A HUGE and warm welcome to Sheryl, follower number 100! Sheryl has an interesting blog that you can check out at: http://aintforcitygals.blogspot.com
I've decided to start linking to the blogs of my new followers as I welcome them. I will post something about this and the importance of providing a link as you sign up to follow a blog soon.
This little chest was left over after my husband moved his stuff to the larger one he brought up here last weekend. The guys left it in the hall where it was in the way, so I dragged it around the corner and put it in the hall by the front door. I think it's good to have a chest close to the front door and it fit perfectly.
We had a ton of CDs and not quite so many DVDs in boxes that sat by the old TV. I never liked the arrangement, but the house is small and I had nowhere else. So I had an idea: Stick them in the now empty drawers in this chest. And, as you can see, they fit. So I have two drawers of CDs in the front and DVDs in the back.
Then I put this bowl on top. The red matches other red things I have in our living room. And it also matches the unusual color of our living room walls.
This mirror hangs on top of the chest of drawers. It's a very special mirror, made by an artist friend. It deserves a tribute of its own in one of my Tuesday's Treasures post and I will tell the story of the mirror there soon.
Still getting settled after the invasion. :) Good for you!ReplyDelete
And congrats on #100!ReplyDelete
I love the mirror! It is so colorful and happy... It looks like you have been busy, Inger. I like.ReplyDelete
I sure am glad you see you're settling in with your things! The chest is very pretty... perhaps some ripe red tomatos would look nice in that bowl!ReplyDelete
Good thinking! A really creative use for something that you have had for quite a while. And, I love that mirror. I can't wait to hear the story behind it.ReplyDelete
What a great idea, Inger. And I totally love that mustard yellow! Your mirror is beautiful and to die for. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
What a great idea, Inger, and you can see the names without having to take them out! I see you're sorting and arranging and getting everything to fit!ReplyDelete
Serendipity at it's finest! Excellent! And it looks nice, too.ReplyDelete
Looking good. Isn't it amazing how we find places for our odds and ends. Good idea.ReplyDelete
I used to use a chest of drawers for all my husbands dvd but now we have them on a shelf, he didn't like going digging for them :0)ReplyDelete
The bowl looks fabulous against the wall color. Perfect place and perfect use of the chest! If it were my house, the bowl would be full of all kinds of things - mail, keys, odd gloves, etc.ReplyDelete
Nice to see that you are getting settled with the extra furniture!ReplyDelete
A chest of drawers for disks, great idea...I need one of those. I love your mirror. I can see an owl image reflecting. Cool!
I enjoy your blog, yes I do!
Congratulations on your 100 followers.
(Yes, you may link back to my post.)
Looks like you are enjoying the changes!
Cool Inger, 100 followers; congrats to you!ReplyDelete
I hope you are settling in with all the new things. You know that mirror is so unique and I love it!
I just love repurposing unused furniture! This is a great idea.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you are incorporating the extras from the move very nicely. :)
And congrats on #100! That's awesome!
Thank you all for your comments. I am so happy that you like to comment on my posts. I love to do the same on yours and even feel guilty when I don't have the time. Since it's in the hallway, I think the bowl will hold keys and stuff. It already had an envelope to be mailed in it. I have several things that deep red color that I found matches the wall so well. I will get to work on my mirror post soon. It is truly unique. And the owl that Gerry spotted (you are very observant) is another treasure. I was worried I may run out soon, but treasures seem to be everywhere.ReplyDelete
I love dual purpose items! Great idea!ReplyDelete
Also, thank you for suggesting the book "The Wonderful Adventures of Nils". My daughter & I are really enjoying it!
Love the new use for the Chest, you're right, it will fit perfectly as an entry hall chest and such wonderful storage for your Tapes and disks... I love the mirror and bowl too. Great job.ReplyDelete
The mirror looks GREAT!!ReplyDelete
Sometimes I wish I had a little artistic blood in me :-)
Have a great weekend :-)
What a great idea Inger! I don't like where we store our CDs....too high up and not at all easy to see and reach. Well, now I have an idea. Thanks. Oh and your colours look very south 'west coast'.ReplyDelete
Very nice, Inger.ReplyDelete
Sounds like things are coming together for you all. That is great and the chest looks great. Isn’t it wonderful when you get an idea and it works-like your CD’s fitting in the drawers perfectly? :)ReplyDelete
Love that mirror!!!!!ReplyDelete
It's always refreshing to come up with a new idea and to be able to get things out of sight. Love that idea for the CD's and DVD's. I have that problem with books. I used a whole closet for books plus I have book shelves all over the house. I have throw away days and that helps. Ha.
Hope your Sunday is Sunny.
Love and peace
Thanks for all the latest comments. It warms my heart to hear from all of you and I will now go and see what you all have been up to.ReplyDelete
