The new colors I wanted were turquoise, brown and cream. Some of our furniture is black too but I didn’t want it TOO matchy matchy so I just went with it and I love the look.
I was in love with my bathroom curtains so I decided they were the perfect fabric for curtains in my living room. I bought a second set from Target and cut the and broke out the sewing machine. I ended up with 2 darling valances I was actually happy with!
The last thing I did wasn’t until this summer…a year later I know. It’s taken me a year to come up with the perfect idea for the wall behind our tv. I played with several ideas and finally settled on a simple accent wall. This was one of those nights I got a wild idea after the hubby was in bed. I was pretty nervous about him waking up and seeing it…but I was confident he would love it! Many of my ideas sound bizarre when I tell him but he usually ends up impressed in the end!
This was so much easier to tape than it looks. This is what I did.
1. Tape off all around the edges to frame the space.
2. Measure the length and height of the wall
3. Divide by half, mark the wall and tape a long strip there. You will be left with a “cross”
4. Divide both of those sections in half again and tape.
One of the first things I did in this room is my Chevron Frame Board. I have a post on this that you can find here.
Please excuse the nasty blanket pile in the corner!! I hope I’m not the only one that has a blanket corner haha!
