My new to me living room

 We have been remodeling here at our house.  We put on a garage, foyer and addition to our living room.  I knew I wanted an accent wall in the living room but wasn't sure what.  I love my damask wall in the dining room and kept thinking about doing that in there. 
 I looked for wall stencils because part of it is cathedral.  I found the stencil I liked and then chose metallic paint to stencil with.   I just love it, it has a beautiful sheen at night with the lights on or candles lit.

That blue electrical box is just a reminder I would love a sconce for that wall :)  I might come up with an invention until then though, we'll see lol

At night I am trying to show the sheen at night it shows up some in the pic.  I will post about the decor later.

Burlap Placemats

I wanted to do something different this year for my Thanksgiving dinner instead of chargers.  So I bought some burlap and cut rectangles and then fringed the edges.  I then took my chandelier stencil and stenciled on each placemat.

Fall table arrangement

I have been absent lately to the blogging world because of the building projects around here.  Fun, but messy and hectic :).  We are fininshing up the addition to our living room.  I will post pics when it is done.  I have done some fall decorating though, not much but some.  Here is my table arrangement.

Everything is from Goodwill except the sunflower that is from HObby Lobby.  I love deals :)
