Happy Day, friends!
Can you believe that Halloween is only 2 1/2 weeks away?!
I'm really excited to share what's going on in our sitting room, especially since I'm not really one to decorate a lot for Halloween.
Yup, my son was thrilled and surprised when I took a stab at a Halloween mantel, which then turned into Halloween room, dressed in black, white and orange!
Not only is it all ready for Halloween, but there have been a few other changes, too! One thing you might notice is that I replaced our curtains with this awesome fabric from IKEA ... I seem to be having a little romance with buffalo check these days!
My sweet witch was happy to come out of our stuffy bin and onto our mirrored accent chest, where she can watch over everyone ... we better be good or she might open the pages of her book and cast a spell!
Of course, it's not Halloween without teeth rotting candy corn, now is it?
Another change in this room is that we added floating shelves! I'm a big fan of them ... you get the "look" or function of a bookcase, with the expense.
Our little Martha Stewart mice have had fun playing around on them.
Another big change in here is that we added plank above our newly added faux fireplace! Woo Hoo ... we love it!
Lowe's cut our wood for us, and then my hubs and I knocked it out in a few hours ... big impact without the big price tag!
Of course, I *had* to add my favorite faux brick panel behind the fireplace surround and then painted it with leftover Rustoleum gloss paint. And, of course, a roaring "chalk" fire was in order, too!
Over on this wall, I added two black and white prints from IKEA to each side of the "Pure White" vintage secretary that I recently moved in here.
And, because I had painted the back of the secretary duck egg blue some time ago (annnnd didn't feel like painting it again), I simply taped black and white scrapbook paper over top of it to tie in with the black and white theme!
It won't be long before the orange will be replaced with Christmas red!
