Woo hooo! It's done! I finished my living room change up. Wanna see what I've been up to? First, let's start with my inspiration.
Once upon a time a few weeks ago, I was at Joann.com looking at fabric for throw pillows. That's all my living room needed...throw pillows. And then, I saw THIS. And I'm pretty sure I heard angels singing...
...and my kitchen/dining room walls are red (Better Homes and Gardens Red Garnet).
So, seriously, this fabric was perfect. It ties in with both. I ordered 3 yards (thank you 40% off coupon!) and got to work. The first thing I made were some throw pillows for the couch.
I got this frame at Walmart a few years back for about $5, but I'm pretty sure they still sell this exact same frame. I spray painted it with Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze, let it dry, and then with a fine grit sandpaper I roughed up the bumps and edges. So, it went from this:
Then, I decided to go raid the thrift store here (again). I found some incredible finds! Like these birds for less than $2 for both...
They were both white, so I spray painted one the same blue as the frame.
And I found this cloche for another $1.50 and spray painted the base Krylon Bright Idea :
Now, put it all together and what do you get???
