Little Change Around

While I was having my creative weekend, I also moved and changed some things around…again!
You may remember this wall having…..
my $5 sideboard on it. I have been changing the vignettes on here over and over for the last year and was getting really bored with it, so I moved it to….

…behind the $5 bargain chairs I recently re covered. This big piece makes the space more definite now and also stops the chairs sliding back when the boys throw themselves on them!
So you can see the little unit where the sideboard used to be.
You can also see that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse was on and Declan eating what was left of the yoghurt. On a good note, you can see my Ginger jar collection on the TV unit…love those jars!!!

This little cupboard I bought with some other cupboards and a bed for about $35! So the cupboard worked out to be about $5. I seem to do well with things that cost 5 bucks!!
The little blue china knobs were spares I had to tie in with my blue and white china collection.
My Mum, the bargain specialist, picked up the standard lamp for me while she was here on holidays (Mum and Dad left yesterday…I had a cry while they drove off=0( and I added a shade I already had – $10.00 this came to. With a new change around came a little vignette re creating and this one includes a mirror Mum picked up from the markets a long time ago, my French market basket filled with Peonies, a cute little blue and white jar I bought from my favourite shop which is no more, Always Flowers in Kiama NSW and the little Artichoke canister was a giveaway prize from The Swedish Room and some of my decorating books with a white theme from Atlanta Bartlett, Cabbages and Roses and Gail Abbott.

I am very happy with this arrangement and I will be showing you what is in the reflection tomorrow!!

  • Hi Ness,

    Love all the changes that you have made!!! It all looks so nice and I agree with you about moving your $5.00 sideboard behind the chairs…it certainly defines the space more. It’s all so exciting when family come home and when they leave it’s the opposite…it’s that horrible flat feeling, not nice. Hope the re-arranging made you feel better Ness..there must be something in the air as yesterday I had another go at re-arranging the mantle in the lounge room!!! There must be something in the air (haha)
    Take care
