Reclaimed Treasures in the Living Room

Today I wanted to share with you some of the things in our sunny Living Room.
And share how I re-purpose things into home decor.
This metal scoop is a favorite... it makes a wonderful place for my cactus.
It hangs on an antique bracket and even has a faux bird on its perch.

The plant stand is a rusty garden orb stand.
I love its architecture in the room.
This room gets good light, great for plants... not so great for photos.
I love metal sculpture, this orb is wonderful for my lighted candle.
And of course, more birds.... the ivy is real.... 
and I recently added the mirror behind the fireplace screen.  
I love how it reflects the candle at night.
The walls are a sage green and I love the color.
It is a bit darker in person, it goes with everything.
I added the garden gate behind my mirrored clock.
It made it much more dramatic and filled the wall space more.
 We still love our new floors...
they totally changed the feel of this room.
 The entertainment center is the only piece of furniture my husband has ever picked out.
We were moving into the house and need a place for the 2nd TV.
I would love to paint it.... but I hate to since he bought it for me.
Maybe in a few years.... it has good bones and fits perfectly in the space.
 Comfy and casual is definitely our look.
 With two dogs and two teenage girls...
the leather works out perfectly.
Hope you have enjoyed the little tour.
I have the windows open and have been watching two heron on the lake all afternoon.
