Ants in my Pants

I'm getting antsy...when is this baby coming? To keep busy, I continue to nest and find projects to work on...Pat must worry when he leaves for the day, I've always got something up my sleeve.

The upstairs hallway/landing in our house needed some love...a lot of areas do, but I am trying to remember that decorating a house is a work in progress. However,  I've had the hankering to tackle certain areas. I wanted to bring a little color and character to this spot - my goal was to spend under $100, which meant the hit or miss Home Goods run, or Ikea to the rescue. I ended up at Ikea and was excited to purchase the expedit shelf {only $40!!} two baskets for the bottom cubby holes and a faux orchid. I accessorized with items and pieces I had stashed away, waiting for a place to call home.

EXPEDIT Shelving unit IKEA Can be hung on the wall or placed on the floor.

When you walk up my stairs, this is the view...Lady adds a nice little touch :)
I have plans to do a gallery wall of pictures up the right side {maybe that will be my next project}

At the top of the stairs I hung these prints by Michelle Armas and have plans to cover the bench in a Quadrille print (below)

The other side of the hallway was empty, so here is my before and after:
