about. It is a leaf table and I actually keep the leafs up at my house. It is a gray chalk paint top with white legs and the 60's style chairs have a brown and peacock print on them.. I am falling in love with Peacocks!!! Don't be surprised if everything I have very SOON is peacock!!! haha
I am hoping to put this in my entryway. There is an incredible bird print at Pier One that I am waiting to get - I think it's $50. Anways it would look great above the shelf thing I got off of Etsy. And I have several other frames I have collected to put on the shelf with it.My next project for my house (I want to put next to my TV - I want to make this home sign! I think it will look great in my house! I am thinking of getting an old ceiling tin I found at the antique store $18 and painting this on it? What do you think? I think it would look really cute - and they might have 2 more that I could get and make a set out of it... WHO KNOWS!! I love Etsy and Pinterest - because I am crafty and mimicking - anyone else feel me?
And this next one I want to put on some barn wood I salvaged. Getting the paint either tomorrow or Wednesday for this quote! My mom always sang this to me as a little girl!! I love lullabies - it is one of the many things I am looking forward to when I have children.
Well That is my house and that is all the pictures I have for now! I will upload more as a I decorate and "CLEAN" haha
I am kind of proud of myself for being so domesticated! DVR is coming tomorrow! Thank goodness... Just in time for all of my TV Shows! Hopefully my curtains and more pillows will come in SOON!! Until then.. Happy First week of January!
