Operation add coral is a go!

I’m doing it. I’m adding one of my favorite colors to my living room but somehow it has snow balled into a whole living room update and change! Don’t get me wrong, I still like it all but if you know me but at all, you know I LOVE change around here! 

I have made some adorable coral pillows and decided to make some DIY abstract artwork above my sofa and one project keeps rolling into another and I have a feeling the whole look and feel of the room is about to change dramatically! I couldn’t be more excited. 
First, I bought a new modern-esque tv stand from a yard sale. It’s a dresser but being transformed. To give you an idea, here’s the iPhone photo and the inspiration for the piece.
and the inspiration for paint color from Natty by Design
Gorgeous right? I’ve already emailed Natty asking for the paint color so I can get started! Yay!!!
Next up, I just ordered some gorgeous fabric to make some new throw pillows! I’m ditching the ones I have already. They’re cute but I’m over them. 
I saw this photo and knew I needed them! 
and finally, here’s a little peek of the abstract artwork I my son and I painted. I have a few touch ups and the frame to paint then she’s going up on the wall! 
He’s the best helper!
Anyway, I wanted to share what I’ve been up to. I can’t wait to show you as things start coming together!
