And this is what happened after I played around for awhile with some of my old-new favorites:
Now after restraining myself to keep it "guy simple", here it is just slightly dolled up,
Here is a longer shot for a better full view,
and here on the other side of the dining room, the buffet before shot,
This is the after and yes the lampshade is the same, so just imagine it in right proportion to the lamp and hopefully a more neutral color. Not many changes so much as to the top of the buffet, I'll deal with the rest of it later when I have time (she suppresses more snickering...time, what's that?)
Does the chalkboard look familiar? I apparently was so caught up in my mental decorating yesterday, that I actually thought that a large chalkboard would look great over the buffet, too bad I don't have one.... Then I caught myself and had to laugh hard at my absentee thought. Yeah, it was a true "duh moment". I mean, I make chalkboards..... Moving on, here is the Girlfriend radio cabinet now guest room bedside table. Again, remember I have a small house, so work with me here, ok,
I like to keep the guest area on the light side since I expect my guest to bring their own stuff and their stuff needs a place to land. The books however, are humorous and light reading with a vase filled with fresh flowers suitable for the Guy who will be staying in here.
Here is my favorite corner of the living room fluffed up with more "guy like" flowers.
Have a great day!
