Well, I don't have anything super major to show today, but I did wanna show you guys the progress of my living room. I had originally made frames for my candle sconces out of river reeds, but that lasted all of 3 days before my little 3 year old destroyed them. I kinda sorta had a feeling that was going to happen! I went ahead and made a better, non-destructive (Knock on wood! Yes, that pun was shamelessly intended) solution by cutting a 1x6 in half and framing it out with lattice pieces. I did miter cuts and attached them with 2 black tacks on each end.
The coffee table was a craigslist find. It cost a whopping (<--- totally kidding about the 'whopping' part) $25 buckeroos. The previous owner must've had dogs (or a kid with pica) because some of the corners are gnawed on, but I love the large size of it.
The 3 center pillows and the rug are from Wal Mart. The 2 end pillows are from Ikea. The pillow covers looked much more green and a little less yellow in the store. I'm hoping to get around to tea staining them...someday.
Eventually I'll get around to taking pictures of the other side of the living room, but I'm still workin' on the bookshelves...which is a little ridiculous considering I've lived here for almost a year now. LOL.
