We can finally sit back and enjoy our living room. It's finished. I repainted (my favorite word) the walls and it really freshened up the space. It is Valspar Malted Milk. I made the curtains and tied them with some matching ribbon.
I love my ladder. It is displaying some of my favorite decor. An old scale, old books, and some linens. The end table I found at an estate sale for a song and painted it with Annie Sloan Creamy.
The coffee table...ahhh... LOVE. IT.
Found it and two matching end tables on Craigslist. (end tables are for sale) It was exactly what I was looking for. Planky and bulky. I painted it and distressed the top to highlight the grooves.
The rug is the only thing I "splurged" on. Yes, I actually did have to buy a NEW rug. No repurposing or thrift store shopping here. It's from World Market.
Every time I look at this chair I laugh. I laugh because my son Jacob saw it on the side of the road and made me stop and get it. It is heavy metal and the PERFECT color. I left it as we found it.
Another example of using what you have, just tweaking it a bit. I painted the lamp the same Drizzle color as my entertainment center. New look, just not new.
I found the end table at an estate sale and loved it's 6 little drawers.
I have more pictures to come and a striped wall tutorial.
Stay tuned and happy Monday!
