A Little Re-do-Change for the sake of Change



This wall in my "junk" guest room has never been quite right to me. So I decided to play a little and change it up.
Before, seems a bit too busy for me. The mirror is too small compared to the frames, and there is too much going on.


After

I brought in a new old mirror that had a chippy frame and is a bit wider. I Hung that old chippy light fixture I found on Monday and added candles to it. I love the shadow it creates on the wall behind. Removed most of the frames, and moved a few things around and added some of my Sign letters.


I love how this shade inside a shade turned out. It was actually by accident that I did this.
I love how the frame of the inner shade shines through the outer shade.

I love changing things, Do you do that, just change it for the sake of change?

Love the changes! And love the 2-lampshade thing - how cool. And yes, I used to change things for the sake of change. This summer, not so much - waiting on my energy to catch up with me. When it does . . . :)

I like your changes. That 2 lampshade deal is very smart!! Yes, I change things alot. Because I have alot of stuff and can't have all of it out at once. I also like to change the furniture around but have to stop doing that so I don't hurt my back again. ;0

Okay, I liked the first wall, but can certainly see how beautifult the changes are. It went from being very nice to wowsa. If I did this throughout my entire home, I'd be more exhausted than I already am, but changing things out once in a while really helps. I bet you smile every time you see that wall now.
