I love our new house, BUT the ceilings are so much taller than our last house so everything we owned looks so tiny now. I have been in the process of updating this over the last 2 years! I went to am amazing vintage sale last week and got a steal of a deal on some art! I am super picky when it comes to art, but I love beautiful frames and these were perfect! They are distressed black with tiny gold beads around the border and the mattes are stunning! Custom matting is so important!
Originally they retailed for $348 each!!!! INSANE....but I was able to get both art prints for $49 at the sale!!! That works for me :)
So....although I love the frames and the dog prints were cute...they are not my style. Time to change them out. I had bought an antique French wedding document at an antique store a long time ago and had no idea what I was going to do with it at the time, but this was the perfect thing!
So I removed the dog prints and added this document. I tore it in half and framed each side. I love the official stamp on it.
The scale of these frames is much better for the size of our room and ceilings.
Here is the before of our room:
Here is the after:
I still need to add another mirror behind the other nightstand, but this room is close to done!
Here are some more pics
Here are some other examples of how I update our furniture since the scale was so off in the new house.
Here is our master bedroom in our old house....the nightstands looked great and I loved them
Here are those same nightstands in our bedroom in the new house compared to the new nightstands we got....
You can see how much better the new ones look. I have since added a mirror behind one of the nightstands, but I need another one on the other side. I LOVE our new nightstands! They are so beautiful and I love all the storage. Here are some detail shots of them.
Same thing happened with the mirror above my dresser.
Here is a photo of it in our old house
and here is a side by side picture of the old mirror and the new mirror in our new bedroom.
Scale is so important. I will show you more updates and I continue to update our old décor to fit our new house.
Thanks for stopping by!
