Just a Few Updates

Hey everyone!  I hope you had a great Easter weekend!  I spent it with friends enjoying the beautiful weather.  We had a delicious brunch, went for a hike to some local falls, got some hard cider to cool off, and then went to dinner and drinks.  It was a day full of laughs and it was SO good to catch up with some friends I haven't seen in a while!  

Last week I did a few updates to my apartment.  My cane chair got a bit damaged during the move, so instead of trying to repair it and make it look perfect, I embraced the damage and distressed it even more.  Here are some pictures of the damage. 

I touched up the paint on the badly damaged areas and then lightly distressed it with a sanding wedge.

I also changed my starburst mirror up a little bit.  During the move, a few of the wood shims broke off so it needed some repair.  I used leftover shims to repair the damage, but decided to also add another layer so that it was more full looking.  I then spray painted the whole thing a gold color.  I don't LOVE the way it turned out, but I'll use it until I come across something I like better.  

Here are a few shots of my living room.  I'm sorry for the terrible pictures.  My apartment is VERY small and the living space is awkward to arrange furniture in and hard to photograph!
