Slowly but surely, we have been updating our master bedroom. (still love our updated cedar chest!) We have lived here for 2.5 years and still haven’t finished it – isn’t that sad? I wanted it to be the first room that was totally complete but like most of you, we worked on the areas everyone sees first. I’m hoping that by the end of February, it will be really finished.

The moldings on the doorway and the baseboards still have to be painted but we should be able to finish those this weekend.

I always think of Lauren at Three Pink Dots when I see something like this because she is a pro at the equine trend. I think I needed more nudging though so when Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick featured this gem from Target last week? I was on it!

Isn’t he pretty? For now, he has a special place on this little side table in the main living room. I can already tell he’ll be making his rounds in the house! Similar styles are usually priced in the hundreds of dollars (like this one at Neiman Marcus) but good ol’ Target had it at $24.99! Talk to me! Conner is still getting used to him…I think it helped a little when I turned the head to the side so the horse wasn’t staring straight at him…
