I am so glad spring is close! This week has been a trade off, one nice day, one cold day, one nice day,.....well, you get it! So, every other day I'm outside doing projects :) And I do have an endless supply of projects, just ask Mr. TSL! One of the projects I plan to undertake is my entertainment center makeover. My dad made my entertainment center for me when I graduated from high school....which was like (cough, cough) 11 years ago. It is very sturdy and I go through waves of, I love it and waves of it's too freakin' big. Right now, I am back on the love it side. I have never really liked the color. It's too orangy, because the stain. It also doesn't feel as dramatic in the height, because it's so wide. I am also having a hard time with the vignette on the top. I have a lot of things I like on top, but it feels too crowded. I have seen some pics of this being pulled off beautifully, but I don't think I'm kicking that look.
Right now it looks like this:
The Lettered Cottage
Did not succeed! I think my ceilings are too low in the living room to pull off a vignette like that one. I also like this:
I am planning on building a shelf with more cubbies along the top like the one above and adding it to the existing entertainment center. I could also just add a piece with crown moulding to make it look like this one:
Now on to something a little more beachy and polished looking. Like I mentioned in a previous post I love the beach! So, I made a little centerpiece inspired by spring and the beach. It's on a mirror that I took off the bathroom door for the girls bathroom. I like it because it's sparkly and reflects light from the chandelier!
