Spring/Transition LR Shelf

I switched out my large mirror for two smaller ones from Homegoods that were $16.99 each! Great deal! Then, I used to lanterns from Homegoods as well @ 12.99 and mixed with other stuff I had in my box of treats---candles, potpourri, my green birdie....

Check out this Knotty Pine makeover!

My best childhood friend just bit the bullet and had her knotty pine and wood built-in bookshelves painted to update her 1980s-built home to the 21st century! I love love love it!!!! I think it adds warmth, personality, and a modern flare! She still has to add the chair rail to the tv wall, but I love the painted fireplace and crisp color choices!!! Yay!

Here is the before of the tv wall:

Here is the after:

Here are the bookshelves on the opposing wall before:
