AFTER -The cabinet that is on the far wall was in her bedroom. It was a great piece to add to the living room, because we used it in creating a focal point. We added a lamp on the top, some frames and a natural element, it is now a place your eye can rest.
See how we created a "Unit" with the couch, the picture on the wall and the accessories on the table behind the couch. If you saw the video clip --- the table behind the couch is an old sewing cabinet that we found in the basement storage!
We got the lamp and the plants from the family room.
Notice how the rug anchors the furniture, it adds texture and helps pull the room together. We got it from the dining room.
See what a difference the gold pillows make. They were in the closet, left over from an older comforter set.
The little table we have between the two chairs is a country style with hunter green paint that we found in the basement. It would not work the way it was, so we just covered it with a gold tablecloth that we found in the kitchen.
Look how great it works with the bedroom pillows.
Isn't this fun . . . ! It truly is like a treasure hunt.
Start with just one room and see what elements you
can pull from other parts of your house.
Who would have guessed that we could find a tablecloth and pillows that add so much to the living room.
Go ahead and give it a try!
---I would love to hear about it---
