It’s All Coming TogetherPosted: July 9, 2012
At the Cape this weekend, I spent some time shopping while Billy was at practice and basically hit the jackpot. When I got home yesterday, I put out all my décor purchases and I have to say, I am now totally loving how my living room is coming together.
At first, I was feeling so discouraged because I couldn’t seem to find anything I liked. I originally thought I wanted to do a coral/brown/silver color scheme (only because I found a pair of coral pillows I liked), but I couldn’t find a single thing I liked that would go with it. It turns out that I was just being way too narrow-minded though because once I changed the color scheme/theme I had in my mind, I found so. many. things. that I loved! I just started picking things that I liked and, wouldn’t you know, a theme just kind of fell into place. It still needs a little work, but it’s definitely getting there!!
My camera was packed so for now I just snapped a couple quick iPhone shots, but here is a sneak peek:
Oh, and see that pink fabric in the corner?
That’s my next DIY project… homemade curtains. I couldn’t find anything that I liked in my price range, so I thought, why not make them? I’ve never made curtains before but 5.5 yards of fabric only cost about $20, so you can bet I’m glad to learn!
And another one of my favorite parts?
Ball jars, marbles, and faux flowers… put them together and the entire decoration cost about $12 at Christmas Tree Shops. Most of the rest of the decorations were found at HomeGoods – which is absolutely my new favorite store – and the majority of them were on clearance.
I didn’t finish up all my errands until quite late last night, and since food supplies are running low, I went with what I had: whole wheat toast with crunchy PB and a smoothie made with frozen strawberries, blueberries, and a little bit of Sprite left over from when my Mom was here.
