well, I move furniture around!
I had fun on Friday playing around in this room
and making it fresh and new. You may notice I am forcing
Spring, at least in the decorating of this room.
I'd love to get new furniture for this room. But it's not in the budget
right now. Plus, truthfully, this sofa is really really comfortable!
Not a fan of this slipcover. Seems I am constantly fixing it. But
compared to what's under it, this will have to do!
Goodbye early 90's!
I really prefer photos with my low light lamps on. But, I have a
hard time getting the pictures to look like the rooms actually look
on my camera. It is much cozier then these photos feel!
I've had this apple picking ladder for quite a few years now. But, I've
had it upstairs in our landing/computer room. This space needed
something, so down it came and I like it. I hung the black wicker
basket there to hold extra magazines and of course a "wreath" of
sorts with a small round tole painted tray.
My husband made the sofa table and I cut a burlap coffee bag in half and
used the printed side as the table covering.
I like that it adds texture and isn't just plain ol' burlap.
Mallory gave me this bird pillow cover from Pottery Barn for Christmas.
The old battery water crock is used to hold kindling and small pieces
of firewood. It needs to be filled up, we had a fire going all day
Sat. and Sun. It was so warm and toasty!
We have two huge openings to the rest of our Home
from this room. It makes it hard to arrange furniture along with
the huge radiators that heat our Home. So this corner is hard
to make look nice.
But, I brought this chair down from the upstairs landing
and it sure is comfy. Perfect spot for Brad to sit and enjoy
the view of the fireplace. The picture hanging is one of the
originals of our Home when it was first built. It's nice to have.
I can never seem to get a good picture of either of our fireplaces
but, they look much better in person. We use our fireplaces and they
are wood burning. So there is soot and ashes always. Oh well!
The hounds didn't leave the spot right in front
of this fireplace all weekend!
Lastly, I found this cute little bird picture at our local Restore
for 50 cents. I believe it is crewel, but I could be wrong. I hate
seeing someones handiwork at a place like goodwill or a thrift store
just thrown in a box. I know how much work these things take
and if I like them, they come Home with me. I have this
sitting on our mantle....I think it fits!
Thanks for taking the time to see what I've done with this room!
Maybe someday I will get my pictures to look/feel like my room
actually does. Maybe!
Have a warm and cozy day, it's getting colder out there!
