Entry Way Mini Make-Over

Hey Everyone!! I'm sorry I haven't written in so long. It has been a crazy week!! But I did manage to get in a little junking!! Shocked?? Last Saturday I went to this Mini Design Flea with my friend Allison (she is an amazing photographer!! Check her out at http://www.feather-nest.com/ ). It was sooooo cool!!! It was put on by Linsey at LLH Designs and a couple of other fabulous ladies. Check out Linsey's blog at http://www.llhdesignsblog.com/ to see some pictures. Anyway, I got several VERY cute things and I wanted to show you what I did with a few of them. I bought a wire trash can, an old bottle, a tea towel that has some sort of map on it, a print of a Paris map, and a small gold ornate frame. I used the wire trash can and the old bottle to spruce up my entry way. Here is the before picture...Not terrible, but a little boring. When I saw the wire trash can, I knew I had to have it, but I didn't know what I would use it for. (I LOVE wire baskets! They add great texture to a space!) So I was standing there with my new wire trash can trying to figure out what to do with it. I couldn't think of anything so I set it down on the dresser in our entry way and went to do something else. When I came back to get it, it was perfectly clear!!



Then I remembered an antique frame that I had gotten at the Woodlands Garage Sale. I brought that in and added the old bottle that I got at the Mini Design Flea and a few other things and it just all came together. And now I LOVE my entry way!!

So cute! Gotta love junkin!! I plan to use the tea towel to cover the seat of this chair if I can make it fit. I will post pictures when it is done. It should be really cute!!



I am planning to frame the print of the Paris map, but not sure where to hang it. And the really cute gold ornate frame broke on the way home. Ugh!! Hopefully I can glue it back together. Well, those are my treasures from that junkin trip. But today I went to a junk shop that a friend of mine told me about (THANK YOU, Stephanie!!!). I hate when people use texting slang, but OMG!!!! This place was amazing!! More on that tomorrow, but here is a sneak peak...

More tomorrow!! Have a good night!!

In Him,

Lesley
