More Changes



I asked Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick for advice on my living room. Here is before:


Sarah suggested more pillows on the couch and maybe some color at the windows. I moved the blue vases up on the jelly cabinet as she suggested.
After:



I bought the pillows at Target, all on sale, the striped ones were $7 each. the curtains were sold as panels, one per package. I bought two, cut them in half and hemmed up the sides. the piano (right side) will be moving to a new home soon. Oldest daughter became a home owner last Friday. All the girls took piano lessons but she was the one that really loved it and stuck with it.
I am happy the piano is leaving my home and going to a good home! I will be moving the rocker to that corner with some lighting.
Now off to finish my BWOF pants, I have been trying all afternoon to get to them!

  2. Nice, but I think I prefer the "before". But a change is always good :) A very attractive room.

  3. Wow! I can't believe what a difference a few subtle (and easy) changes make. I love the hint of blue. The room really 'pops' now.
