Hello to you! Hope your Summer is going well so far. This week, I decide to give my living room a new summery look, complete with bright whites, a few vintage elements and fresh flowers.
I started with some rearranging…swapping the porch furniture with the living room furniture. The living room is directly in front of you when you walk in the front door and I wanted it to feel nice and welcoming.
I washed all my slipcovers, which was quite the chore due to my crappy washing machine, then after finally getting the furniture all put back together, I added a little vintage stool as a side table and a few old books. And, of course, no makeover is complete without the addition of flowers. My lovely neighbor gave my these pretty pink peonies with instructions to take as many as I want. How great is that? I managed to contain my glee and greediness and only took a few.
I kept thinking about the other possible decorating options for this room and wondered how a bench would look in front of the couch. So, I got one out and added a few flowers and some old canning jars to help liven it up a bit.
I liked it, but I think I’d prefer a rustic side table instead…maybe something with metal. Another idea that came to mind was logs. We have these huge peeled logs in the garage and I’m wondering if perhaps the Mister would be willing to cut the end off of one for a little table. Oh, I think that would look good! Those things cost a small fortune though, so I don’t know if he’ll go for that idea.
There ya go sweet peeps…my summerfied living room. Well, all this talk has me hungry…I think I hear some strawberries calling my name. Hope you’re having a wonderfully sunny week.
