Renovation Progress 3/30

For those around last summer, you may remember some renovations we did, namely in the kitchen and bathroom.  There were still a few items that were outstanding from the original plan when Sally came to visit.  We finally scratched one more off the list this weekend.

If you remember, the living room looked like this:

We were supposed to add some scones on either side of the TV.

I had picked those out but after we really strapped down on our finances, I just couldn’t make myself fork out a few hundred dollars for them.  This weekend Scott stumbled upon some wireless sconces in HomeGoods.  I was very hesitant as they looked a bit small and wondered about their quality but you know?  For $40 for both of them AND we didn’t have to worry about wires, I’m really happy.

I think the color is perfect and it’s very nice when it’s night time.  It feels very movie theater-ish!

And while we’re at it, can we please mourn the loss of a pair of these really cool lamps?

I bought a set from HomeGoods to go in my bedroom but it just didn’t work out right and I returned them last night.  They look so cool lit up.  We even had people stopping us through the store asking if there were more.  They did have a teal/aqua set as well so check your local store if you’re interested!

  1. Those sconces look great! Do you happen to remember the name of your wall color? That looks like exactly the color I'm wanting to paint our living room!

  3. Oh, I'll have to think hard about that. Our bedroom is a little darker and it was called Apple Butter. This one was…let me get back to you. Pretty sure my mom or sister might remember.
