I'll spend the next few posts giving you some of the plan and a lot of "before" pictures. I wanted to wait in posting this stuff, because it's kind of premature. I know I won't have any good "afters" right away...but I'm hoping that putting these "befores" out for all of you will get me motivated to actually complete some of these projects sooner than later!
These are my current curtains that are kind of serving as our color palate and inspiration: (There will be more layers of window treatments eventually.)
Here's my couch before: It's plain, blue. The simple plan: add colorful throw pillows.
Finding pictures of pillows I love is easy. Finding pictures of pillows that I can actually see living with on my very own couch is a little harder. Here's what I'm thinking, though:
Here's my rug. It's fine, it was on sale, but it's not quite the look I want for the living room. (Seemingly) Simple plan: Get a new rug.
This is our inspiration rug, and here's one I found at HomeGoods, but it was a little too small. The style is more traditional than I would have thought would work in the room, but I'm excited to go in this direction. This is where Valerie is really helping me see new possibilities!
I'm excited to see what we really end up finding, purchasing, and installing!
She's also talking me into painting, which I am more open to after seeing the potential new rug...but one step at a time, one step at a time!
