Guest Blogging and Refreshing a Room

Hey my friends!
Today I'm guest blogging over at Valarie's, Glimpse of My World,
where I share a yummy recipe.
Go check out her blog, you'll love her ideas and her RV is fabulous :)  I want one!
Thank you so much, Valarie for allowing me to be your guest!

Well, if you've been around awhile, you may know I like to change things around.
I like to call it "refreshing" a room.  Mr. Buckets of Burlap calls it ADD.

In our den, or family room, I've added a few new flea market treasures.
The chippy door and the ladder add a vintage wooden texture 
to the white walls.

Well, you know I love burlap.
These are some coffee bean and potato sacks stacked in a wire basket.

I hung a few grain sacks and special baby blankets on the rustic ladder.

This is the wall behind the slipcovered sofa.

I found an old crate cut in half at the Canton flea market.
To add height, I turned it upside down.
I like the layers it provides.

I moved this long buffet table from the dining room into our den.
I am getting ready for a new cabinet arriving later in the summer :)

You know I like that pop of color from fresh flowers.

And this is another small wall in the den.

I used a garland of driftwood to hang hats from.
These hats were my mom's.  She wore them during her battle with cancer.
I have reminders of my sweet mom all around the house.

Have you been refreshing any rooms lately?
I love visiting all your blogs! Such inspiration :)

Love your mother's hats and the way you display them. What a nice reminder of keeping her with you and sharing stories when someone asks about them. Blessings back to you.

I love that word "refreshing", because that's what changing up can do for us, it "refreshes" our spirit. Your home is so unique. Love that table and your mom's hats above it. Wonderful remembrance. thanks Becky, for linking up with VIF! xoxo Debra

Love the door and the window too! "Refreshing" is a nice term for ADD. I'll have to share that one! How do you get your jute bags to loose their smell - i have some coffee bags, but they are so overpowering...smelly!

I love all the beautiful touches and textures in your home, including the sentimental pieces. I am continuing to work on our living room and have been painting a few pieces of furniture. I'm really looking forward to finishing work/school for the summer in three weeks so I can get some rearranging and diy projects done.
