When we bought this house 3 years ago it was boring. Clean, great yard, good size....but no character. So for 3 years we have been sprucing her up with paint and flooring and flowers.....
But then there was this beast in the living room. She was comfortable and held alot of people! Like 12! But it was so hard to even think about decorating around her. I mean, she took up the entire room. So we painted the room and left it. I hadn’t even hung curtains. It was a sad little room. As you can see, a dumping ground :)
So we saved and then sold. Sold that sofa for more than we purchased it for 7 years ago! (we did purchase it used….but still :)
And bought this….obviously still in the store here.
Saw these and got a fabulous idea
And this post from Kimba:
Which leads to this post:
So off to the store I went. Having an idea of what I wanted. I am sure the guy in the trim department loved me. Four trips (and a few returns) and we got all the supplies we needed.
FINDING THE MATERIAL was the hardest part. Seriously.
JUST FOR FUN.
When we bought this house (previous owner stuff)
What do you think??? It took less than 6 hours total and painting it was 3 of it! It will still be a dumping ground…But at least it’s a pretty dumping ground!
