new art in the living room

This week started off miserable (food poisoning...) but ended on a high note when I added some new art to the living room. The first new piece of art is from the etsy shop of Jennifer Chase. It's a beautiful simple shiny gold heart. This was to replace another etsy print that I noticed had somehow developed a stain and needed replacing. This gold heart fits perfect with our other pieces:

The next new piece of art came from a store called high jinx here in town. They have the coolest stuff and even better, some of the proceeds of their sales go to help the homeless. My sister Kim found this piece and she knew that one of us had to have it so I told her she didn't need more art, that I could use it in the living room. I decided it's new home would be on the buffet. I also added some photos that my sister printed out for me - my fav Simon photo and two of my 20 year old cat who we had to put down last year. The last newbie is a greeting card that again came from my sister from a local artist - Drew Mosley.

I'm dying to paint/stain this teak buffet. It's just too orange...is that wrong?!?!?!? It would look so cool painted black...


  1. Wow, love the corset painting!

  2. I wouldn't paint the buffet. Restain it, sure. But I think the wood is beautiful.

    1. I think restaining is probably the best idea and then if I screw that up, paint as a last resort.
