Little touches to the den…
So it’s the little things, the special touches that make us love our rooms. These rooms become “our sanctuary”, “our corner”, “the spot” we escape to when we want to surround ourselves in what we feel is beautiful!
Right now, that “place” in my home is our cottage den. This room has been my main focus of decorating since November 2010. It is still what I call “my work in progress”. And as I find new additions, perfect enough to contribute to the beauty I feel when I am in this room, I feel more and more closer to the end of my project.
Today I added a few sweet touches to my den..take a peek at what I did!
So to organize my “cluttered” baskets” I found these darling wooden chalkboard tags at “World Market” ($1. for a set of 2)… I found a floral print that I liked well enough and created a computer label for each basket…then used a craft magnet that had one sticky side that was strong enough to hold the tag in place. Then I roughed them up a bit with sandpaper to add the “distressed” look to these little beauties. I really love the burlap string that came with the tag – just adds a bit of rustic character! Also, ties into the other burlap touches in the room.
I purchased these frames a while back, but their windows, have sat empty on my desk…I’ve thought of what to put in there, family portraits, pet portraits etc. But as I was looking for a good floral print for my basket tags – I came across these darling bird prints –
Even though they have a watermark due to copy write purposes…I still love them for what I wanted to do with them. Since I am not reselling them, I think they are okay to print…I believe the watermark adds character as well. It gives my den a little romantic color & is so lovely sitting here on my desk.
And another cute little touch are these galvanized flowers that will do the trick until spring arrives for me to cut some fresh pretty flowers from my garden. These I found at Ben Franklin for $1.00 a piece….they give my little jars a some wimsy sweetness they didn’t have before!
Glad you stopped by for a peek – I’m very excited to share the progress with you! Hope you all had a great weekend!
