I'm sorry I haven't posted in several days. Here in Michigan we've had rain, snow, sleet, wind and freezing temperatures. The one thing we haven't had is sunshine. So even though I've finished several projects recently it's been too dark and cloudy to take any pictures. Today is not really bright but it's better than it's been!
Our living room has been through a lot of changes since we've owned our house. But recently I found a beautiful pair of Bergere chairs and was inspired to change it one more time.
The chairs were originally covered in a beautiful quality red and green plaid. I'll share with you in the next few days how I changed them.
The love seat and Bergere chairs are all covered with drop cloths. I love the imperfect, nubby texture of the fabric. It's the perfect balance between casual and elegant for me. And they are so affordable. Especially if you're wanting to cover several pieces of furniture.
I slip covered our dining room chairs with the same drop cloths. They're so easy to throw in the washing machine after having our grand children over for dinner.
The truth is - I'm chicken! It's in perfect condition and I love it but I think I want it to match the other furniture. I painted the finish on those but I keep hesitating with this table.
I think I'd also like to move our piano downstairs. There's a good wall for it down there, the only one who plays it is our son who's travelling the world right now (Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Kathmandu, Dubai, and then Europe!) and I'd like to use this wall for something else.
The contractor will be here next week to start on the patio door in the dining room, a new front door and 3 new windows in our master bedroom and bathroom. I'm very happy about these changes!
Hope you're having a great day!
love and blessings~
