Hello friends. I hope you had a great weekend. The weather has been up and down here. It snowed for two days and then it was sunny and warm and then rainy and cool….(?) I know it’s been a while since I last posted. I don’t remember April’s weather being so up and down…
It’s been a little difficult to create content as we’re back to a full lock down here in Ontario and most stores are closed. 🙁 But I was itching to give the built-ins a little change. So here’s a little Black Built-ins Shelf Decor.
I wasn’t sure if you could even see the difference but my family assures me that you can. I went with black because that’s the one color I had at home.
I also removed the logs. As much as I like them, they had been there for a while now and I needed a little change….
I’m not sure if you can tell, but I painted the sides of the shelves white. The blue used to go all the way to the corner. Hubby thinks I should paint it all black. What do you think?
I love this washable rug
This coffee table is from Wayfair and you can find it HERE.
Now Brody really coordinates with the decor…lol
I collected all my busts and I think they look kinda cool there. Hubby mentioned how if it was him decorating, he would only have the one. I might try and see. Sometimes less is more..:)
The very large one is an outdoor planter that I got a couple of months ago before everything closed back up.
The LADY bust is from HERE and the littlest one is from HERE. Though I really thought it was going to be much bigger lol.
I ordered a mirror for the mantel but it’s not back in stock until May 30 🙁 But I know it’ll be worth the wait…
I also ordered a couple of THESE Sherpa pillows from Amazon. They are very affordable and so in right now. I also ordered this little lady from Anthropologie. She’s perfect 🙂
Well that’s it for now. What do you think of the change. Not too stark right?
I’ll keep you posted if I decide to change it up again. In the meantime, I’m working on some Mother’s day ideas hopefully you’ll enjoy.
I also want to remind you that I’m a lot more active over on my INSTAGRAM account in case you want to see what I’m up to…:)
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Wishing you a beautiful day.
I was just admiring the way you put all the busts on one shelf when I got to the part where hubby thought you only needed one. Both would be fine, but I like having the collection together.
Lucas Lee says
Well written blog. You just made a new fan of your art work.
Looks great Lucy. Sorry to hear about more lock downs there. I so wish this was over. I wish people cared more about others too. On a happier note I think the busts are wonderful together as a grouping. If they were all huge in size maybe not but they are perfect. Brody does fit right into the color scheme. Maybe you could do some classes on drawing or painting dog faces? I’m trying to find time to learn more about painting flowers too.
Beautiful! Would you be able to source your rug? Thank you!!
It looks lovely just the way you have it. I too live in Ontario and the lockdowns are so hard.

I like the busts but unequal numbers seem to be recommended so maybe move one. I also can’t determine where the white paint is, but I love the black. Good choice.
I love how you have styled the shelves against black, only I think the one large bust makes more of a statement…it’s so pretty. I love the black, although I don’t think I would have the courage to do it in my own home. And your doggie looks great in there too!

One of the biggest advantages of these smaller satellites is that they do not lose their signals until there is no sunlight in their orbit, and so this means that they will always be visible to the people on Earth, according to OrbitalToday, more herehttps://orbitaltoday.com/tag/scottish-spaceport/.

I recently painted a wall in my living room black and moved my gel fuel (ethanol) fireplace to that wall. I added a pair of open bookshelves with arched tops (relatively inexpensive considering what inflation has done to prices these days) and am now looking for inspiration how to “dress up” those bookshelves. I have an overflow of books to use, no busts, but some vases, candles and candlesticks, items bought and accumulated over more than 40 years of living in apartments and then my own homes. I found the photo of your fireplace and bookcases on Pinterest today and just love the black wall and bookshelves. I will definitely be trying out some arrangements based on your “less is more” theme, as I usually treat a bookshelf like a public library shelf – jammed with books and items from my horse, pink elephant and decorative egg collections. In my “library/office” small room, that’s fine because nobody sees it but me, but I want a little more style for the living room. During the winters I spend a lot of time in the room in the evenings because I have the fireplace going. The black is both elegant and cozy at the same time and I am fully in love with the look.
