Living room update

Transformation Thursday

























Photobucket


Its Tuesday again, lol. Everyone join me at Kristin's










 








Hi all, Bonnie here, and look what ive been up to..........

This is where we started from.................


Im almost certain that i'll be painting this table white......







Im oh so tired!  Ive been working on too many projects at once. Hubby and i just finished a headboard which i hope to get started upholstering soon. Im doing it in a white shabby chic matelasse. .......but more on that later, this is supposed to be an update on the living room. I finished painting about a month ago, i still have a few projects in here, like painting the new coffee table and some new slipcovers, those are in the works......We put the new drapes up today, and im just beside myself with loving how they look, i got such a bargain on the fabric that was used to make them, $15, Penny hemmed them up really nice.........also got a great bargain on the curtain rod aswell. Hope all of my fellow bloggers enjoy the before and afters.............toodles

All this material for the drapes was purchased off Craigslist for a mere $15. Enuff for two drape panels and some left to make pillows. Penny fixed someone elses attempt at crudely making drapes, lol.

It looks so romantic Bonnie! (There you are pretty lady!) Love it! I do think you should paint the coffee table white also. And I love your white nude under the buffet. I have a very similar concrete one. Big improvement over the old room IMHO. Vanna

Lovely room! I love the chair most of all! I'd paint the coffee table too, if not all white maybe just the legs and bottom and stain the top!

Great job on the redo. If you are taking votes, then I vote yes on painting the table white. I just think that would look so perfect with your other changes.
