Are you glad that the weekend is finally here? I know I am. My son had to be at school by 6:45 this morning to board a bus to take him to The Tennessee Aquarium for his 5th grade field trip. So it was an early day for us! He didn't return until 6:30 tonight! He had a blast though. I took advantage of him being gone all day and got some things done around the house and yard.
My husband took me out to breakfast and on the way home, we passed a neighbor having a garage sale. I rarely go to garage sales (for one reason, I'm not a morning person and you have to get up early to get anything good at a garage sale). However, this neighbor had something sitting out in her driveway that sparked my interest.
This little beauty was for sale! It was in very good condition and very inexpensive, so I bought it! I plan on cleaning it up and repainting it black to match the rest of the furniture on my front porch. I also need to add a cushion and maybe a couple of cute pillows.
I've recently been adding some apple green accent colors to some of my rooms. Nothing overwhelming though. I love how it looks with all of the white and grey in my house.
Just a pillow here, a platter there. A few green hydrangeas and apples.
Even some pretty green patterned Anna Griffin file folders!
It has been so nice to be able to add accents in a room for a subtle change without having to get out a paint brush! That is the beauty of having white walls and neutral furnishings.
Well, I'm off to begin my weekend. Looking forward to sleeping late tomorrow morning.
Thanks for stopping by!
