I have nothing new going on with my home decorating. My LA trip is in 17 days so money is tight. I’ve been thinking of paint and buffets still. I most recently have been thinking of velvet drapes for the living room. An extra layer of texture and added funk. I was thinking deep purple (aubergine?) but the internet has turned up no such drapery.
I did buy a few mini plants because I want to remove everything from my built-ins and have a solid plant wall! That will be so dreamy. I restyled the shelves with some of my books and knick knacks. I thought I had a lot of animals but now that I have these shelves to fill, I am at a loss for what to put in them! The shelves are a horrible height for books, hardly any of mine will stand. So I’ve resorted to laying some books, some pictures, and some of my animal collection. And of course the plants! I need more plants! More more more!
I only tackled one built-in. The other is a pitiful excuse for shelvery. That isn’t a word.
A friend most recently sent me the Staffordshire dogs. I have been wanting a pair for ages and now I have them! They’re so cute!! I’ll definitely be adding more plants and succulents to these shelves as months go by.
Oh my gosh, I’ve just found the best thing ever. If I could remove these shelves, I could definitely have a plant wall with these planters from woolly pocket!
In other news, about 2 weeks ago, my heart was broken and dreams were crushed when I happened upon a thrift store in my new neighborhood and inside was a record player for $14. FOURTEEN DOLLARS, PEOPLE. I died. Let’s ring this up, take it away, Joe. What? It’s sold! How could this be! This is the “buffet” my beautiful mid-century eclectic pad needs!
I didn’t care that it needed new handles or the record player probably didn’t work. It was $14 and the detailing was perfection! I keep going back but nothing yet comes close to this score. That lucky loser who got this piece! Gah! I hate you! 😛
