Library Classic With a Twist

When I saw this globe mobile at Z Gallerie last fall, I knew that it would be perfect in our traditional-looking library. I loved the look of the old-world globes on it, and by hanging it from the ceiling, it freed up floor space that a traditional globe would have taken up.

Big Style, Small Space

I saw Benjamin Moore's Peony color in some blog post about color forecasts for this year, and I HAD to use it somewhere. So I decided to decorate my closet. I ordered more efficient shelving from The Container Store and bought a chandelier from Lowe's. I wonder if I'll regret this in five years...

Before, the drab and ineffecient closet

And now. It makes me happy every time I look at it.

New Craft Table

Somehow I discovered these awesome craft cubes at Target, which were being discontinued. So I went to three different Targets to get enough to make a desk. We ordered this countertop to make a long table. This is going to be a great work space. It's long enough for two people to work here at the same time, and I'll be able to keep scrapbook and card stuff spread out while I use the other table for sewing. And the cubes are great for holding paper and supplies.
