Living Room update

So last night i posted about this little beauty i painted yesterday. 

Well i forgot to post about how it inspired me to paint our coffee table as well.

I bought some fabric that morning from Walmart. It was in the clearance section. I got the whole spool for $5, and there were about 5 yards on the spool. I had no idea what i was going to do with it but i loved the fabric and it was so cheap who could pass it up?
So last night as Robby was falling asleep on the couch i decided to make curtains out of it. I measure it and it was just enough to be able to cut the entire thing of fabric in half. No sewing involved. i literally cut it and hung it on the rod with these clips. Except mine were $4.99 and they are chocolate brown. Anyway, around 11:30 last night this is what i came up with.

And from the other angle.

And this morning.

I LOVE it!!!! i love how light and air and summer it is :) And i can put any color with those curtains!

To redo the living room it only cost me about $20 bucks, can you believe it!?!?
The side table was- $14
Coffee table-just painted with the extra paint from the table
Curtains- $5

But this is not the end of my Living room makeover! In a few months it will look completely different! Here is a hint of one of the new additions to our living room: Wood burning fireplace :) o the word just makes me happy. Stay tuned for more updates!

On a school note. I recieved my first unit, one of 6, on Sunday I will be about half way through today! Now i'm off to read about Color! Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
