Nesting.................

For the short 4 months that Matt and I have been married I must say that I have been a busy bee making our apartment into a haven for us to come home to each day. I have had so much fun going on the "hunt" for new things.


Our newest purchase is two chairs we got at an Estate sale. They are oversized and just what the doctor ordered according to Matt. He needed a football watching chair and that is what we found. We are storing one of the identical chairs at his Moms house until we get a house. Now the chairs need to be recovered as they do not match right now. So this past weekend I set out on the mission to find fabric for these chairs and I was successful in my search.




Here is a picture of the fabric that I will have the chairs redone in. I can't wait to get them back from the "shop". My livingroom is almost complete for this little apartment:) and I am so glad.








This weekend I also did a little work on my mantle. I had a real plant on my mantle that just kept dying despite my efforts to nurse it back to health. I decided to replace the plant with a fake one. I kept looking but could not find the perfect fake plant so I decided to put one together myself. I drug Matt through Garden Ridge on Saturday and then that afternoon I put together the plant pictured on the left. I was quite pleased with the results and the best part is I don't have to water it at all.
Well theres to a weekend of happy decorating......I must say you can't get a better weekend than shopping and decorating:)

When you said Nesting I thought you meant you were pregnant, ahh!!!

The chair looks super comfy though! :) Can't wait to see the final product.
