Happy Little Things

I feel so boring, lately.  All I want to talk about is our apartment and the renovations we’ve been making.  But that said, it’s kind of exciting.  Also – I spent the past 7 months without a dresser, so finally having one is pretty much the best thing in the world.  We’re in the thick of it right now.  Our couch, chaise lounges, bed, and my dresser arrived last weekend and we spent the entire weekend cleaning, arranging, and throwing things out.  We still have so much more decluttering, purging, and decorating to do, but it’s starting to come together quite nicely… I thought it would be fun to share some photos of where we’re at right now.

Isn’t she lovely?  Finally – a place to store my precious cargo.

Random baubles (BaubleBar earrings, an agate necklace I made, my Eddie Borgo bracelet,) waiting to be put away.

I might be a little too obsessed with studs (particularly those that are nautical or animal-related.)

Styling our coffee table!

    Your coffee table looks really really good!  Love it!  I live in a rowhouse, so have never been able to have a coffee table due to space limitations!

    • graceatwood says 5.7.12

      It actually wasn’t a DIY post… I just strung together some chains and agate stones. Maybe I’ll do a post on it!

  31. Alyson -- TAGG says 5.7.12

    Love all the home glimpses! I’m so envious of gorgeous coffee tables….. little kids and nice books do not go well together! 🙁 ADORE that table though and I’ve been on the hunt for a bust, too. So fun for jewels.

  32. johanna says 5.7.12

    I feel the same lately – home projects have me in a creative rut but it’s exciting stuff, no? By the way, loving your stud collection. I’d wear any and all of ’em!

    • graceatwood says 5.7.12

      thanks, Johanna! I am so obsessed with studs 🙂

    Your coffee table had managed to look super cool and also practical/usable. I really like the use of coasters as a part of the stylescape, they blend pretty seamlessly.
