Home Decor

Today let’s look at some of the things Denise has done around the house. We will begin in the bathroom, which she painted a pale, seafoam green. Notice the playful undersea motif with authentic 50’s plaster cast, airbrushed starfish, seahorses and shells.

We kept the knick-knack shelf on the back wall of the bathroom.

This is one of my favorites off the shelf.

Next, we move into the bedroom, which is nearly complete. Denise found this attractive vanity chair in Canada. I think it really sets the room off.

A few weeks ago, Denise returned to the thrift store where we found the bedroom set. As she entered, she saw a thrift store employee walking out to put the mirror in the photograph out for sale. Denise immediately recognized the mirror as belonging to the set she had bought a couple of weeks previously! It had gotten separated in the back room, but we were happy to reunite it with it’s family.

Finally, we have this elegant whatchamakalit for Denny’s stylish perfume decanters.

  1. I like everything but the chair. It just doesn’t look comfortable, even though it looks cool. I guess it would make a better prop than a seat.

    Well, the vanity chair is for putting on shoes and makeup (I probably won’t be using it too often). Denise tried it out immediately and assures me that it is quite comfy.

    Zombie, the chair is my favorite! I would force myself to be comfotable in it, even if I weren’t.
    Bo, I can’t see the elegant Whatchamaclit. No pic.
    You guys should see the so cool red vinyl easy chair I got for 10.00 at the Sierra Presp. yard sale that you poo-pood. There was open desire on Jennifer Fay’s face. See, it pays to not work so you can do these sales early. Go on Welfare, you two.

    Those pictures are so calming! I feel like I’m looking at a design magazine–which are my favorite mags to look at.
    🙂
    Well done.

    See, at least someone thinks I’m amusing!

    Michele, can any good thing come from the Sierra Prez yard sale ’05? I seriously doubt it.

    Hey, Sadie… design mags are my favorite… I love Metropolitan Home and Cottage Style. Sometime you ought to sit down with Mike and I… just go through and compare what we like and don’t like.

    That sounds like fun. Have you ever seen that new magazine called Domino?
    It’s from the creators of the fashion mag Lucky.
    I’ll see if my mom is done with her copy and I’ll let you look at it.

    Anything good from the S.P. ’05 yard sale?! Wha?? Perhaps you got there too late Bo, (Michele, Kathi and I were the first to arrive by 7)and we found some real treasures, I tell you. Sadly though, I’m not computer savvy enough, nor do I have a blog to display my lovely wares. Guess you’ll just have to come over and take a look.
