Isn't she cute? To be honest most of my friends are shocked that we got a dog. I've never had an inside dog, and I've only ever really liked my families dogs. But I can honestly say I already love Maddie. She's so cute, and she is tiny! Basically my boss saw her at a local adoption location website and knowing that I like Yorkies sent me her picture. I had to go see her. Chase is fantastic with dogs, so he was 100% on board! And now she's here. And currently sleeping in my craft room!
Also, it's been an exciting weekend because before we went to get Maddie my sweet husband cleaned the entire house, and hung my latest decorating project. Here's how it happened.
I got this large round mirror at a yard sale. It had a lot of scratches on it. When I bout it I thought maybe I could paint the leather.
I thought for a $1 I could try it out. When I got it home, I decided to just check what was under the leather.
I was so excited to see the pieces of wood underneath. I knew it wouldn't be perfect, but I thought it would look distressed and perfect for my style. So I went for it!
I really wanted it to be dark, so I didn't wipe any of the stain off, I just let it soak it all up! I also went back and made some sections even darker. It gave it a really nice effect.
And here is hanging up on my mantle. Chase kindly took down the TV:
And here it is now!
Now I know some of you are probably wondering about why we would take down our tv. Well, to be honest we never watch it. When we are watching TV it is always upstairs! So the old TV is now my computer/monitor (more on that another day). Oh, and I have to show you this picture of Maddie. She fits in well with our living room.
And last thing... as you probably red yesterday, I have some exciting news to share with you on the 30th! Here's another clue!
Thanks for stopping by!
