So to curb my shopping, I have been shopping and dreaming online! I am also stuck in a rut with trying to decorate and redo our family room. So instead of looking for inspiration, I shop for the future kitchen makeover decor items!!! Yes, at times I am a bit scattered!
We have a small kitchen/breakfast area with a counter height bar. I currently have 2 bar stools at the counter and if many people are in that area, it is hard to get around. So I want new stools without backs on them. It won't make more room physically but I think it will visually! At CSN Dining Rooms Direct, I found these great Carolina Cottage Hawthorn chairs.
They have the french country feel without taking up so much space! I also stumbled upon this beautiful french country bench. I would love to have a bench but unfortunately we have no where to put it!! I just think it is so pretty!
Okay, done window shopping for awhile!! Maybe if I start saving my money now...back to working on my projects!
I am so very excited to tell all of you that Roeshel from The DIY Show Off is featuring my dresser makeover! If you have a chance, stop by and leave a nice comment thanking her for featuring me! She just has some of the greatest features on her blog! I am just thrilled to be a small one on there! If you missed my dresser makeover, just click HERE for the details. I am so happy with how it turned out!!
My last thing to ramble on about today is my camera. I only have a Kodak Easyshare camera that I bought about 4 years ago. I like it but compared to what some of the other bloggers have, I don't think it measures up!! However, it could be the user! Anyway...I decided to purchase (part of why we have no money) just a wide angle lens to fit my camera. I have noticed in some blogs how their pictures pick up more of the room than mine. I ordered it on ebay for $35 and I am pleased with the results! I just need to play with it more.
Here is a picture of my dining room without the wide lens.
Here is the same position of my dining room with the new wide angle lens.
Big difference to me. However, I need to read more on the settings for my camera to see if I need to adjust anything for the lens. This is a learning process!
Okay enough rambling for today! I am going to buckle down and try to work on projects that don't require purchasing ANYTHING to finish them!!
Have a wonderful day!Bonnie
