I’ve been planning to upgrade and restyle part of my bedroom for a while now, but other projects have kept getting in the way. The wall across from my bed is sort of a dead space, where I currently have a little end table and a vintage mirror. Its sort of become a catchall space, and was never really something that I planned or thought out.
I finally decided to upgrade and make it a more usable space for myself. I mostly wanted it to look nicer, more intentional, and have a little bit of storage. Like any project, I spent a month or two looking and planning. At first I just wanted to update the mirror, but realized it would be better to get a better furniture piece like a console table to fit my needs.

It finally hit 50 degrees in Minnesota, which means it was time to take down the left over Christmas decorations on my front step. It felt so good saying goodbye to the remnants of winter! I realized that I was very overdue for some new front step decor, and was excited to shop for it. On my list were new pots, faux plants to fill them (for now, since its still too cold for live plants!), and a new doormat.
Like always, my shopping involved heading to Target!

I recently felt like it was time to update my fireplace mantle to feel refreshed for spring.

Since I bought almost all of it recently, I wanted to share where to grab it for yourself!
All the pieces are affordable and really classic so that you can continue to use throughout the year. Happy shopping!

One project hat I have been meaning to redo for a while are a pair of bright coral ottomans that I bought a few years back. I got them for a good deal and used them at the end of my bed for a while, but they have been sitting in my guest bedroom for a while, covered in a throw blanket. The bright color isn’t really in style anymore and definitely don’t work in my home anymore.
I wanted to reupholster them, but because the cris-cross legs are also fabric covered, it wasn’t as easy as just covering it with new fabric. One day, I was playing around with how I could cover them and realized it would pretty easy to remove the legs and just replace them!
