Here’s how it looked in progress…
I decided to go with a gallery wall over my sofa. I ditched the wal-mart floor lamp (blah!) and added two thrift store lamps that I sprayed a pretty yellow. I was excited to get the lamps for $7 each (including the shades!) Sc-ore!
I then moved my framed photo of the Mesa Arizona Temple into my hallway and made some Ballard Designs/House of Smith’s inspired shelves for the corner wall.
Then… I ended up here…
I tossed around the idea of a slip cover or reupholstery but deep down…. I just wanted a new couch! I couldn’t see past the eye sore.. 🙁
(Ps I still gotta paint that right side end table! Found it on the side of the road so it needs a little paint job!)
I started shopping around for a new sofa but didn’t get too excited bc the hubby wasn’t completely on board… He knew how badly I wanted a new one. I finally found one I really liked and showed the hubby. The response I got was… “ya babe, that’s nice.” Then he went to school. I texted him and said “Couch?” and I got a text back a few minutes later that said “Sure baby!” So I ran out and bought it!!! HOORAYYYYY!!!!!!!! A couple days later, she arrived!
I sold my old couch on Craigslist about 2 hours before my new one arrived!
I unwrapped her and screwed on the legs! One side of the pillows that were included matched the fabric of the sofa but the other side was not really my style. I plan on recovering the pillows but for now, the polka dotty fabric faces the back!
I wanna get this rug but I’m still working on the “okay” from my sweet hubs! Maybe for Christmas! 😉
and I really want these pillows! haha!
Oh man… I’m gonna be honest… I am really loving how it is coming together.
Paint end table
Make more pillows!
And just for fun….
A few weeks ago…
