In our second house, I was waaay unmotivated and was like, psssshhhhh why should I decorate again? Then my hubby left me for 12 weeks for Navy OCS and I just wanted to eat cheetos and watch bad reality TV. So in a semi-sappy/sentimental kind of way, this represents a new era. A new, improved, happy and un-husbandless [go with it] life and living room.
Okay, enough of that junk :) Let's get to the pictures, yesssss. Those spider mums were an unexpected gift from a certain boy. Just in time to add a little flair to my new room. Thanks, boo. No really, here we go...
Everybody now....ooooohhhh, aaaaaaahhhhh. Isn't this the happiest living room you ever did see?
[If I was being critical, I would say that I probably need some kind of window treatment in here. But for now, I'm loving to light-brightness of this set up.]
Hey cuties. You adorable shutters and you spunky fabric art, you.
DIY ottoman. With a picture-frame/fabric-turned-tray. XOXO. And you'll notice that these couches are white. So long, black darkness. Hellooooo, cheapo slipcovers from IKEA. And by cheapo, I mean two for the price of one divided by two [on ebay, honey].
Oh happy day. You can't totally see it, but there's a sofa table behind the couch. I'm loving this. It gives the room some depth and it's just three pieces of wood. [a la TDC]
And of course, the details make this room. I made the black and white pillow [and subsequently decided that pillow-making with a sewing machine that's on the fritz is not.for.me] and the green ruffly one I got for approx. $12 at TJ Maxx. Oh yes I did.
One more time...
