Four Things In the Living Room (and a Look Back)

As we wait for the final steps in our kitchen (ahem, the whole back door thing), we poured a little effort into the living room this past weekend! FOUR small changes, but kind of big, too. ONE.

Flea Find to Reclaimed Wood Mirror

A long, long, time ago, Scott and I almost left the flea market empty handed – can you believe it?

Adding Trim We Didn’t Know We’d Need
