It’s amazing what a little color can do to change the whole feel of a room. I finally decided to make my own rug to get the exact look I wanted.The blue rug and pillows really brightened up the entire area. I’ve seen friends paint some really neat rugs and was excited for the challenge.You can get them at antique stores, garage sales, and if you’re lucky — left out on the curb by owners who don’t want them anymore.See how great a trunk can look when you incorporate it into your living room decor!Occasionally you'll get lucky and find one in perfect condition (with a finish you like), but that's the exception rather than the rule. Refinishing is an option, but sometimes the wood isn't good enough — and sometimes you just want a different look.
Then you’ll place your tape down,following the straight laser line. Make sure the first coat is dry before you do a second coat! Drill a hole near each corner (on the bottom of the trunk). When she’s not creating, Jamielyn loves to chase her three little monkeys and snuggle up on the couch with her man.By that time, I was tired from running errands and frankly, the last thing I wanted to do was go check out the trunk, convincing myself the previous owners probably had a great reason for getting rid of it (maybe it was falling apart, moldy, had rodents, or something gross inside).Mary still wanted to go take a look so once we got inside I changed my mind again and thought there's no harm in checking it out.I’m SO excited to finally share my living room makeover with you today!In this post I’m going to show you how to make rugs with a little paint and also how to turn an old chest into a coffee table. I have searched and searched and could never find what I was looking for.
