Apartment Living: Decor Updates

Yesterday one of my main concerns was getting bedside table lamps to replace the old ones by our bed and a frame for our guestbook. Along the way I found a few other things I didn't know I wanted until I saw them....

I started the day going to HomeGoods but they didn't have two of any lamp that I really loved and no frames that were big enough (24x36) for our guestbook. From there I ventured on to AC Moore and Target and think I came home with great stuff.

Here's my pile when I got home. I am one of those people who insists on carrying everything in at once. No second trips for this girl right here!

The first thing I picked up was completely unplanned but when I saw it on clearance I was excited for the subtle change it would make in our bathroom.

We had a blue bath mat here which didn't really go with the shower curtain. I swapped it for this $10 white one that came from the HomeGoods clearance section and am loving the small change.

I took a quick look in the pillow section and found a set of two that I thought would look great on my couch.

The gray color works well and it's a larger version of the same design we have on the pillows that came with our couch.

I am so glad that we were able to get rid of the blue pillows that once at here. They were totally destroyed and we desperately needed an upgrade.

When I walked into AC Moore I didn't realize that they were having a liquidation sale. Everything was 25-80% off and it was insane in the store. I was mainly in there for a frame but managed to find this G that has waves on it. I was looking for a G for our living room decor for awhile now but never could find one I liked but this one is perfect! It goes with our decor so well.

This is the old broken lamp on my nightstand. Mine no longer worked so it was just there to match the one of Tim's side. I am not a fan of the gold at all and really wanted a white lamp, so that is just what I got!

I love how simple and clean this is! I replaced Tim's too but I didn't take a picture of his side of the bed.

Last but not least, our guestbook!

Our guestbook from our wedding is 24x36 making it difficult to frame. It's also made of wood so it's difficult to get it in a frame with the backing. I considered getting it custom framed but I didn't want to spend a ton of money. Since frames were 50% off at AC Moore I decided to just grab one and give it a try. The back unfortunately wouldn't fit on correctly but the guestbook itself fit perfectly inside the frame.

I used my hot glue gun to glue all the fasteners to the backing since they wouldn't fit in like normal.

The back stays on nicely but I am nervous to hang it by the back so I ordered some wall fasteners from Amazon which will be coming on Tuesday and we will get it hung on the wall!

That's what new decor-wise around here. Have you picked up any home decor lately?
