Our weekends have been planned around sales and excursions to specialty stores both near and far. In fact, we were up with the birds this morning so that we could hit a sale... and, score!! We picked up the most beautiful cast stone mantle and hearth. Truth be told, I never considered stone until I saw this gorgeous piece just begging to become a part of my living room... and for a fraction of what we had budgeted for.
Don't you love it when things come together?
As I've mentioned in past posts, the room that I'm most excited about is the playroom/sewing room. I love the challenge of coming up with ideas to combine the boys' playroom decor with girly things that inspire me on my side.
Here's what I've come up with so far.
My couch. I love this couch. It is so me. It resided in the keeping room in our last house. It will now live on my side of the room. I'm going to put it in the middle of the room, facing my side. It will serve as a room divider.
The wall color is "Latte." It's already up and I love it.
And here's the perfect fabric that I found for both sides of the room. It goes with my couch and looks playful/masculine enough to outfit the boys' side of the room.
And, let us not forget the blue jean rug. A true labor of love.
On my wish list for the room.
This desk from IKEA. One end for sewing and one end for cutting. Sort of industrial-looking, which is not really my style, but I think it will work.
