How was your weekend? Mine went by too fast!
Friday night we lost power for an hour and a half due to some rodent damage at a substation. It was nothing compared to what the victims of Sandy have been going through but it still wasn't fun. We did get to catch up with our neighbors though so that was nice! Silver lining :)
On Saturday, I found a home for the two Nate Berkus items I got from his Target collection. I placed my rams head on our kitchen counter:
I like it for now but I'm sure it'll get moved eventually haha
I also hung my turtle shell on a wall in our stairway:
It's hard to get a wide shot of the space because the staircase wall blocks most of it but here's what the shell looks like when you're looking down onto our foyer from our loft:
Our foyer (like most of our house) has me stumped. I honestly have no idea what to do with it. It's two stories tall and it's kind of skinny.
I'd like to add a gallery wall on the walls to the right of the shell (the ones that lead up the stairs) so I was thinking that maybe a large mirror + a skinny console table would work in the foyer? That's the plan for now but it'll probably change tomorrow haha
On Sunday, I replaced the old frame I had around my cardboard deer head:
With the thrifted gold frame I got from Saver's:
And I kind of hate it :(
I liked it at first but now I'm not so sure, especially after looking at the "before" picture. I don't know if it's the color of the cardboard deer paired with the gold that I don't like or what but something seems off to me. I'm going to live with it a little longer to make sure I'm not just reacting badly to the change so we'll see!
What'd you get done over the weekend? Any small changes?
