First Steps in Some Long Term Redo Plans


A few weeks ago I mentioned
the brown couch was being recovered.
I'm SO happy to see it gone.


What a difference a lighter upholstery makes!
I've also traded the rugs from this area
and the adjoining entry.
This is the first step in a redo of my living room.


I also plan to have slipcovers in an off white
made for the two yellow love seats in this room.
I would have had them made at the same time as the
reupholstery of the other love seat,
but the fabric store didn't have enough fabric.
So, I'm on the look out for that.


I recently brought home this painted buffet
for the dining room.
Have you ever noticed when you
make one change,
several more ensue?
The buffet that was here originally...


Got moved to the entrance,
so the buffet that was there...


...could be moved to the living room to
accommodate my new flat screen TV.
Yes, I've finally updated and come
into the new age of television.


Finally, the tall book case that did
house my old TV was moved to
a spot in the kitchen,
which has cried out for a tall piece
since I've lived here.
Perfect fit!

I'm now searching for just
the right fabrics for  new window treatments
and slip covers.

However, all that will have to wait
a bit longer.
Wonderful items started arriving
yesterday for our upcoming
Holiday Sale.
This week will be spent
decluttering and setting
up displays!

Your changes are wonderful and I love all the details...the rug, the wicker coffee table and I noticed you store wine in a wicker basket in the corner, I love that idea! I know how things snowball for sure! I try to save and save until I can do most of a room. And I collect accessories as I find them. Anyway-I love what you did and can't wait to see the love seats when you finish them!

XO,
Jane

It's so fun...and economical...to be able to move a few things around to get a new look, isn't it? I really like the changes you have made. So cozy!!
