Put Your Feet Up & Stay A While....

Let me tell you a story about a boy and girl who went for a leisurely bike ride one evening... They came upon a neighborhood whose trash was on the curb for the next day. When they found this little dandy, they thought, "This would be PERFECT in our living room"


Beautiful, ain't she? What's the matter.. can't you catch the vision?! :)  Really, you shoulda seen it BEFORE I took all the cotton crud off that was all over it. Gross. 

Anyway, it sparked a much needed mini-makeover for our living room (which was pretty much just thrown together when we moved in a couple of months ago):





It's amazing how just a few things can brighten up the room!

A fresh dose of color with a new ottoman and pillows to match (I recovered them with this vibrant "duck fabric" from Hancock Fabrics for $26 total, woohoo!), a fluffy new rug (walmart.com), a funky little lamp (T.J. Maxx), and some simple decor accents for the fireplace mantle and on the end tables to match.

That's the end of that story. Thanks for listening so intently. Now, it's time for me to go sit back and put my feet up [on my new ottoman].
