Hi AR people! I'm a bit tardy with this as a lot of you had asked me to take more pictures of my not-so-new-anymore place when it was more in order. I've been still working on it slowly, and it's really coming together now, decorative wise. Still not complete,
I still need something for above the living room couch and I've got nothing decorative in the bedroom still, but it's really looking nice I think! Especially since my mom and my aunt came over this weekend and did some cleaning up! :)
So here's just a few pics, mostly of cool wall items. I'm not the best photographer, keep in mind!
Here's my dining room table and chairs, they hadn't been delivered when I last posted pictures of my place. I haven't actually used it for dining yet, but I like it! The centrepiece I got for Christmas, it three flameless candles (not lit... they each take
3 batteries, screw that) with rocks in the base. And I forgot to put the window shade down apparently...
This picture overlooks the dining room table.
This is the "bar" area of the dining room, kind of. It's a bookshelf, but on top is a cute silver tray with small shotglasses that my friends bought that are shaped like other liquor glasses - there's a mini-highball glass, a mini 'beer boot', a mini martini
glass and a mini wine glass. And next to the silver tray is a cake server shaped like a high heeled shoe. Naturally the "bar" area seemed like the best place for the wine picture! You can also see on the adjoining wall a nice canvas print of an electric guitar.
This is the other bookcase on the other side of the dining room. On top of it is a funky white lamp from Ikea I got for Christmas and above are two decorative stones from Bed Bath and Beyond (nearly everything on my walls comes from BB&B. A store opened near
me recently and my aunt went nuts buying me prints and stuff). I now realize the picture is sideways... the two stones, the top one has an acoustic guitar and says 'Play' and the lower one has a vinyl record and says 'Music'
These are three hooks from BB&B, shaped like guitar heads. My keys are hanging from two of them. I've got nothing so far to put on the third.
These are hanging in the corner of the living room. They're impossible to read in the picture but they are both quotes dealing with peace. The green one is a Dalai lama quote and the orange one is by John F Kennedy.
And next the entertainment area... these are above the TV as you can see. I wish the top one was spelled the Canadian way, but what can ya do...
And just over to the right of the TV, these are above the DVD shelf. And the cat face is a cat statue on top of the shelf.
And finally, this one will be all of yours favourite I think! My kitchen wall clock! Isn't it cool?!
Well that's my homier place :) Hope you like the pictures, they took forever to load!
