Reaaranging Furniture

Yesterday, I rearranged my living room wall. I moved the sofa table behind the coach to the far wall and added light pink shutters to my shabby shutter shelf creation.
  Next, I painted the inside of my faux fireplace white.
 I found an antique table ($5) that flips up and down this weekend at a tag sale.
I painted it white and I would love to add a beautiful shabby floral applique to the center.
While I had the white paint out I shabbied the wall sconces. I am on the look out for a set of 4 matching shabby mini lamp shades to add to the top.
My husband works long hours. Yesterday, I saw him for about 20 minutes.
When I am home with the kids I play with them and paint in between housework. Rearranging and painting furniture helps me stay sane.
 I snapped these pictures yesterday to see how everything looked. I was not planning to use them, but my excitement got the best of me.

I also wanted to share with you my dear mother in law has opened an etsy shop with beautiful hand painted Shabby Chic signs. She has an amazing God given talent her work is just gorgeous!

  5. Everything looks beautiful Olivia ~ I wish I could do some re-arranging in our living room, but where we have our faux fireplace, and BIG tv, there really isn't much I can do :( I'm one of those person's who LOVES to rearrange, and it's driving me crazy not to be able to do anything in that room, LOL :)

    Wishing you a great weekend sweet friend!!

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  8. Olivia,
    Sounds like you were on a painting frenzy but everything came out so beautiful!
    That table was a steal for that price and I pictured beautiful pink roses painted on it before you even mentioned about putting something on the top/front of the table. I do adore your fireplace and your MIL is so talented!!

    Have a good weekend, my friend!!

  20. Hi Olivia,
    Oh your home is so beautiful!! I love all the pink and white! It's so dreamy.

  21. Looks like you had a happy day re-arranging. I used to do it all the time and from time to tome still slide things around or just move things a little just for a change. Love that you painted the fireplace white. Your MIL's roses are beautiful. I wish I could paint roses. Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful week Olivia.

  22. Your home is very romantic ... you have a beautiful sense of style.

  23. I definitely understand having to have an outlet to "stay sane!" I have my website to help me in the same way! Dear Bebe is a joy to be with but having an adult hobby is a joy as well.

    Your MIL is amazing! Love those signs. She should do very well!
