Hey you guys! A few weeks ago I introduced my ideas for a little “spruce up” of our living room here. And this afternoon I wanted to share where we are in the process.
I made a little announcement on IG last Sunday that I had FINALLY gotten around to making my pillow covers! I’ve only had the fabric laying around since christmas. I’m thinking that I need to do a FB Live video on my “lazy girl pillow covers” . When I say lazy it is super L-A-Z-Y but it works and they turn out fabulous. EVERY TIME. I also ordered my coral greek key inspired pillow covers and they arrived yesterday. Got to love that 2 day shipping!
This coffee table was a sweet little DIY project involving an Ikea table and some gold spray paint. I really love the idea but I can’t take all the credit I originally stole the idea from The Hunted Interior. her ideas are AMAZING!
I’m loving the over all neutral look with the pops of color. The room totally says “spring” to me.
Don’t you love this darling toy box?? I do. It may be my favorite thing in the whole room. It was a disgusting pleather ottoman/coffee table thing in it’s former life. *Alert* I’m about to get snooty up in here* I do not do pleather. I will not do pleather. I do not care for fake leather furniture, over stuffed pleather anything…..sorry, NOT SORRY. End of story.
However, when you find a piece of ugly furniture on The Craigslist and you know that it can be made into something cute with some fabric and a staple gun, you can bet I’m going to buy that disgusting piece of furniture and make it pretty. That’s just how I get down. So of course I went with the buffalo check and added some furniture feet I had from a previous project and VOILA! Toy storage for my babies, and can I just say that it is awesome to have hide-able toy storage in the living room?
I also added two grey lamps behind the couch. I’m thinking that I want to put an iridescent glaze on them to give them a little sparkle but I need to find just the right kind of glaze and that may take me a while.
I need to create my little Amazon list so that you guys can have my sources for a lot of the accessories that I’ve chosen. I’ll try to add that soon, I also think I’m going to do a little post over the weekend about the toy box makeover or at least share a before picture. Thanks for stopping by you guys! It’s actually been really fun showing off the progress of this room instead of waiting until it is all put together to share. Little by little I’m getting over that protectionist anxiety. Do you ever worry about how things look “in-process” or am I the only one?
