Sitting Room Wrap Up
I've been feeling so inspired lately after making this dramatic change in our front sitting room. Once the wall was painted and the molding was done, the blank slate had my creative juices flowing. I simply love this black wall y'all!
First things first, shopping the house and moving things around are always fun and easy on the wallet. The basics here are the same, but there are a few new additions though I'd like to share with you all.
I knew I needed end tables in this space, so I headed to my local thrift store on a search. Something unique, a warm wood tone with character, was on my radar. This little cutie was just that.
Isn't she adorable? A little antique sewing table, just a little cleaning up was all that she needed. Love that patina!
*A THRIFTING TIP: Sometimes the best little tables have merchandise stacked on top of them, so it's a good idea to pay attention to the base and legs of a table or the lower half of a booth space. It sounds basic but serves as a good reminder when you're on the search! (I walked past this cutie two times before I noticed it, it was buried under a ton of smalls.)
The open space underneath the table is great for stacking baskets and pillows also.
For the wall art, I decided on moving this vintage white frame in here. I purchased it a couple of years ago from a fellow booth owner. It was previously painted in a dark brass color and had a sheep print in it at the time. I gave it a coat of white paint and distressed it some with sand paper. The DIY wood planter was made from leftover wood scraps from our vent hood project. (I knew my wood pile hoarding would pay off one day...) I hope to have video on the blog soon on how I built it.
The antique pediment was a flea market find for $10.
Our loveseat is from Ikea, but I purchased mine used on Craigslist. I scoured the sale pages for weeks until I found this one. Making sure it was clean, then I purchased the new slipcovers from Ikea. This saved us around $250, so it was worth it to wait.
We get asked quite often about our area rugs. Most I find at Homegoods, this rug's name is Princeton, made by Safavieh. I love layering new with the old, it gives a space a character and charm that makes a home feel warm and inviting.
Well, Mama duties call, I hope y'all have a blessed day and thanks so much for stopping by to check out my latest project. This one is coming to a close, but I'm so excited to show you what's up next!
Ted just had to sneak in one more picture to say how much he appreciates you stopping by Mama's blog...
