Cabinet, Collage & Gadgets.

Our living room is well loved.
It's the TV room, kid fighting room, Xbox room & movie central.
It must be livable and adorable at the same time.
I've been slowly making some changes to it. 
Nothing major and I'm not nearly done, but here's a few teasers:
  • The giant white cabinet.
Shamefully, this fantastic curvy detailed upper portion 
has been stored in the basement! {gasp!}
We've had this for several years.  Recently, only the bottom was used as a TV stand.
Coming to my senses, I brought it back upstairs and painted it white.
(the hydrangea's are dried and from my garden.)

It was originally a 199o's white washed stain.  The Cabinet Maker built it.
I basically had him look away as I painted it.
 But hey, it had to happen.

  • The Photo Collage
With moving the big cabinet up, we moved the TV to the wall where the collage was.
Plus, I thought it would look cool hung vertical w/ the 'public phones' sign added. 
We actually keep the phone nearby and thought it be a clue for wayward visiting children.

It's a bit busy w/ the Fall decor, but.... Here's a quick wall shot:

  • Over and OUT.
You may have spied my new 'OUT' letters above my front door in my subway sign post.
(did you miss it?)
They are deliciously vintage.
I plan to paint them black to match the front door and shabby them up.

Some arrangements I have goin' on at the moment:

The little hammers and gadgets are from my dad's garage.
I nabbed the 'hammer' flashcard for just this purpose at Junk Bonanza.

I am not a fan of the current skull theme that is en vogue at the moment.
But, I saw this book at the book sale the other day.
I thought it would be just the right kind of creepy for a Halloween display.

Happy Friday Everyone.
Rock your Weekend.

xo Jeanne.

It's no fun getting 40 comments on how super handy it is to purchase viagra.)
