The Little Things

As I’m trying to make the rental feel like home, I’ve been trying to fill up the empty spaces and make some things feel intentional. I’m trying to get the hang of this styling things that seem to come so easily to others.

Lately I’ve been finding joy in the little things. The little things being accessories.

Accessories serve the same purpose as the earrings, bracelets and scarves do for an outfit. It pulls everything together.

In an effort to use what I have, I repurposed this .99 cent tea light holder into a…painted tea light holder. I don’t plan to put a candle in it, but I that it’s something small that breaks up the black in the two frames.

I like the white and the peekaboo gold.

I poured white paint in and swirled it around and then added gold paint and swirled it around. Voila!

To me, the small things really do matter.

Do the small things make you as happy as they make me?

  1. The small things indeed do matter! I love accessories around the home because they allow you to switch up from season to season. We are in the process of moving to our forever home and I plan on painting the walls very neutral so I can always switch out and play with the accessories!
