Wicker Wonderland

Over the summer we redid a couple of our lower level family room areas.
We exchanged the office area of my husband's
and a sitting area where I have my white wicker.

I debated whether or not to show this right now,'s really not where I want it to be.

White wicker has always been  a compulsion of mine
and a point of contention between my husband and I.
I can't resist it...
He doesn't like having to fall over it in the garage.

I've had these white wicker pieces for several years
and I have had a few other pieces that were...
yes... gathering dust in the garage.

So when we rearranged the basement
I found that my hoarding instinct had been right after all.

A few other pieces were right for the re-do.
My gallon of off white Behr paint
made some magic with a library/dining table
and a round repurposed pedestal table turned coffee table.

I haven't finished some feed sack pillows that I have been trying to put together,
and the wall behind the sofa looks sort of bare.
I want to add an architectural piece, a mirror...something,
just not sure yet.

We've really enjoyed having this area,
we seem to gravitate there for coffee and conversation.

I found this great grain sack table runner from Lidy at Frenchgarden House.

And check out this miniature wheelbarrow that's holding
pumpkins and squash,
and some tiny gardening tools.

So this may be seeing some more change
as the weather gets cooler and I have time for a few more projects.
And I've learned something in all this...
use it or lose it!

I'm linking up with

Hope everyone is having a great week!

love y'all,
