For the past six weeks, Jeff and I have been super busy with a major redecorating project. Normally, redecorating projects fall squarely on my shoulders, but this one required at least three major building components and so I recruited help from my handsome husband. I am doing a big unveil of the new spaces within the next few days, but today, I wanted to give you a sneak peek at my new dining room shelves and offer a really great giveaway.
Two months ago, my formal dining room looked like this.
When we first moved in nearly eight years ago, I was all about the Tuscan and I felt as though this design accomplished that look. But my tastes have changed a bit over the years and I felt it was high time to update and refresh. You’ll notice the potted plant sitting on the ledge there. That new pot was the very first purchase I made when I decided to redecorate the space; it provided inspiration in the way of color.
Today, my dining room looks like this.
Those fabulous floating shelves were one of Jeff’s building tasks. And while I wish I could say that they were simple as could be, those stinkin’ shelves were most definitely some trouble for us. In the end they turned out beautifully, so we won’t focus on what happened in the meantime. I will say, though, that styling them is driving me nutty because I really want to do their beauty and functionality justice. This picture was taken on Sunday morning and already I’ve changed the accents I’ve placed. I’ve no doubt that I’ll continue to change it until I get it just right. One piece that I know is staying put is my Micah print from Red Letter Words. Isn’t it just lovely?
Red Letter Words offered me a print for review purposes and let me tell you that I had trouble narrowing it down to just which one I wanted. Dee Kasberger, the artist and designer behind Red Letter Words, has a virtual storefront filled to the brim with gorgeous art prints that are every bit as beautiful as they are inspirational. Available in a wide variety of colors, Red Letter Words offers prints with scripture, song lyrics and other uplifting sentiments. You can even order a custom print for something totally unique.
I chose the Micah verse because I think it so perfectly and succinctly stated. Beyond the words, though, the print itself is a quality piece. It’s printed on a sturdy, heavyweight canvas. The color is vivid so that the white letters don’t get lost on it. The “texture” gives the piece character and depth. Truly, I love it.
Red Letter Words has graciously offered to give a 12×12 canvas print to one of my readers. You may choose from any of her designs; custom prints are not included in this giveaway. Should you win, I just know that you’re going to have as much trouble as I did choosing which one you want!
To enter: leave a comment telling me which print you’d choose if you won and why. I will choose one lucky winner on Friday, May 24th. Good luck! For the rest of you, Red Letter Words is offering a 20% discount if you use the code spot20.
