Slowly and sale by sale, I’m chipping away at all the blank walls in our house. I finished this area this weekend and thought I’d give you a little tour. I’ve been eyeballing our house to figure out the best place to hang a “curtain” of plants. I settled on this window and hung them across the top. But I couldn’t stop there!
I put this little area together with half off sales and things we already have.
People naturally want to sit here under this window so a bench made sense. My patience paid off and this bench, that happens to fit perfectly in height and length, finally went on sale for half off! (It’s still on sale, by the way. I listed all the sources at the bottom.)
The pillows actually have a sweet story. I found one at Home Goods, but when I brought it home it looked dinky on the long bench even though it was 38 inches. I went to another store and they were out too. So Marcello drove 30 minutes and found one at another store for me! He knows the way to my heart.
And the scripture sign was half off at Hobby Lobby, and I believe it still is! It is important to me to have God’s very words written on the walls of our house, not just clever quotes. I believe there is power in these words. And I love when I’m sitting, staring off into space, and my eyes land on these words of life.
The plant hangers were $5-7 each and I already had the plants from my plant wall in my old bathroom (that has been pinned over 86,000 times). I also already had that white table from years and years ago. I think I’ve painted it three times!
Above is a view of the blank wall that plagued me since we moved in!
Over to the right is a peek at what I’ve got going on in the dining room. Hopefully I can do a post on that next week!
