A Little At A Time

I'm on a quest to change the colors in my home without breaking the bank.

Paint that I already had completed this project for zero cost. Don't know about you, but I like that!


Here's how our Family Room looked last year. Uhhh, I always hated that ugly sofa slipcover, but it was the only one I could find to cover my huge sofa.

Another shot from last year.

A couple of months ago, I found a new sofa : )




Was over visiting DecorChick a couple of days ago and she mentioned that she found a great jute rug for only $34 at Lowe's. Well, I headed on over to Lowe's to see if  they had them in stock. I was in luck. I brought the last one home to see if it would work. The rug probably should be a little larger, but I'll use it here for now.
I could also use it in the living room or my office. You can't beat the $34 price!


This week I really need to work on choosing a new paint color. Can you guess which color I'm thinking of?
Hope your week is off to a good start!

  2. I think I have a hunch! I cannot wait to see it. Hey, I've got to go to Lowe's today, I certainly hope they still have some of these rugs. I love them! I've been doing a little rearranging to change things ups myself. Everything sure is looking good at your house.

  7. I do like the new sofa much better and know you do too. Love the pattern on that rug. You are right it needs to be bigger.

  10. Love that rug. Is it the right size for your entry? It would be a nice dose of pattern in an entry when you find another rug for your room.
