So, this may go down in history as the longest and most stressful redecorating project that I have ever attempted. I wish I knew why. I just could not make up my mind and kept second guessing every decision. There are still a few things to do, but the worst is definitely over. I could not be happier, and I love walking down the stairs in the morning and seeing the wall of nature prints by the artist, Maryjo Koch.
As much as it pained me, I actually cut the pages from three different books by Maryjo Koch in order to achieve a very cohesive, symmetrical display. The leaded glass doors were from my mother's house in Ohio and have been out in the shed begging to come in for some time now.
All of the frames were purchased at Hobby Lobby. The curtains are from Ikea, and this is the fourth go-around with them. You may remember seeing them in the camper. You can read about the fireplace makeover here.
I bought this incredible light fixture at Bliss in Market Square in Knoxville just a few days ago. I usually only get to shop for inspiration there, but this was actually surprisingly affordable!
The crocheted chain pull was also something I brought home from my mother's collection of
junk good stuff. It's just another little "happy" in my kitchen.
The faux brick wall was a fun project that I will write about in detail in my next post. It is hard to see the effect here. It is subtle, but I love the texture it adds to the room.
