building a nest.

Yesterday morning Gabe dropped by my apartment with an armful of lilies, fresh from the market! I hadn't taken pictures of my place, because it still needs a few homey touches. But I took advantage of yesterday's immaculate morning sunlight and fresh flowers...here are a few frames!

This chair was one of my first DIY projects a while back. I dug its lines and knew I could give it a quick face lift. One can of spray paint and a half of a yard of fabric made a world of difference!

I have a bit of a thing for framed art from thrift and antique stores. I snagged this mirror last year for only four dollars! A whole pile of art awaits my next hanging whim...but my indecisive nature has kept me from making any long term nail holes.
This is my tiny read/think/write corner. Generous co-workers funded the armchair with an IKEA gift card several months ago...I was ever so thankful as I was severely lacking extra seating. My living room is rather minuscule, but it's probably for the best. Forced decor editing!

  5. Wow! What an adorable little nest, and it sounds like it was affordable too! I love the first photo - the little frames and knick knacks on the console table look so cheerful. And I always like to see people do elegant things with IKEA furniture. Great place!
