Now that the big redecorating push in our house is complete, there's just a few little tweaks left to do.
For instance, we have a big, gilt-framed mirror in the front entry that was always a reddish gold. It didn't look so great in our new color scheme, which leans much more toward blues and grays. I used a little silver-colored Rub-n-Buff to take away some of the brassiness:
Here's the Before: And here's the After:
On the hutch in our family room, I used a hinged basket to store the pugs' poop bags, treats, etc. But the basket wasn't very attractive, so I searched for an alternative. I was intrigued by this shoe-shiner's box I found at a local vintage shop:
And it looked great on the hutch. But I couldn't open it up fully to reach inside:
Oops. So I returned the box and found this adorable tin can instead. Its navy-on-white color scheme fits right in. And the fact that it says "Dog Biscuits"? Well, that just sealed the deal!:
A few more tweaks like this, and we'll be finished.
Until next time.
