Around Here Lately

Since I'm way behind in blogging, here is a recap of things lately:

1. New faucet. Our old kitchen faucet finally died. I didn't want to spend money on a new one when we are planning to get new counters, sink and faucet in the next year or two. But the nice guy at Lowe's explained that a new one can be installed now in our current 4-hole setup and then used later for the 1-hole installation that I prefer when we get new counters. So I was able to spend money on a higher-priced (nothing crazy) faucet, knowing I will be able to use it for years to come. Mike installed it, saving us a little money.



2. Entryway update. I added this round, gold mirror that Emily Clarke featured in a room reveal on her blog. I knew this old, outdated faux leather ottoman and black mirror needed to be replaced, and when I saw this mirror, I knew I had a winner.



Out with the old, in with the new! (And I hung it a little lower so that shorties like me can actually see themselves without standing on tip-toes.)


While I was at it, I decided to put the show cabinet on this wall, freeing up space on the opposite wall. I envision a bench over there, but it needs to be narrow so I'm still debating/window-shopping.


3. Wreath swap. This wreath was hanging on the large mirror in the family room, but it was too small. I bought some cute striped ribbon at Michael and hung it on the smaller chalkboard instead.
