What I Buy Wednesdays

How about a couple little sneak peaks of my latest re-decorating project? We're starting with the family room. New furniture and drapes are on order. The painters are lined up and my friend, Christy---numero uno designer---is handling all the work. Our plan is to lighten up the room with paint and lighter furniture. Plus, we're just tired of it all and ready for a complete change.

Here are just a few of the details--keep in mind, these are not my rooms:
This is a mercury glass table lamp. 
We're replacing our existing side tables with these--in hopes to hide some of the "stuff" we like to have at our fingertips. That lamp will be on Butch's table. I am keeping my floor lamp.
I'm very excited about this ceiling fixture--replacing the fan and light we currently have. We rarely used the fan anyway. 
We have a chair that we plan to recover with this fabric.
When Butch and I were at the fabric store, I noticed this:
The very day I was getting ready to leave for the beach, this bag was on the cutting counter of the shop. Shunk Gulley is the restaurant right next to our condo complex. We walked up from the beach one day and had lunch there. Crazy coincidence.

Okay, that's it for now. I'll be sure to take some before pictures so I have them with the after. I always forget to do that. 


  1. Sometimes you just need to replace a few items to give a room a whole new look. I love that lamp, it would work in so many different styles of rooms. Don't forget to do those 'before' photos!

  2. Pretty choices so far. Can't wait to see how it all comes together. I am surprised you got painters lined up so fast, and found somebody to do upholstery work. But then Nashville is a much bigger place than Evansville. We are having some painting done, but it will be several months until we make it to the top of the list. Still, I guess I need to decide if I am changing colors. Probably not, I used mostly Benjamin Moore historical colors, and they are proving to be timeless.
