Accessory addicted

There’s nothing I love more than accessories for the home. I’m slightly addicted. In fact we actually have a bank account specifically for this habit of mine.

I was recently at TJ MAXX Homegoods looking for a few things for the nursery. I was searching for a table side lamp (Which I ended up getting at Target), picture frames for her gallery wall & a hamper.

While I didn’t end up finding much for the nursery, I did score a really well made hamper for $50, some Vera Wang sheets & a $22 sunburst mirror!

The mirror had been marked down from $60 to $35 to $25 all because it had a slight crack in the bottom right corner. At the register I asked for 10% off making it $22

Such a steal! I decided to hang it over our couch and accent it with some candles. I was over those photos that were up there, so I added them to the gallery love wall. So much better!

IMG_0134Those gold candle holders are just small mason jars I had around the house. I used glitter glue & some gold glitter for some added sparkle.IMG_0140

For Christmas I got these gold Moroccan poufs for the living room & white lacquered tray from West Elm

The poufs are from Overstock. At first I was a little concerned that they were too gold, but I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on them. It took a couple weeks to get used to them. These are amazing if you’re short on space, because they can provide extra seating if you have guests over. My favorite part is that they fit perfectly under the waterfall table.

What do you think? IMG_0110We are expecting our maternity photos anytime now.. so anxious to see them! Look for those in next week’s posts. Also I’ll be sharing a no-sew crib skirt. It was so easy!! I’m so glad we made our own.

My weekend + Our living room before & after pics!!

I had such an amazing weekend! I spent Saturday with a couple of friends up in Sonoma. One of my bffs Allison & wedding vendor friends Erin & Yasmin were putting on a wedding event/fair called the Lab Event at Cline Cellars Winery – which just so happened to be right across the street from where we got married! This event was unlike any wedding fair I’d ever been to. It was honestly more like a party than anything else. Great food. great wine. dancing. fashion show + all the pretty wedding details made by local wedding vendors. The girls did an incredible job! Honestly it kind of made me want to re-plan my wedding. Well……… not really. Ha!

Now on to our living room update  Рas promised I took some much better pictures of our living room!!

Well let me first remind you what the living room used to look like

{BEFORE}
Notice the horrific ceiling fan in the mirror.

{AFTER}

Ta-dah!! The sofa is from Zgallerie – Oscar Sofa, vintage chandelier is from the Alameda Point Antique Faire – $70

Bronze nailhead trim & turned legs

If you are considering the Oscar Sofa for your home, I definitely recommend it. It’s timeless, chic and oh so glamorous! The soft cushy pillows make it ridiculously comfortable. This is the perfect couch if you are looking for pretty & practical (well besides the white fabric.)

We painted the aqua accent wall with Benjamin Moore’s Bird’s Egg. For the sunburst mirror DIY click here + my picture frame gallery wall DIY here.

Modern Linen beige tufted lounge chairs are from Overstock – Super comfortable, in case you were wondering!

Waterfall glass coffee table by Viva Modern is from Ebay

Lattice grey rug is from Pottery Barn Teen. Who would have thought?!

I spray painted this metal table from Pier One with Rust-oleum Metallic Gold Spray Paint

This is what it looked like before

This gorgeous shabby chic Pottery Barn inspired mantel was made by my bff Lizzie & her incredibly talented husband

I purchased this mirrored silver side table from TJ Maxx 4 years ago! It’s crazy how a gorgeous sofa can make everything in the living room suddenly look 100 times better.

I spray painted the vintage milk bottle my mom gave me (she was about to throw them out!) The wood flowers are from my wedding bouquet

So now I’m thinking about getting a mirrored chest of drawers for the corner by the gallery wall. It’s so bare over there.. plus it would be nice to have some extra storage (opps, sorry for the crooked pic!)

I’m thinking something like this

Thoughts? I could always go the less expensive route – Find something on Craigslist, paint & update the hardware. I just can’t stop thinking about the mirrored chest of drawers! So damn gorg. We’ll see.
