Pears in the Entry

My entry table and I have been at war since we moved into this apartment.  I’ve never been thrilled with our how it was decorated and to be honest, I’ve switched out about 10 completely different displays because I’m anal retentive it just never looked quite right. We have this gold ornate mirror hanging on the wall above the table, and it’s been difficult finding a few cute things that actually go with it while not overwhelming the small space.

Call the waaaambulance, I know. :)

Anyway, while at Target today I happened to see these little pears on clearance and snatched them up. They reminded me of a post I saw a little while ago on Thrifty Decor Chick and I figured I could do something with them.

After taking a quick chop to them with a kitchen knife (they’re made of foam and little white crumbs were beautifully sprinkled all over the counter and floor, so it wasn’t quite as gratifying as it sounds), I ended up with these…

With a little gold spray paint (addict), some hot glue and a piece of brown scrapbook paper, I think my entry table and I may have found some peace.

…well, until next week. I’ll let you know.

Loving it.

While browsing through the House Tours on Apartment Therapy (this is a busy day at work, can you tell?), I couldn’t help but drool over these photos.  You may or may not know about my unhealthy obsession with all-things-toile, but I can safely say that my love has only grown stronger after seeing these.  How glamorous!

You can view the slideshow (25 glorious pictures) here.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
