Once upon a time I shared with y’all a sad little landing area in my house. I am still shocked that I let y’all see such an ugly space but I try to keep it real around here. And real for us means that a lot of rooms in our house are unfinished or not the way I want them to be. If it were up to me I would basically dump everything we own and start all over! One thing I am trying to do this year though is be more content with what we have. I am going to dig deep for excitement over little projects even if they don’t bring my house to where I want it to be.
This are is far from what I envision but it is at least a little more presentable.
Here is the before:
No curtains, junk piles, granny lamp shade, bad chair upholstery….
Here it is with just a few changes:
(I’m not trying to disguise my after with small pictures I swear.
For some reason these pictures came out really grainy.)
So the bad upholstery is still there. This project has been pushed to the back burner more times than I can count but, I swear I have it on the list for this year or at least before my oldest is in college.
I did add some window panels (love. Found at HomeGoods)
I also cleaned up the junk and added a few accessories.
See that fiddle leaf fig single leaf?
Yeah that’s all that’s left of it 🙁
I will say this here in the company of friends…I killed three fiddle leafs in 2013. THREE.
So baby steps. I still hate this area but a little less.
Let’s play a game…what three items would you buy to add a little more to this area??
