A Few Condo Updates…

Now that our master bedroom is done, it’s time to show you guys what we’ve been up to in other parts of the condo…This elegant bar cart features fancy glassware and fresh pink flowers.

We got a new bar cart for Christmas and we are both in love with it. Our old one was a $20 flea market find, and it had a good run but it was definitely time for an upgrade. That thing was super wobbly..every time you made a drink the entire cart would jiggle back and forth. Not a great quality for a piece of furniture holding lots of glass and breakables. #ruhrohThis decorated bar cart adds character to the living room space.

This new one sits in the family room by the window, but I rolled it over to a wall so you can get a better look at it. I love how big it is, because now it can hold just about all of our drinking essentials. These cocktail coasters are fun and one of a kind. These glass decanters on the bar cart add elegance.

It also holds all of our wine glasses, which freed up lots of kitchen cabinet space. This personalized gin bottle is a fun decor element on the bar cart. The wood bar cart pairs well with the floors. These fresh flowers add a pretty element to the bar cart.

The cart fits perfectly in our window nook, but if we need to move it for a party (or for our Christmas tree), we just roll it on over somewhere else. Very convenient.

The natural light shines beautifully onto the bar cart. This living room area is bright and modern.

Next to the bar cart is our fireplace area, which I’ve been working to spruce up. I got this mirror from Ikea (another Christmas gift….Santa was good to me this year!), and it’s wonderful to have right by the front door. Gotta check yourself out before leaving the house, right?!This fireplace mantel is decorated with modern accessories.

In the mirror reflection is a little sneak peek of the other side of the room. I can’t wait to show you guys our new built-ins in the family room. Still working on a few more updates for the space before I share it all!This dinner bell in the kitchen area is a fun, farmhouse decor element.

One more fun addition…we hung a dinner bell in the kitchen. Isn’t it adorable? I don’t know what made me want a dinner bell, but once I got the idea in my head I just couldn’t shake it!

This silver kitchen dinner bell is one of a kind.

The silver matches with our new kitchen island pendants, and I just love how shiny and pretty it is. This condo kitchen is modern and sophisticated. Ringing this kitchen dinner bell is fun.

Finn (the chef in our household) loves to ring it whenever dinner is ready. Even after having it for about a month, I still think it’s hilarious every time he rings it. I’m not so sure our neighbors agree…

So there you have it…a few new items around here. It’s crazy how adding just a couple of things to your home can make it feel so different. Baby steps, people!casey_sig
