Doing the furniture shuffle

 Hi there friends...
I've been doing the furniture shuffle in our master bedroom and after seeing the new arrangement I don't know why I didn't think to do it sooner... 
(insert hubby rolling eyes)! Oh ye of little faith...he loves the new arrangement too!
Ignore the empty space above the chair...on the hunt for new artwork.
 I moved the hubbies highboy to the wall that had my dresser on it and moved my dresser to the wall that had the highboy...am I confusing you yet?!?
We like having a TV in our room...I actually like to go to sleep with it on I just set the timer.
It used to be on a stool next to the highboy...now with it on the dresser it makes for better viewing.
 I took the three ironstone plates that were over my bed and hung them over the TV...can you tell the domino effect is happening here lol!

Here's a photo of the old arrangement you can even see the highboy in the mirror. Oh yes and I have plans to reuse the mirror somewhere else;-)
 Now it looks like this...
 I LOVE the new arrangement! 
More changes going on in here and it involves paint...so stay tuned!

Chest makeover in Antibes Green

Hi there friends...
This past weekend I worked on a piece for Victoria's room.
~~~
Do you recongize it?

Here's the before...
I almost forgot to take a picture... as you can see the pulls are already off  I couldn't wait to get started!!
These were the matching nightstands to our Thomasville bedroom set...I was going to sell them on CL. 
My cousin came over for a visit and told me how she just redid her girls room and the only thing she needed was a nightstand so I offered her one of these and redid it in pure white for her to go with their new beds.
 I wasn't going to sell just one so I redid this one for Victoria's room...it was the perfect piece to put her TV on.
My go to place for knobs is Hobby Lobby but these drawes are thick and their knobs wouldn't work...the screws weren't long enough. 
I lucked out and found these crystal knobs in Home Depot and they came with long enough screws to go through the holes YAY!!
I love the way they look!
I didn't want this piece heavly distressed so I just sanded around the edges.
 I love the pop of color it added in here.


One more before and after...
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a super week!

~Updated Lighting~

 Hi there friends...
Since the renovations on the first floor have been finished and everything was put back together the one thing that kept bugging me was the lighting over the table in our breakfast area.
~~~
When I got the new Ballard catalog and saw all the lighting was 15% off I bit the bullet and ordered this lantern I had my eye on!
 Before...
Love the After!
It comes in three different colors...I choose the brick red.

 It seems every time we make an update in this house it's never a quick fix!! 
 The new lantern is quite heavy so we had to replace the original plastic electrical box with this metal one.
Soooooooo...
while we were at it I was finally able to get the light centered over the table. 
Not having it centered before drove me nuts!!
Instead of patching up the hole and having to repaint the entire ceiling I chose to use a ceiling medallion...which of course got a paint treatment of it's own!
 I love the way the medallion turned out. 
I used AS Versailles and Chateau Grey along with both clear and dark wax to give it an old layered look.




Now I have something else in mind for the the kitchen...the wheels are always spinning lol!!
Have a super week!
