Living Room Make - Over
We're having a very warm and sunny Winter this year (so far). Almost "Spring" like. I usually don't get in the mood for Spring cleaning and freshening up until at least March. It's usually cloudy, very cold and snowy right now. I've taken advantage of our good fortune. I decided to re-do the living room. Re-paint and have my husband customize some things. He is amazing! He can build anything! And believe me..... I keep him busy. He built the book shelf "built-ins" from scratch. Aren't they awesome! He replaced all the trim around the windows and doors. He layered trim pieces to make them look larger and more expensive. He builds it and I paint it.
He took an old brown frame I had in the basement and made it into a shelf. I painted it a creamy cottage white and it's fabulous! I found the antique floor lamp at the flea market for $12. It has the cutest pink and yellow porcelain roses on the stem. It didn't work or have a shade. My hubby re-wired it and I made a shabby chic shade for it. I may paint it white... but, for now it looks great.
I'm not done yet...... I'm making new pillows for the sofas and revamping an old trunk for a coffee table. I will post more pic's in the next couple of days.
I love it so far.
