I’m sure if you’ve been reading my blog for awhile you’ve noticed some changes, specifically to the design of the blog.  The blog has always been a bit of a hobby for me but after I had my son I decided to scale back on my other jobs and to focus more on the blog aspect of my work. (I still do design consultations but I’ll dedicate a post to that on a later date.)

I’ve been working on my home tour page and trying to give you all as many details as I can so please bear with me because there may be some duplicate posts so I can add information (that I may have left out) like today when I talk about where my items from where the office comes from.  I’m doing this because I’ve gotten at least 10 emails this week asking where I’ve bought certain items, so I’m going to assume an image got pinned on pinterest.

If I’ve added a link it means the item is still available if not it’s probably because the items is too old or is from a thrift or antique store.

The Safety Red  (Sherwin Williams) Desk is from an auction I went to.  I sprayed the hardware silver.

The Loyal Blue (Sherwin Williams) Campaigner Bookshelves were $110.00 and I got it from a local 2nd hand furniture store in Indianapolis.

Red laquered box on bookshelf – Home Goods

I made the curtains from sheets from Walmart.  They were no sew, the back was fused with white fabric and I put grommets in the corners and folded them in half and hooked them through the hook.
