For as long as I can remember I have wanted a preserved boxwood wreath, but they are quite pricey. I have researched how to preserve them, and it seemed like too much trouble. So after seeing a few gorgeous fresh ones on our Tour of Homes last weekend, I decided to try making my own. It was much easier than I thought that it would be, and for a first try... I don't think it is half bad! It does need to be filled in a bit, but not too shabby in my opinion! (excuse my dusty china cabinet)
Next on the list was repainting an old table. Our grandfather clock used to reside in this spot on the wall, but it was blocking too much air flow from our vents. Our quick solution was to bring this old table up from the basement until we found something else. It happened to fit perfectly in the spot, and I liked how its nice shape stood out against a lot of the hard lines in our house. If you have seen our house, you can quickly see that we have a lot of black and grey furniture (see china cabinet above), so I wanted something that would stand out.
more, more! Here's to hoping that I can sit still long enough to relax!
