It has been quite some time since my last before and after blog post. We have been working to make some changes in our living room. It all started when I found some great fabric on clearance, $5.00 per yard, while browsing at a fabric store. I bought all they had and made plans to make curtains for our living room. It took me some time to get them done but they are now hanging. The curtain change made a slight paint color change necessary. Then you know how that goes, one thing follows the other.
This is the fabric that started it all.
Below are pictures of our living room before I changed the curtains.
I can see the toys peaking out from the end of the couch.
Once the curtains were complete, we made a slight change in the paint color, it feels a little "softer".
Lyndie and I painted the mirrors and many things were not hung back up on the walls. It will take a while to figure out what should go back up.
New area rug but still have the same very necessary toy box for the grandkids.
This is my favorite reading or sewing space. The bright light makes it work great for my aging eyes.
A temporary "slip cover" helps bring things together. I plan to sew a fitted cover someday soon, I must say that it is not at the top of my "to do" list though.
I like the simple changes that started when I found a beautiful length of fabric on the clearance rack.
