Celebrate Your Story #20 and a Peek of Before and After

Have you acclimated to Spring where you live?  In Florida we have had hot weather already.  What is your story this week?  If you are a blogger, come on and link up below.  If you aren’t a blogger, jump down to the comments and let us know what your story is! Changes are happening again at my house.  If you didn’t see it, it will be fun for you to see the difference in my foyer.  Check out the pictures at What’s Been Happening at My House.

My Nautical FoyerThe stone top was fabricated for our console in the foyer, we were fortunate we only needed one small piece and this was a “leftover” from someone’s kitchen.  The framing was done on the picture above, thank goodness for that 80% off we got on framing at JoAnn’s!  The nautical blueprint is from All Posters, and the lanterns are from Pottery Barn.

Sailing Ship model is the perfect thing for this ledge between my living and dining room.This is kind of my pride and joy.  Ever since we moved into our new home and agonized over what to do with this opening between the living and family room, I have had the idea to place this really large sailing ship model here.  This came from Williams Sonoma and I couldn’t be happier!  Let me know what you think!  Now it is time to party!
