Drum Roll, Please

I shared in a previous blog the two chairs
we bought for a song.  With the second chair completely
refinished and reupholstered,
I was determined to find a home for them today
as I cleaned and rearranged the house.
I had it all planned out in my head,
but ya know, plans change. 

Here's the living room before the new chairs.

My windows are clean and bare
awaiting the arrival of new plantation shutters.
I can hardly wait!

This chair has a new home today -
it has moved upstairs to the bedroom.
A comfy, cozy place to sneak away
and read a book in a quiet corner of my room.

This chair moved from this corner to

this corner - to be closer to its mate.

Then the "NEW" chairs came in.

And, for now, I'm happy with them here.

I think the new chairs sitting here
"link" the living room to the
dining room -

I found these birds on canvas at a local shop.

See the crazy indents in the carpet
from where the other chair sat.
I'll get the iron and steam these out.

This is a note card and a frame I had on-hand
so I decided to put the two together.
I'm thinking I like this since I
have this "bird" theme going on (today).

And this little birdie.
I found this feathered-friend
 is a box of "stuff"  treasurers
I bought for $2
from an estate sale. 
It's an oil painting.
And, it's just too cute!!!
The easel was in the box, too.
A great find!

This cardinal figurine was a gift from my
husband many, many Christmases ago.
It's before we had the big chain stores.
I have always cherished these birds.

Thanks for stopping by, blogging friends.

  1. What an absolutely beautiful room! It is so light and bright and welcoming. I love how your new chairs look in there and think they add so much warmth and I agree that they help tie in to your dining room and also with your sofa too. I am so envious that you are getting plantation shutters, they are my all-time favorite window covering, and I can't wait to see them! Thanks so much for linking this up to the Inspiration Friday party this week!
