First of all, pick a flower that would be in season.

ORC-Master Bedroom Closet Makeover Week 3

Wow, seems like there is so much to do, but I did make a little progress this last week on my Master Bedroom Closet Makeover for the
  Since I started a week late, I had to do double duty to catch up. I can't fall too far behind if I want to finish on time.  You can see where I started and my plan for the closet makeover here.  


Since this is a cosmetic makeover not a gut job, I am trying to make what we have as functional as possible, and I want to add a little glam at the same time too.  I'm working with builder basic - no fancy custom organizers.

Kilm Pillows

I love Kilm rugs and pillows, they are so pretty and have so many fabulous colors and designs in them.  While out doing a little thrifty shopping, I found some stunning Kilm pillows that I just couldn't resist.  



Not only are the designs gorgeous, but so are the colors.  You know I am on a orange/tangerine kick, so how perfect are these.

There were actualy three of them, and they all have fabulous designs.

 I chose to use two on the sofa for a less cluttered look and place the third one - -

on the wicker chair by the window.  This brought the pattern all the way around the room.

I wanted to lighten up the coffee table, so I shopped the house to find a couple of candles and a pretty floral bouquet to compliment the colors in the pillows.  


I havn't found anything at goodwill in a long time, seems like they are shipping all the good stuff out.  I went in looking for a lamp, but couldn't believe such pretty pillows and for $2.99 each, of course I couldn't resist.   I had an orange pillow in my stash, how perfect is that and of course I think leopard is a neutral that goes with anything.


What new treasures have you found lately?


Be sure to get all of your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.
