Life motto: Don’t tell the thrift store what you want, let the thrift store tell you what you need.
I recently found a pair of dreamy lattice mirrors, for $9.99 each. This set off a little refresh of our landing, just at the top of the main stairs.
I’ve long wanted to add drapes, but the space for curtain hardware was limited– the original balloon shade was hung high and wide. I found a tension room divider on Amazon, which perfectly solved the issue. I stole the curtains from our dining room and mixed in a fresh, striped bench cushion . I bought two cushions and used a little sharpie on the piping where they meet. The two cushions now visually reads as one.
It took me a couple tries to find the right color for the mirrors that started it all, but I ended up giving them a glossy coat of Rust-Oleum Hunter Green. This deeper shade feels more at home than the brighter shade I first tried.
I shopped our house for all the other pillows and goodies. I especially love having the rattan, drum table in this space. It’s the perfect place to lose my coffee cup, during the morning, before school frenzy.
