A Couple of Simple Changes

I have not done anything around here that could be called decorating in quiet some time now. Just a minor change here or there. About a week ago when going thru some pictures, I found this one taken during the holidays of ornaments in the urn.
Before:

Photobucket
and remembered that I had replaced them with faux lemons and limes.
After
The frame on this mirror, use to be gold and I spray painted it white about 3 (?) years ago. I had intentions of collecting several mirrors , painting the frames white and doing a grouping on the wall by the stairs.
For some reason, I just could not get with the program and get it done. The one lone mirror hung by it's lonesome all this time, until a couple days ago.
Before

 I had this mirror with the dark wood frame propped on a antique stool to hide an unsightly electrical outlet and plugs in another room. Decided it was time for a change.........
After
What did I do with the mirror I took down? Look up. :-D I had a picture above the little bookcase at the top of the stairs, and decided it needed to be changed out. Sorry you won't be able to enlarge the last picture. I had to put it in photobucket, then post it from there in order to get it in the right sequence for the post. No picture taking today, as it is gray/dreary - no sunshine today. :(

Just a couple of simple changes for a little different look.
I am linking up with Susan @ "Metamorphosis Monday".

Have a great week!

Thank you so much for your visit and nice comment. I love footed cake stands, but mostly I love dogs, I hope I can have all races some day.
I love your mirror that you turned it white and the lovely urn with all the lemons, such a simple and clean idea and it looks great! Let's keep visiting, it's going to be fun.
Happy Sunday.

Love the urns with the lemons... and limes and the white mirror... AND the cover of the book near the urn *winks* Great changes to the stairwell Glenda! The addition of the darker mirror makes for better visual weight IMHO. Much better. Oh and the column pedestal is way cool too! Vanna

Sometimes the simple changes are the best laid plans! Wish I had a mirror that sweet. Have to be on the look out.

We just tore out the kitchen countertop. So, no sink, disposal, dishwasher or counter for 2 weeks. I'd rather be at your house where there are no big changes going on. I know it will be worth it a few weeks from now...but, we have messed up every room with things from the cabinets!

I really like the change you made with the mirror. The wood framed one stands out so much more in that particular spot.

Hugs,

Hi Glenda, It's those simple changes that seem to have a huge impact. I like that darker mirror in that spot, the scale is better. The white one looks good in its new home too. I've been known to start projects that never quite get finished....I'll change my mind if too much time passes.
Very nice subtle changes you made.

Love the changes Glenda. The lemons and limes in the urn make for a beautiful vignette!

Lemons and limes do bring a touch of spring and summer to a room! I like all your decorating changes.

Sue said...

Seeing your urn reminded me that I have lemons and limes I can set out. Love your new look- simple yet makes a nice statement! And your "new" mirror looks good at the end of the stairs. :-) Sue
