I've Been Shopping

I found a fabulous new treasure the other day, so I am rearranging and playing in the master bedroom.






  This small seating area has always seemed like it needed something.  I've been using a garden stool that I previously had on the porch as an end table.  It's ok, but I kept thinking it could be better.  It worked mainly because it was aqua and I am using aqua pillows, plus I didn't want another wood piece so close to the dresser.



 Since our room is totally neutral I can use a lot of  different colors for pillows and accents.  This was last summer.


 This was winter.


 Now this is my spring look for now.

  So, do you see my new treasure.  Another garden stool, but this one is much more elegant.





 It is brown, gold and silver.




It is so hard to get a good picture with the window.  This piece is much more in keeping with the style of the room and I love it.  Fun find.  $39.99 at Ross.  Gotta' love that.

The painted one that I borrowed from the front porch has been returned.  I love it there and it really is perfect.  



Yes, I need to replace a couple of plants here, but basically it is done.  I love the garden stool on the porch, perfect, and hopefully this looks welcoming to friends and family.

And, I really like the new garden stool I found for the bedroom.  Great changes all around.

  10. I couldn't agree more! It looks like you have them in the right spots now. Your new one looks like it was meant for the indoors and the other one looks like glazed pottery which is perfect for the outdoors among your plants. I like shopping at Ross. They have the best deals! Haven't been there in a while though.

  27. I love a garden stool as an end table or an extra table in a living room area (or bedroom)! That one is really nice and what a great price too. Just had a client get one from Ballard designs and I bet she paid a lot more than Ross price.

You have reminded me that I have one in my master bath, might have to bring it out for show in an upcoming post, thanks Marty!
