I knew something was not quite working with this side of my livingroom.... I had a treasured painting of my Grandmother but it seemed a bit small for the space and the subject was not vibing with the rest of the space. Then I happened on this amazing educational chart
at the Rosebowl Fleamarket this past weekend and I new it was a perfect fit.
The After and before...
and here are a few more pics of my new space, it was featured
in the current issue of Flea Market Style but till the issue sold out, I could not show off all the photos:
Living room, facing the chart and bookcase above....
Details: made the curtains using Lotta Jansdotter fabric. I used Missoni trays from Target to freshen up old tv trays for side tables, the lamp was martha for kmart, with an eBay vintage shade.
I have since replaced the painting over the bed with the one of Granny and it is pefect. The wallpaper
is the easy change, good for renters!
This corner of my bedroom was a little tricky beacuse of the tv, I wanted some kind of art and found this cubby shelve at pottery barn.. I added the patterned paper to the back, of each cubby. I had a vintage chair I wanted to recover but found this groovy chair at Target online for less than any upholsteringquotes I got and I love it.
I love love love my office!
As mentioned in my blog piece
, I got the cabinet on eBay and the picture I bought on etsy, from Spain, it was just 11x14, printed on wood and in poor condition. I re-photographed and then had it printed on canvas.
I love this corner, the cabinet is from Urban Outfitters and I just recovered the front with a cooler fabric (it was just burlap before) ....
