For almost 3 years now there has been some brownish, historical looking canvases hanging in the corner of our Living Room. I love them, but it was time for a change!
Right now I am in the mood for a lightening and brightening throughout our whole home. I've been painting furniture, changing drapes and selecting new accessories (More on that in the next few posts!).
Today I took this plain-looking corner as my latest "fix'er up" challenge:
Boring isn't it??!!
Well guess what?? Discount decor store to the rescue!!
My daughter has been taking part in "Craft Camp" at our local Michaels store so I have had plenty of time to peek around the shops in the area. I found all of these plates within minutes of each other and I didn't pay more that $4.00 each for them. Score! They were exactly what I needed to add some zest to the ho-hum corner of the Living Room.
To figure out the placement of my 6 plates, I laid them out on the hardwood floor (Hubby installed my floor. Isn't it lovely??)
Once it was perfect I began adding the nails to the wall and the plate-hangers to the plates. And up they went.
What a pretty mix, eh? I love the little spot of chartreuse mixed in with the deep rose and pale aqua.
Oh! I am in LOVE with this little area of my home now!! Plates, pillows, butterflies, flowers and my reading lamp. Could this get any better??
