Better Homes and Gardens has a function on their website, where you can virtually arrange a room. This is how I'd like for our oddly shaped living room to look eventually. What do y'all think? Does it work, visually?
I just hate bare walls, and Keith is someone who doesn't need a lot of things on the walls. Anyway, needless to say, for the past 10 years, our walls have been pretty bare and it's always bugged me. Recently, this has been changing, thankfully.
Here are a few new additions:
I collect old postcards and I just love the way they look framed. I have some New Year's postcards that I framed and hang during the holiday season. I've also got another frame ready to put some of the postcards in to hang in the living room. In our downstairs bathroom, we have a single postcard framed, of a place here in Oklahoma called Turner Falls. Well, to go along with that little water theme, I framed these three last night and hung in a big bare spot you can see when the bathroom door is open. I thought they turned out nicely. It was hard to photograph, so please excuse the flash.
And these were a gift from my parents, for Christmas. I just love the colors!
We hung these at the base of our stairwell in the living room.
This little postcard is a print by Jack Wells. He's a local artist and I just think his stuff is great. We've had this one hung for about a year, but it had to be moved to another wall, to make room for the china cabinet (if it ever gets done!) so I thought to take a photo after I moved it. Sorry it's kinda big, but I wanted you to be able to see the print.
This is the larger print we have by Jack Wells, of the same cook. This whole setup is going to have to be moved, because that's the only wall the china cabinet will fit in (seirously... this china cabinet has taken over our lives!)
Again, sorry the photo is so big.
And finally, the progress on the china cabinet. It's getting there. Slowly.
Thanks for looking!
