Wouldn't it be great if you could design a room & just go out and purchase all the beautiful things you needed? I would love that!
Ok, so back to reality.
I've been working on changing the colors in our home and lightening things up for Spring. We started in the Dining Room a few months ago & I finally began lightening things up in the Family Room. My main goal is to get rid of all or most of the red in my home.
Here's the before of my coffee table:
This box holds all of the remotes.
Here's the after:
I painted the box with Apple Barrel Mossy Green Gloss paint. This color definitely says Spring! The lantern is painted with Apple Barrel's Pewter Grey with a dash of Military Blue mixed in.
Do you have something in your house that you get frustrated with every time you look at it? Our 20 year old sofa was it for me. We bought it before kids. Underneath the lovely (said with sarcasm) slip cover, is a champagne damask sofa. It was a great sofa ~ It was the only place I could sleep comfortably when I was pregnant with both my girls. Ah, but I digress... it's heyday had come and gone...like 10 years ago! When we moved here, I found this ugly slipcover at Target. I don't really like that many florals, but it was the only one that would fit this huge sofa.
What I hated most about this cover was that it looked like this after my girls and Mr. F sat on it. It was a pain to constantly fix it.
Well, we finally got a new sofa!
Now, I just need to make some throw pillow covers and choose a new paint color for the room.
Hope you had a fantastic weekend!
