One Day Makeovers-Southern Accents

I was on Southern Accents yesterday when I saw the title "Updates You Can Do In A Day". Day makeovers? Sign me up! Here are a few:

*Forget The Frames- All these pictures except for one are attached directly to the wall. This would only work in certain spots with certain types of art, but I like it.
*Mix It Up- Use a variety of seating at the dining table. I LOVE this picture. The 2 benches are interesting. I am used to seeing one bench but this threw me for a loop but I think it works. (At least for the picture not sure about in real life)
*Strength In Numbers- This tip was about making a center piece that is not traditional- several different vessels. While I like the idea, the center piece is not the first thing I love about this room. The whole room has been a favorite room of mine since I first laid eyes on it.
*Dishy Display- Put items on display usually found in other rooms. Dishes in the bathroom? I like to use objects in unexpected places.
For their complete list of makeover ideas or for more details on the pictures seen here, visit Southern Accents.

I love dishes on the walls, I kind of want to put them up on every one of our walls. Jamie thinks that will make us "crazy plate house" though. I guess maybe just in a few rooms. Thanks so much for the great ideas!

Interesting about the plates! I do love the benches though. we just bought dining room chairs, but when we switch things out, I would love to have something like those benches!
