4 day long Weekend ahead of me – woo hoo!!! I have lots planned!!
Tomorrow I have some projects to finish so that I can show you guys soon. I will be fixing up an old Chandelier & DIY headboard for our second bedroom, and then it will be good to go! I am also going thrift/Antique hunting with my mom on Saturday. We are gonna head to the Peterborough area and hit up Gypsy Barn, Legacy Vintage & Habitat 4 Humanity. So I will make sure to take lots of pics for you guys!
Here is a Sneak Peak of the Before…(bought the Chandelier off Kijiji for $50 :))
Oh and I forgot to mention, I got this wicked new Camera, so no more crappy quality excuses!!!!
I am a loser I know, but man I love this Nikon!!! so easy & I got a wicked deal…..
Now here is a little inspiration……Mix of Rustic & Chic
So after a long day of renting a uhaul, driving to Ikea, unpacking the couch, driving the uhaul back and then finally putting the couch together… We are exhausted lol. However, I am loving the sectional. We are sooo happy!! (Even Adam because it has met his comfort standards :))
So here is what we were working with before….
And here is what our family room looks like now!
Okay so I really need an area rug, so gonna use my pottery barn gift card and get on that this week!! I think it will really tie the room together. And then the coffee table won’t blend into the floor…
Now in the picture below you will see I have the slip-covered Chair & the wicker chair… one of the two is going to go. I have a matching wicker chair so might have them both there… Or I have this old vintage chair I would love to get slip-covered and then have a little more mismatch in the room? Just gonna have to toy with the idea and see!!
And here are a couple pictures from our day! Griffy loved riding shotgun in the Uhaul…
Well, there you have it! I am one happy girl now…. Hope you are having a good Sunday!
Okay so I am just so thrilled, and have to share the news with you!! The Leather couches are moving out and the slip-covered sectional is moving in!!!! Woo hoo!! I have wanted a slip-covered sectional for soooo long, but I was having a hard time justifying buying a new couch when ours were perfectly fine. So I thought to myself – hmm, maybe if I purge some things and sell our couches then I could make up the money for the sectional? And that is exactly what happened!!
I sold a whole bunch of things that were just cluttering up our house. EX: Wii & Rockband (just been sitting in a box in the basement) two old coach purses, a bench jacket I have never worn, 2 lamps etc.. And I made over $600 on our Buy & Sell at work 🙂 And then today sold our couches!! I am soooooo happy. And now I don’t have to feel guilty which is even better!!
Here are our current couches:
Now I have some even better news…. I also got sent a $200 gift Certificate for Pottery Barn because they accidentally messed up my wedding registry. SOOOO, that means I can also get the area rug I have been wanting!!!! Remember when I posted my inspiration for the living room? if not, here is a peak.
What a week! I cannot wait to show you guys pictures when I am done!!!
These Dreamy Coastal Rooms are amazing…. The white, neutral backgrounds & touch of green just make the perfect pallette for a comfy & coastal living space.
Awesome topiary trees, to give some height & colour to the room.
Love the photo wall at the back… the table is also a rustic and gorgeous piece!
I love the mixture of different chairs & benches in their dining area…. and of course the slipcovers
Love the lanterns too!
Just makes me want to slip cover everything!!!! lol
