Paint addiction.

I have been on such a make-ugly-things-pretty kick lately.

Found these possible pretties at a thrift store:
[excuse the cruddy cell phone picture...]

Put some paint and TLC into them, and ooooh pretty! 

I am loving these end tables :) I may just have a rotation of furniture going on in my house!

*Edited to add:
The paint color is a Home Depot version of Benjamin Moore, Palladian Blue. I just told them  that's what I wanted, and they worked their magic! :) (It is VERY close to "Tide Pools" by Behr.)

Wedding Shadowbox!

All these random wedding items can either be 1) shoved in a closet, or 2) displayed like so. 
I pick the latter. :)

1- Invitation to our happiest day. 
2- My gorgeous, gorgeous veil. I love it.
3- The sash that was tied around my dress.
4- Well look at that, I don't have a number four... move along folks... nothing to see here. Literally.
5- Josh's boutonniere.
6- The flower that was on the blue sash around my waist.
7- Engagement picture.
8-My very favorite picture from our honeymoon.

What do you think? I am not usually a huge fan of shadow box displays, as I think they can look cluttered. But I also really wanted to find a way to display these items to remember the best day of our lives!
