I find it so interesting that one small change can start a s##t storm.
I bought a chartreuse Persian rug recently at an estate sale and that is the one thing that has created temporary chaos in this house.
After a good cleaning, I unrolled it into my living room and it was the perfect size. It's in fantastic condition, doesn't smell, the color is so bright and fun...everything else looks like s**t.
I hated my room...didn't even want to go in there.
I even had a friend say "just roll it up and put it away till you figure out what to do".
No...I need to figure this out now. So I came up with a plan...Everything needs to go white and let the rug be the star of the room. First stop craigslist. I found two white drexel club chairs in perfect condition for $100.00 each. Sold.
New throw pillows. One in yellow. One in chartreuse. Two in zebra print.
Club chairs each got a pillow from Target's Threshold line that look like a Moroccan wedding blanket.
And the biggest change was painting the living room BM Simply White.
I am in love
Yes, that's a dog bed shoved behind the coffee table.
I found this bowl at an estate sale this weekend for $4.00
The gold and white vase was also found at an estate sale for $8.00
I added this mid century lamp that I already had to the bar.
club chairs $200.00
estate sale pottery $12.00
Target pillows $80.00
Small investment for a large amount of happiness.
