i put the white king size comforter on,
and turned it sideways (thanks to a great suggestion!).
i folded a dark brown coverlet on the end to break up the white.
i don’t prefer it (that’s what i teach my kids to say when they don’t like something),
but it works for now.
i also have a lot of work to do on the pillows, but again, good enough for now.
here’s the lamps joy found for me at marshall’s for $40 each.
kind of pricey, but after looking all over for these lamps and really any lamp in general, $40 is a good price.
lamps are so stinkin’ expensive!
they came with a drum shade, which i wanted, but its black.
it works, but i want to rework it somehow.
not sure yet…
and eventually, we’ll place the order we’ve planned on placing for over 3 years now
and get some window coverings.
we’re getting some woven wood shades.
at some point.
did i tell you that my husband OWNS a window coverings company?
i know, it’s bad.
yep, its kind of boring.
the memo board behind the chair will probably eventually hang above it,
but not actually sure if the chair will stay there.
and our wedding picture on top of the dresser should probably get hung.
i really want to add a bunch of pics to this wall, but i haven’t given it much thought.
you didn’t think this makeover would be fast, did you?
and here’s the garage sale chair all covered in sheets and blankets.
it really looks silly like this, but i can’t handle the salmon/reddish color of the upholstery underneath.
i’m keeping my eye out for fabric to recover/slipcover this with.
any thoughts on that one?
oh, and thanks so much for all your comments on this process!
so many of them have been really helpful!
