It’s done and I’m in LOVE! I’ve been drooling over this shelf since I spotted it over at I am Momma. She just recently added a little FYI tutorial to her site so we could all have an awesome faux beam in our on home! I also finished re-painting my entire house. It went from a neutral tan to a greenish/blue. It’s quite the change but I really wanted something that would lighten up my space and it did just that!
We are in the process of re-wiring the living room so we can swap the couch and the TV (hint… that’s why the TV isn’t centered below the beam). We want to open the space up a little more. I’m still not sure if I will like it better; so here is a good before picture. I’ll post some pics when we get it swapped and you can give me your opinion!
I bought the leaf garland, yellow clock, the @ sign and little green tree shrub from Rod Works just recently. The scale, and lantern are my awesome antique finds. Everything else I’ve had on hand for quite awhile. Cheri mentioned that she paid a lot for her corbels. I purchased both of mine from Hobby Lobby for $20 BUCKS total! When I bought them they were black. I painted them cream and added some glaze. Here is the Hobby Lobby down low! They rotate through the different departments and have a 50% off sale every week. If you wait it out whatever you need from there will most likely go 50% off. It saves A LOT when you are purchasing spendy things.
The little skeleton heads are from the Dollar Store last year. I am in LOVE with my new pillows! My good friend just bought some of these from IKEA and I just couldn’t resist! The covers are only $13 and the pillow inserts are $6.99. Love them!
So what do ya think about the faux beam? I think it’s just what my over sized wall needed! Have a fantastic weekend. We are celebrating my little man’s 2nd birthday tomorrow :)
