The decor in our home is constantly changing. Pillows are a great way to give you a new look without having to spend a lot of money. Making pillow covers is my favorite way to change things up around the house and they are definitely budget friendly.
Our needs have changed over the years concerning how we live in our home, especially the need for storage on the main floor. Our home might have a lot of square feet, but it lacks built in storage space on the main floor. The armoire and the baskets under the sofa table were used to hold necessary storage. When our family room looked like this, it did not feel very cozy.
After finding another armoire on Craigslist, I used them to flank the fireplace. Now the family room has plenty of storage with the left armoire holding all of the TV, dvds, and stereo equipment. The armoire on the right holds throws, extra pillows, books and magazines. Would so love to build some molding on top of the mantel to take advantage of the high ceiling.
The family room feels so much cozier now.
Now, if I could just pick a new paint color...Notice that the wall under the stairs is painted a greige color. It's my sample wall. It has been painted at least 5 or 6 times. LOL!
Hope your week is off to a good start! It's been a busy day for me with doing laundry, cleaning the house and packing for my trip to Los Angeles tomorrow to visit my daughter and family. Can't wait to get there....I'm hoping to share some of our thrifty shopping excursions with you. One of the places we'll be going to a Costco size thrift store in downtown LA and I can't wait!
