15th Table Top Tuesday - Living Room Reveal
Welcome to the 15th Table Top Tuesday. I can't wait to see everything that you guys have been up to.
I love my blue and yellow color scheme, however - - - -
I have been craving bright cheerful summer colors. Maybe it's hormones or something, so I decided to make a few changes and for now I love it. As I told you in my last post I only have $28.99 tied up in the change, so no big deal.
It really is bright and cheerful. It makes me happy.
All that fabric is now some fun pillows.
A new table topper and just a few accessories that I shopped the house for. I didn't buy anything new. One of my Faberge Egg plates in green, the little plant, candle holder and bird all came from the DT.
To save money, I just made a topper that goes to the floor instead of a new skirt. It takes a lot less fabric and looks more interesting I think. The fringe is some I had on hand and found for $1.00 yd, so I bought all they had at the time. I had just enough to trim the topper with about a foot left over.
The accessories could probably be better, but I didn't want to buy anything new, so everything came from just shopping the house. Another little plant and candle holder from the DT.
The same floral arrangement I was using. I just added some grass and berry stems I found at the DT and were in my stash. The cut glass hurricane candle holders were the ones I found at GW.
One of my decorator books that had lime green in the cover, a little bird from Michael's clearance aisle and a leaf plate with some green apples.
The dining table and buffet were changed out to some brighter accessories too.
The table runner is one I've had for a few years and the tall candlesticks add to the importance of the table with some yellow candles.
Flowers I already had. I try to buy things when Michael's has a sale and some of their larger stems are on sale for $l.00.
The bright yellow vase was a fun experiment. It was a cheap glass vase that flowers came in and I just spray painted it. It worked perfect. Now I am on the hunt for more glass to paint.
A really fun new look for so little money. Pillows make a huge difference. If you want to change your room, try some new fabrics, I think they work wonders. Pillows are by far one of the easiest sewing projects and can really change the look and feel of a room.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits.
