We purchased the shutters at the same flea market. They help to fill up the space a little. The TV can go in either space and the basket or shutters are versatile enough to be used in other areas.
On to another area….
The sofa before we started.
Mixed up the pillows a little with a few from Pottery Barn. The bird prints are reproductions from Scott’s and the frames are from Michaels. The pharmacy lamp is Homegoods and the small table is Pottery Barn also.
We picked up the ottoman at the same flea market as the other things. Once again for a small room, more seating. It really is the “pow” for the room.
This is the chair we had at first. It belonged to the homeowner. We switched it out for another one they had.
It just fit the space better and I did not like the leather with the ottoman.
Here is a view of the room from the kitchen. The door on the left leads to the foyer. The door on the right leads to a small vestibule that we set up as a reading room. I am saving those pictures for another time! Gotta stretch it out right!
A few up close shots….
I know what you’re thinking….their kids are grown so no one is going to pull off the books and jar 🙂
The homeowner had the mirror and we just sprayed it black. Had a bird picture left over…more layering.
OK…so check this out…. A before shot of the kitchen cabinets.
Painted the cabinet black. One on each side of the stove. I LOVE this!!! Where else can I do it???? It really made a big difference. “Screech”…I know that is the sound that your chairs are making as you RUN into your kitchen to see if you can do it 🙂
Cafe curtains out of burlap.
The black leather barstools we ordered from Overstock. They are so comfortable and I think all 3 were 550.00 maybe?
So later this week…..the reading room. I also have that nursery almost completed and an update from the house with the blue doors.
AND….the Christmas House opens the Nov 26th. Sponsored by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles it is at the Mansion on Peachtree. AND…..Denise and I are giving a presentation on Dec. 4th at 12:30 on table setting..using what you have in your home. I am hoping to fill the room with just my friends so I won’t be skeared!!! This is SO not my thing [talking in front of a crowd]. I got talked into it after a few too many glasses of wine. When I woke up the next morning I was hoping it was all a bad dream. Nope. Reality. I am going to pass out alcohol to the crowd so they will be drunk and then I can wow them with cheap crap from Big Lots. In fact I think I will make it so tacky they won’t know whether I am for real or not..hee haw!
Hope you all had a great weekend.
