Changing Things Up

The other day I switched up the little alcove that's in the corner of our living room.
Sorry, I forgot to take a "before" photo to show you what I changed [maybe next time!]. 

I didn't have books on the shelves before because they aren't very deep, so this time I thought I'd try putting some books on it for a different look. Even though they over-hang slightly I don't mind.

I also got to use these bookends for the first time. They've been sitting in a box for quite some time and were initially for my husband's office. However, since they weren't being used I decided to put them to good use! Then I added a few little accessories and some photos and now it has a whole new look. 

 So easy to do and maybe took me 15 minutes max. 
Sometimes I forget that if I'm wanting a change around our house all I need to do is swap things in & out and rearrange. Much cheaper than going out and buying something! 

Can't believe the weekend is here again already. 
After work today I'm looking forward to relaxing!
Happy Friday!

I'm linking up today to Simple Home Life.


  1. Nicely done. I"m looking at all my bookshelves with a calculating eye, now. De-cluttering and restyling coming soon, I think!

  2. Looks so cute! I found your blog through the blog hop. Glad I did.


Thanks so much for stopping by & taking the time to comment! I love hearing from you!
