this place makes me think I could pull off a construction sign in my living room!
Though not so much ,this paper skirt. If you have a dress form ,then pull out the paper ...cause this is adorable!
You may wonder why I post so much about CoCo & Company . They say you never forget your first love. I guess you can say this shop was my first love in a style that really excited me.
When I walked into CoCo & Company ...I thought I could live here!
The more I thought about it ...I thought , Why can't I !
From that trip on ...I was determined to live in a place that was filled with light , filled with the things I love ... things I could afford ... yes a house that makes me smile when I walk through the door!
My home has slowly been evolving to truly reflect me.
No more worrying about what other people might think or say ... a home for just me and my family!
After all at the end of the day ... it is our house. (see the wood shop sign in the above photo, they were selling individual letters ... I snaged one. You can see it in my kitchen below)(S is for our last name).
decorating this way is a slow process you cant just drive up to a discount store and just furnish your home in a one stop shop sort of fashion. It takes time to truly find pieces that you love ... sometimes you start with pieces that you just like and switch them out later for things that you love ... sometimes you make them into things that you love (hello paint). Sometimes it is just a waiting game. But the end result is worth it.
If you have been wanting to dive into a new style ...I say take the plunge.
I went past my fears and took the plunge ...and I couldn't be happier.
well I could have been a tad bit happier if I could have fit the candle chandelier and the iron screen in my car. (above photo) At least the S fit . We all need to pack lighter on Vacation LOL :)
Cute old sign!
Just look at that chippy paint !I think I need to trade in my car for a truck LOL :)
I really love this arch top window, but that modern animal print lampshade really brings new life to that vintage lamp ... so cool!
Well thank you CoCo & Company for the eye opener and thank you to all that painstakingly took the time to read today's post.
