In any project I do for our home or someone else’s, it’s important for me to show that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to get a look you’re going for. It’s so much more fun and makes me way happier to help people realize that what they have is usually great, it maybe just needs some refreshing. My sweet friend Kristen already knows that this is my motto and invited me over to refresh a few built-ins in their beautiful home.
Here is the before picture of the large living room built in. It looks fine but Kristen said that eventually she just started putting things in and it just lost its cohesiveness. There are really important pieces displayed and not for one second did I consider not displaying them. It all just needed to be rearranged.
begin, she took everything down from every cabinet and mantel and put
it all on their kitchen table. Love this idea. Such an easy way to start
fresh. Think of how different your house would look if you collected
all the decor and relocated it. Plus, you can get some pretty serious dusting done this way too.
I’m kind of inspired to do this in my own house except I’m always
moving stuff around anyway so it might not make as much of a
difference….Annnnnnnd I don’t like dusting.
The picture below is of the built-in in their bathroom. (I was dangerously close to falling into their toilet while taking this picture.) Anything for my art. *to be read in a fancy voice. Again, totally fine but fun to refresh.
