I thought it was about time to show you what I've been working on this week, and the reason for the trip to Ikea last weekend!
Let me introduce you to Karl!
My new love!!
Oh no, I haven't replaced Josh, I just love my new sofa!
I'm also loving the Expedite bookcases we picked up from Ikea on our trip....I'm having lots of fun styling them with all my things. Oh, and of course they are great for storage!
The green curtains will eventually go, one thing at a time though.
Maybe something crisp and white, edged in a vibrant turquoise, well see, its still very much " in progress".
I just LOVE his sleek modern lines, and comfy relaxed slipcover, he's perfect!
I can't wait to I get my new fabric, and I'll start whipping up some new turquoise, coral, and aqua pillows for the room!
Look what I put on top of the new Ikea bookcase, my DIY Kate Spade Ampersand!
It will eventually make its way onto the wall, but I'm still looking for, or looking for inspiration for something I will paint, to go with it.
And don't you love my aqua hourglass, I've been wanting one for ages, and ZGallerie was tempting me with some at $35, but I ran into Home Goods last week and saw this one for $8!
Now that was too good to pass up!
Look what else I found at Home Goods!
There was one right next to Ikea and I just HAD to run in to see what I could find, and I am SO HAPPY I did! I scored this gorgeous nailhead trimmed ottoman for only $35! It was originally $69, but I got it on clearance! Perfect color for the new living room, I really couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it, I think I may have even squealed! Poor Josh, I think I embarrassed him...haha...but I LOVE it! Don't you?!
Do you want to know, this coffee table it what actually got me interested in DIY!
It was the very first thing I ever refinished, and has made it through college and several moves afterwards.
I've loved it for so long I'm not sure what I'm going to do, I'm really wanting to get something a little more modern, but I can't bare to get rid of the thing!
My little nailhead trimmed ottoman is looking perfect next to Karl!
Josh surprised me with some lovely flowers for Valentines Day! I've got them on my coffee table, for some reason that's were I seem to enjoy them the most. Maybe one of these days I'll find a new favorite spot.
Well, there you go, that's just a little glimpse of some of the changes going on around here!
What have you all been up to lately?
