My Before and After Living Room!
Back in September I posted that I was having trouble decorating the living/dining area in our new house. I got lots of lovely suggestions and ideas that were a great help! And I've been working on it little by little, but it's still not quite the way I want it. I promised some pictures a while ago though, so here they are!
This was before:
I'm going to slowly fill this wall with frames, as I collect them. Right now they have random bird things in them, but I'm not sure how long that will stay...
(yes, I have my tree up. It's been up for a week actually.... ) :o)
This sign is my favorite part of the house. I found it in our garage when we moved in, and since my husband is a preacher, I just had to put it up there!
Another favorite: These are pages from an old 1800's Reader's Digest type book. The pictures and stories are just fascinating!!
This is a large frame I got on clearance at Target when we first got married. I couldn't find a picture to put in it, so I hot glued silk flowers on it instead.
The lamp I made here.
I heart Christmas trees :o)
And so far the makeover has cost a grand total of............$13! Which was what I spent at a craft fair on the "antiques" sign over the sofa. Everything else was on hand! (Except the dining table, which I'm babysitting for my mom.)
The things I still need to get done are:
Replace the trim around the floorboards
Get curtains (ugh!)
Prettify my chandelier
