guess what I won...

my very own story board from Kristy at Hyphen Interiors!!!

Isn't it lovely!!!

When Kristy posted her giveaway I knew I needed to get in on it.  My living room has always felt unfinished to me, and has been driving me nuts.  This would be the PERFECT chance to get help with it!  So, imagine my excitement when I got the email from her saying I had won!!!

Thanks Kristy :D

I asked her to work around some of my existing items as I didn't have an exciting budget to work with.  Actually, almost no budget, ha!

Here are some before photos of my living room that I sent to Kristy.

Ugh... that side of the room has always been a pain.

eek no. 1 - The wall with the clocks was empty for a LONG time.  I saw a big collection of clocks displayed on a wall in a Pottery Barn magazine and thought that would be my solution.  Well, only 3 clocks into it I decided I didn't like it.  And, I've never taken them down.

eek no. 2 - I originally made these drapes for my sewing room, but hung them up in here to see what they would look like.  Love the drapes, love my zebra chairs, HATE the two together.  I'm getting a headache just looking at the picture of it! 

I'm SO excited to make the changes Kristy suggested!  I'll post pictures as I do!

I've already finished a DIY sunburst mirror (my new BFF) for over my fireplace that turned out WAY better than I expected.  Here's a sneak peak.

I'll do a post on my new BFF later ;)


  1. Your mirror looks amazing (what I can tell from the sneak peek, at least)! I'm excited to see the whole thing. And call me crazy, but your "before" room looks pretty dang good to me! I love your style!

  2. I so agree - the before is pretty darn good!! LOVE what I see of the mirror! Can't wait to see more and hear all about it! And, can't wait to see the whole room finished!

  3. Sneak peak?!? Where's the rest?!? It looks AMAZING and I can't stand :-)

  4. GORGEOUS! I have to tell you though that I love your drapes and zebra chairs together - I love mixing prints {especially black & white!} :)) The mirror looks amazing - can't wait to read more about it!

  5. Looking good! You certainly have good things to work with.

  6. Your home is beautiful- you have great style! Kristy came up with great suggestions, and I can't wait to see the finished product! It will be fabulous. :) Happy to find your blog.

  7. Your living room is beautiful! And, I'm so excited to see more of that amazing sunburst mirror :).

  8. What a gorgeous room....looking forward to seeing more. Your blog is great!

  9. Shelley, I just LOVE reading your blog. I get inspired and deeply jealous all at the same time! I can't wait until you start your business! What a phenominal idea! You will do a remarkable job!

  10. I LOVE your B&W curtains! I need some for our playroom and I like that these are kind of fun but not child like! Where did you find them or do you know the fabric?!
    Thanks so much!
