Last week, I was at Home Fabrics looking for something to reupholster a couple of chairs for the office. I didn’t find what I was wanting, but I did run into this great thick cotton fabric in the clearance bin. It is a beautiful light brown color. Sorry for the overcast day pictures, but in real life the fabric is a bit richer. I really love the color. It is rich enough to be substantial, but light enough to not overpower the beautiful windows. It almost has a linen look. And, the best part is that it was only $1.50 per yard!
I purchased this curtain rod on clearance a few years ago with the intent to use it in the office, but that hasn’t happened. So, I decided to put it up in the living room for now. I have never really cared for the style of the rod, but I knew I could paint it and have it work just fine with my decor. I needed the 120 length rod for these big windows, and I think I got it for a steal at $15. Eventually I would like to hang wooden rods in here as well as the dining room windows, but this will be perfect for now
I just used a couple of coats of regular old black craft paint to cover the bronze color,
and it ended up looking like this:
I also purchased this lamp at TJMaxx the other day on clearance for only $37! It is a chunky beautiful cream painted wood lamp. I LOVE it. I haven’t decided if I will use it in here or in the office. The original plan was to change out the shade for a linen one, but I kind of like the contrast of the black. I will just have to live with it for a while to see.
In the background you can see a sneak peak of a chalkboard drawing that I will be featuring on a major website soon. I will definitely share a link when it goes live!
I hope you are having a wonderful week!
