One last tiny detail for the living room was adding two throw pillows to the sofa. They are the same color as my sheer that drapes over and above my window. Of course, they were clearance finds! Kohl's for around $5 each.Thanks to Nester for the 'push' in the 10 minute right direction! Now I think it's time to relax and ENJOY! Try it. 10 minutes, give or take a few, to a new look you will love and within a tiny budget!
10 minute makeovers
Nester is having a finale and I barely made it! For the past several weeks she has had a series going on her blog, The Nesting Place for 10 minute room makeovers. If you have 10 minutes and want a room you will love, then you need to hop over to her blog (click the pretty below) and check out what the ladies are sharing!
For several weeks on my own, I have been re-doing, moving things around, adding 'junk' treasure finds, clearance deals to my home. Simply I am trying to get all of the rooms in my house de-cluttered, comfy and cozy with a little bit of SHINE.
I have wanted to tackle the top of the Entertainment Center for weeks! So here is my before photo. Family photos with no 'place' in my house ended up here. I wanted a more 'formal' look. So I cleaned off ALL the photos and dusted ....yes, dusted the top. Tonight, like just a bit ago. I am surprised I am not in a sneezing fit! Yes, it was VERY dusty up there.
I had already 'shopped the house' and knew I only had a few items. So I stopped by Hobby Lobby on the way home from work today. SCORE! They have marked their home stuff down to 80% OFF! So here are the results of my cleaning, shopping stop and makeover:keeping that picture. It was 'free' ...yes free, from the junk store about a month ago. I plan to have a watercolor of a local round barn, matted in that frame. I just keep forgetting to put it in the car and dash it over to Hobby Lobby.
I even replaced the battery in the clock! It hadn't kept time in months. Kept forgetting that too. What is it about being over 40? I developed CRS ... can't remember stuff!
Before I forget (Ha!). I want to also share again, the top of my frig. Remember a little over a week ago I cleaned it off and placed my 'new' flea market find on top with a couple of other items. You can view that old post here. With this past weekends trip to Atlanta, I also stopped in HomeGoods. We have a TJMaxx which I love! But I'd missed out on the nice glass jars by waiting too long. Found one at HomeGoods. $7.99 for a LARGE glass jar. Placed it on the top of the frig, filled with TJMaxx eggs and some Dollar Tree moss. Along with that are my other Dollar Tree purchases; a cute white vase and fake flowers. Now I am ready for spring!
