Mosaic Glass Candle Sconces & Gold Wall Art Over The Headboard

I wanted to do something different for my bedroom so I went for a dirty mint green color on the walls. I already had the furniture when I moved so I wanted to compliment it so i went for thee gold undertones.

These taper candle sconces have since been discontinued, but I really stepped into a goldmine when I found them. I believe they only cost $19.95. The fruit wall art was from what you will all learn to be one of my favorite places to shop, Bed Bath and Beyond. These amber mosaic glass sconces were just perfect next to the art. They are heavy too. It's a good thing that it is all secured to the wall, because it might fall off and hit me in the head while I sleep!

What do you think, pretty huh?

Candle Sconces & Wall Art Create Love Over The Mantle

I like to call this look "Believe In Love" because red roses remind me of being in love and I'm in love with having the constant reminder!

The "BELIEVE"figurine, red rose wall art, and red pillar candles came from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. The rose art only cost me $20 and the "BELIEVE" figurine, I think, cost less than $10. The scrollwork candle sconces come in pairs, candles not included, and only cost $19.95. The red candles came in a pack of 3 for maybe $7. The only alteration needed was adding the hanging hardware on the back of the art.

I've always wanted a mantle, and when I finally got one, I didn't know what to do with it. It took some searching for the right wall art. Actually, a good friend of mine was shopping with me and she found it. I knew right away that it belonged above the mantle. It was perfect!

Let me know what you think!

Welcome to the Blog!

I just want to say how excited about this new blog I am! I bought my house almost 2 years ago and I have been working really hard to turn it a dwelling that is completely me. I have painted almost every internal wall and ceiling, changes light fixtures, and decorated the place to my on taste. I didn't actually have a budget, but I like what I like (I get my somewhat expensive taste from my mother) and I save a ton of cash by doing a lot of the work myself. Now that I've been here a while I'm making more cost cautious choices with my decor and still doing most of the work. I hope this blog to be my personal decorating journal as well as a place for all who enjoy this kind of thing to share their ideas, triumphs, and lessons learned.

I welcome you all!
