Little Changes

A few weeks ago Cassity over at Remodelaholic wrote this post about a room she decorated for an event sponsored by HGTV Home Flooring Line by Shaw Carpets. While the area rug was the least thing I like about the room, there was something in it I loved...

Check out the easel in the corner...can you say love!?! The subway art is rocking too, but I love the idea of displaying something on an easel. Hmmmmmmmm...once again, i was pretty sure I had a great, old easel in my attic. And yes, this would make the third time this month I had "shopped" there, which has been great on the budget.


Mr. T found the easel, got it out of its hiding spot, and put it proudly in the living room. After I cleaned it (and he reminded he 200 times who bought it - him!) it was ready to go. Which brings me to this great antique mirror my parents picked up when I was little. The glass was cracked, but my dad built the frame, and he and my mom glued pictures from my first few years to make a giant collage. My dad died in 1994 and I have always loved this piece from him. It was never in usable shape, but a few years ago my mom sent it to a very talented man that specializes in rebuilding and refinishing old furniture. He fixed up the frame and my mom gave it to me for Christmas then. It has hung on the wall since, but I think it has finally found a perfect home on the easel from Mr. T.
