Busy With The Move, And A Good Idea

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week.  Getting ready for the big move has got me super busy.  And, with everything packed I have gotten very few projects done at all.  I do, however, have a bunch of ideas going around in my head for things to work on once we get to the new house!  Less than a week! 

When I came accross this poto on Apartment Therapy I thought it was gorgeous.  Upon reading further I discovered that it was also a handy idea.

 

This little shelf is above a door.  And in our little bathroom(s) at the new house, this may be very helpful!  Head over to Home Depot for the tutorial on how to make one.  I know we will be trying it out!

Little Christmas Shelf

For Christmas, my Secret Santa (my sister-in-law-to-be, Jess) got me the cutest little shelf.  We have been debating where to hang it since then!  After we arranged some things the other day, we found the perfect place in the living room.  The colors match perfectly!  She also got me the little diamond studded candle and the LOVE sign that are sitting on the shelf.  It was just so adorable I had to post it.  Take a look!

I know its dark, but this is the shelf hung in the corner of the living room behind the Eames lounger.

Quick Trip To The Antique Store

Last night before the ice storm, we took a quick drive to the antique store the next town over.  I love this store.  All antique stores are fun, but this place is so big that you always see something new.  I did find these two little gems:

A coke box with the cubbies still in.  I have been wanting to hang one of these up for a trinket shelf.

This is a very old cigar box.  I though this would be beautiful to hold little odds and ends.

We decided to put the cigar box in the TV cubbie for now.  The coke box we hung in the living room above the Eames lounge chair.  For now all that we put in it are some antique glass candies.  They are a little lost in there, but I needed a place to put them.  Over time I’m sure we will collect more trinkets to put in there.  I think it looks really cute.  Any other suggestions?

This was the spot we chose for the coke box. Don't mind those awful curtains! 🙂

The back of the box has a bit of a wierd shape, but this is a close up of the little candies if you can make them out.
