Monday at My Home

Happy Monday Luvs! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I have a couple of little updates to show you for "Monday at My Home". I always love hearing what you all think of my little projects and updates so thanks for humoring me!
Remember this amoire we got for Evelette? Well I used some of the wallpaper left over from our bathroom makeover to give it a little bit of an update.


I also gave our front porch some color by spray painting the pots yellow. I am not really sure if I am loving the way they turned out but I have a feeling they will grow on me. : )

I have a fun giveaway planned for tomorrow so make sure to come check it out!

We sprayed the pole holding up our back patio that same color and I felt the same way at first. Now, after a few months, I love it.

Kristin said...

I am in love with your bright yellow planters. What a fab way to jazz up an entry!

That amoire is wonderful. I wanted to do something like that to my colset doors, but never had the time and I can't decide the pattern.

OMG, that is the sweetest armoire! It's gorgeous! It doesn't even look like wallpaper on there, looks so natural. And I LOVE the yellow planters. Great Monday post!

Perfect! I think you will grow to love the yellow pots too. You know what would be cute on your front door? Your street number stenciled on in the french style. you know like No. 647. I love that look!

I love the armoire! It looks amazing! And your front porch is great. Love the pops of yellow!

I LOVE the yellow, I am inspired to add some color to our front porch now. Looks great!!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Amazing! I love the extra touch that the wallpaper gives. So pretty!! And I love the yellow :)

Sharstin said...

i think the yellow is great--and the armoire looks so pretty:)

Miss K said...

Great idea with the wallpaper! The armoire looks fab!

I LOVE the yellow pots. Yellow is my fave color and looks great with the colors of your house. I think red would have been too much and expected. Blue/bright green would have worked, but I think I like yellow best. It's a great pop of unexpected color.

i love the idea of spray painting these pots by the front door. it really brighten things up! we live in a neighborhood where everyone has fun doors but we are renting and the door is mostly glass. even if we were given permission to paint it, the effect wouldnt be the same. im going to start looking at goodwills today to find something to paint a fun color instead and place it on the front porch. you have inspired me leah, thanks!!!!
