The wall



My mother-n-law who just bought a home was looking for decorating ideas on www.houzz.com and came across a picture of my home. I think a few of you have seen it, it's the wall that divides the entry way and the diningroom. Well after finding the image it made me realize I need to take another one and show you the changes I've made since then.



I've made a lot changes that I like, but I'm not sure photograph so well. In person these new things look so much better. First off I got rid of those two white chairs. They looked cute in photographs but were very very wobbly and had that "I found them in a dumpster" vibe up close.

Other changes:
Picked up a Room and Board look-alike chair from HomeGoods.
A John-Paul Philippé art rug from West Elm.
Made new custom floating shelves
Accent wire table from Target



In this last photo I rolled up the carpet to protect it. Very soon we will have the new fireplace insert installed. Hope to test this sucker out tonight!
