Here was my living room before with large baron walls.
And here was project number one. Using scrapbook pater I bought at Wal-Mart for $5.00, I created a collage matching the color pallet of our hand-me-down couches.
Then I found this little baby at a yard sale, also for $5.00, and I thought it had a lot of potential.
Using some spray paint I already had, I painted the gold and red base a lovely shade of neutral grey.
I eventually would like to replace the shade with a white drum
Like this one.
I think the changes, although small (and cheap) have already made my living room more homey. The day I added the lamp Paul and I put Andrea to bed and then stood in the kitchen admiring how different our space felt. It made me wonder why it took me so long.
