Here is my new living room... where Josh and I sit every morning and have coffee and tea. Look at my new oversized chair from Craigslist for only $80.00, pillow from Fred Meyer for $7.99, and the 4 new curtain panels from Ross for only $11.99 each. They are also microfiber with the metal rings (the style I totally wanted but wasn't going to spend more then $20.00 a panel).
My coffee table was refinished recently. It used to be black but when we bought the red sofa the black didn't look good anymore so we used some paint left over in our garage to refinish. These pillows were my inspriration from the room. They were very spendy but I had to have them. They were $19.99 each at Fred Meyer... but they were a must have... And the wicker basket on the coffee table was from Ross for $9.99 on clearance. I got the sofa on clearance for $299.00 at Mor Furniture.
I didn't get all this at once but I am very good at remember prices...that is how I get my thrills is a good bargain... so with all this I spent well under $600.00 (minus the coffee table that was bought brand new and I spent way too much money on that over 4 years ago... so it doesn't count!) This space with the windows is such an awkward and small space and we used it to store our extra kitchen chairs and our vacuum.... totally looks better now!
My husband is out of town... I wonder if he will like it... Is it too girlish? I tried to think of him when decorating... good thing he really doesn't care... but I still want him to like it! :D He pretty much gives me run of the house as far as decorating... because if he had it his way all his stuff would come from Goodwill and all in the same trip so nothing would match... he just doesn't care! And don't get me wrong... I love Goodwill (the pictures on the wall next to the curtains were from Goodwill) but it isn't the place to go to redecorate your house!!!
