Correcting the Design

1.30.2012

I made some changes to the sun room since I first showed you the reveal of the new wall color. When I put the room back together it came out with a bird theme and that was not at all what I wanted. I want this room to have more of a laid back French country rustic and collected over time look. Did you get all that?

 Here are some shots of one of the tables with its new look using everything I already had. The only thing new is the lamp.












I decided to cover the table with a drop cloth that was used as a drapery panel before.

I am loving the new look and there are more changes in this room coming up.

Today is my blog's two year blogiversary! I will never forget being so nervous to push that publish button the first time. I had actually tried many times for more than a week and always backed out. I am so glad I finally did. The friendships are way more than I could have ever expected. I am always blown away by y'all taking time to stop by here and leaving the sweetest comments. You always brighten my day. I have been lucky enough to meet several bloggers in person this past year and hope to meet more this year.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
