Happy White Wednesday! Thought I'd share a few spring updates to our living room, some of which continue my 'thrifty' theme from the previous post.
Here is the entrance to our living room:
I made two spring pillows from $3 Ralph Lauren floral twin sheets I got at the thrift store. Sewing the material wrong side out gave them a more faded look. The couch also has a thrift store chenille spread thrown over it (easier to clean than the slipcover):
A while back I dyed a vintage tablecloth pale pink (thanks to a Shabby Chic DVD episode which taught me how). Here it is on our round side table:
The ladies from the 'At Home With White' event inspired me to paint some of my existing furniture white. This column was originally an uninspired beige:
It's a bit 'too' white and pristine right now, so some sanding may be necessary. But it's a nice change. I showcased it with some pretty roses in my etched jars:
I also painted this side table that was my grandmother Evelyn's (one of this blog's namesakes). Last week's photo of my prized shutter didn't showcase it as deserved, so I spruced up the displays surrounding it to include this table:
Here's a bucket I decoupaged with a French graphic. It's holding last summer's dried hydrangea blossoms:
A glitter star hung next to Sandi's business card:
Some of my French-inspired pillows in the urn:
Lastly, this cute toile pillow I made 2 years ago:
Just a few updates with thrifty finds or items I had on hand.
Hope you all have a joyous Easter!
