Sprucing Things Up

2 Comments

As I shared in my last post, when we came back from the States in June 2011, a handful of friends surprised me with the beginnings of a room makeover.

Amy was the brains behind the effort, and she continued (and continued… and continued…) to help me brainstorm & execute ideas to get our kitchen/den area look more fresh & fun.

My fabulous shopping partners.  Fun fabric isn’t easy to find around here.  But we were determined and found what we needed… tablecloths!!!

Prepping the recycled canvases (recognize that one, Talitha?)

Wall art in process.  They were an ever-changing scene for our morning breakfast time!

More tablecloths.  This time from Texas, and this time for pillows!

Viola!

My attempt at a ruffle-ish flowery thing. It still needs help.

Old accessories got some new paint.

And a very patient Amy accompanied me all over the city as I agonized over my rug decision.
[See the rainbow?  That was God assuring Amy that the rug saga was almost over.]

Our final selection.

This would be a great place for a ‘final product’ picture, wouldn’t it?
I’ll work on that tomorrow.

  1. Lol… you’re such a tease! All that progress and we have to wait for the final reveal. Loved getting to share a decorating palette!

  2. From Dot, to me, to you. I like your wall art, you’ve got something on that original IKEA artist…
