This & That {Dining Nook}

Hey all, just a quick update on a few areas in the apartment. Now that Christmas is long over, I've had a chance to change up a bit of the decor in a few spots. About a week before Christmas we found out my Dad and Step-Mom were coming for a visit. Jordan and I put our butts into high gear and finally finished a few projects we've been meaning to do since we moved in, 4 months ago...


The biggest project was working on the dining nook. The left corner there used to be piled high with random boxes and bags. Lots of things we just didn't want to deal with, like ever. I'm not going to lie, majority of it ended up in the bedroom (the room that is completely unfinished...) But some of it got unboxed and finally displayed. Most of which has been put up since North Carolina


I had originally planned on putting stripes on this wall. Similar to this ::

But I think the shelves and all the stuff on them would look too cluttered with the stripes. I like how there are only the simple vases in the picture above. I might take the shelves down and paint the stripes, but I'm not sure. I'm going to live with it as is for a while.

Once the Christmas stuff was gone I was able to decorate our "sofa table" again.



My Step-Mom gifted me this great set of silver antlers. Jordan and Story got me the mercury bowl and white antler set I'd been eying. Jordan's Grandma gave me the domino decorating book (which has not stayed on the table long, I keep taking it to look through) The lamp is old and used to be in this corner. I've since changed a few things over there as well. All of which are temporary. I have big plans for the living room area. 


We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us, and I have a few big projects to share with you. They are all over the place! Stay tuned!
