a rainy day's work

Our nice summer days have been alternating with rainy ones, so it seems good to spend that time organizing and redecorating. Redecorating at my house mostly means rearranging and scavenging in the basement ~ a 'use what you have'-sort of decorating...so, yesterday when I decided to change this corner in my bedroom, I headed downstairs...

I found this yard saled table, which had gone from the living room to Stephanie's room...

...to the basement. I also grabbed this mirror, whose place in the living room was traded for some artwork. I added one of my flea market baskets, pulled up my ($3) yard sale slipper chair..

...and am content with my 'low-budget' change.

  3. Very nice. It seems much more to scale. In the previous incarnation the dressing table seemed a little small with the large mirror. It look really great.

  7. Your corner looks so inviting. I could pull up a chair and write a nice long letter. You do a marvelous job decorating.

  8. Dear Deb, When you move things around they acquire a different look, don't they? The best thing about redecorating is that it costs $0.00. Absolutely wonderful!

    Thanks for sharing - you have inspired me to redecorate :)

  14. You always do a lovely job of decorating Debbie, and I enjoy it very much when you invite us inside to see what you've been up to.
    I do alot of use what you have decorating too. I rotate my things seasonally, and that helps to keep things fresh in to my eyes.

  15. Deb,
    I found your blog a few days ago and it is lovely. I spent a few hours purusing your older posts and it was great fun!
    I did want to ask about the mug cozy you have in the photograph...did you make it? If so can you share where you got the pattern? I can think of many tea and coffee lovers in my life that would find a mug cozy to be a wonderful thing.
    Have a beautiful day!

    Sarah :)
