Met & Thrifty Monday - Pillows are Done
Thanks so much to Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch and Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality for hosting these two really fun meme's every week. Please be sure to visit them to see what everyone has been up to.
Now I know you are all sick and tired of my living room. Well, since I really can't get hardwood floors or crown molding right now, about all I can do is redo pillows and accessories. I promise I won't show this room again for a long time.
I showed you the pictures of the fabric store that I love to go to. Well, I bought some navy and cream toile. I'm still on a quest to put a little country french into the room.
A view to the dining room side of the room.
I already had this tableskirt and it goes so well with my drapery fabric, plus it matches an ottoman that I made, so I tried to select fabrics that would go with it. In researching country french style, I noticed that they used a lot of different fabrics, so I have really done that. Just some spheres and a dish for the decor.
The end table in the front window got a few flowers and a blue and white vase that I had, along with a blue and white orb that I put on an egg stand.
A closeup of one of the pillows. The fringe was $1 yd. and the toile was $6.95 yd.
This shows the whole setting with the chair and the end table.
I placed the tapestry pillow of the hunt scene in the other leather chair along with a throw that I've had for a while.
I redid the floral arrangement to better coordinate with the one on the dining table and found a pretty blue and yellow transfereware plate at Marshalls on clearance for $5.
A detail look at the pillows. The buffalo check is fabric I already had. The toile pillow has navy and white check as well as a windowpane silk remant that I had.

A look at all of them on the sofa.
Well if country french is suppossed to be a mix of patterns, then I certainly have done that. There are 8 different fabrics in this room, and they all go together pretty good. All together this change cost $46.67 and was a lot of fun.
Thanks for taking a look at my new redo. I really appreciate your visits and hope you will come back again soon.
