Etsy Love: Anewall Decor

Etsy Love | Kiki's List I recently stumbled upon Anewall Decor on Etsy, and I immediately knew I had to share.  They have inexpensive (but perfect) wall murals.  A great way to spruce up your home.  How amazing is this cactus mural?   I love it in a nursery or playroom!

Still don’t think you can commit to an entire wall?  Rest easy.  They have tons of art prints to choose from.  This print comes in several colors.Etsy Love | Kiki's List

There is also a great selection of photo prints to choose from.  I’m loving this tropical print.

Earlier this year I had the privilege of working with the sweetest 12 year old girl on her new bedroom.      She wanted a room that reflected her personality.  We went with “California Cool.”  This is what it looked like before.

She couldn’t be happier with her new room!



The Office.

We are about 80% done with the office.  We’ve come a long, long way.  Here is what the wall where the bookshelves currently reside looked like a few months ago.

Screen Shot 2014-06-04 at 2.44.29 PMThe office was one of the first rooms that we painted when we moved in 12 years ago.  The sofa (which I love) is about as old as I am.  It’s a hand-me-down from my parents.  As you can see, the old door really cut into the room-  not making it very functional.  So….

We took the door off the hinges and moved the sofa to the basement.

Then we started building the bookshelves.

The electrician wired for recessed lighting as well as four sconces over the bookcases.

I painted these sconces (similar here) with Krylon Brass spray paint

and these cabinet pulls with the same paint.

We replaced the swing door with this custom-made barn door that slides back and forth which provides us full access to the bookshelves.

We are installing 3 of these consoles for the base of the desk along the wall opposite from the bookcase.

I’ve also painted the hardware Krylon Gold.

This Tanzania wallpaper by Thibaut went up on the ceiling.

And I’ve been busy styling away.
